Glanmire U 9’s reaching for the Stars

The Glanmire u9s are just over than half way through their 2018 season and to date have really progressed on their achievements last year. The boys returned to training on the 17th February, beginning with indoor skills sessions in Old Christians  and moving to the pike in April, where they were likened to young calves being let onto grass after a long winter. In total there have been approx 18 training sessions, interspersed with league games against Youghal (home and away), St Finbarrs, Douglas, Midleton, valley rovers,  Kinsale (home and away) and Kilmurry with the lads picking up from where they finished last year and playing a lovely brand of football. With over 45 players registered the coaches have had their work cut out for them but focused training sessions along with some good planning have made it a worthwhile and enjoyable season to date. Notwithstanding the improving skills levels, the most impressive characteristic to date has been the lads starting to develop a sense of “being a team” and playing with a never say die spirit, playing for each other while enjoying their football. As always we are always looking to recruit new players and also volunteers to help out with the club in any capacity, whether it be coaching, fund raising or helping out on match days. There is a core coaching crew committed to helping these talented u9s become the best they can be, and help on every front is always welcome in the club, please contact any of the coaching team or committee if you would like to get involved.on another note it was great to see Donnacha o’Donovan back oh his feet and we hope it won’t be long before he’s back on the field of play sporting the Glanmire jersey. Heres to a successful and enjoyable next few months and see link for some photos from this years games.
