Older Age Groups Flying The Flag
The four oldest age groups at our club are going into the latter stages of this season in great league positions in their respective divisions.
A lot of these boys are great role models to our younger players off the pitch, taking time to interact with them with simple 'hellos' or 'pass the ball mate'. I don't think these older teams realise how much it means to a young player, looking up at someone who is older and being noticed.
It is important to highlight how proud we are of them with their efforts both on and off the pitch, especially after the interruptions of last season.
"The lads attitudes have been outstanding, as have the competiveness and workrate from them all. This has made it difficult when selecting a team for games".
There seems to be a great bond within the squad and the squad have been well supported by parents throughout.
"Their success this season has been down to the hard work the boys have been putting in on the training field.
80 % of the team attend the same school, so there is a strong team bond which shows on the pitch, all fighting for each other each week.
"The main reason we have improved is our team spirit and enthusiasm they have all become good mates on and off the pitch and are a pleasure to coach".
"Key to this season is the consistency in numbers showing up at training and the adding of three players who played U18 football last season".
