U17s Trip To The UK

  • Thu, Feb 28, 2019 @ 7:00

Ahead of the start of the SSE Airtricity Under 17 league our academy side were in the UK earlier this week as part of their pre-season preparations.

The squad of 19 players (which includes nine internationals) enjoyed the 3-day trip which included matches against the academy sides from Burnley and Bolton Wanderers. The Saints equipped themselves well in both games playing a free flowing attacking style of football. The Saints won both games with the goals coming from Cian Kavanagh, Luke Hennessy, Sami Ayoola, Cian Corbally and Darragh Burns.

You can watch the goals from the Bolton game here:




The squad were also at the John Smith's Stadium on Tuesday night to watch the game between Huddersfield Town and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

We would like to thank the staff and players of Burnley (in particular Academy manager Jonathon Pepper) and Bolton (in particular Academy manager Jimmy Philips) who took time to show us their academy facilities and chat to our staff and players.

All the information on our Under 17s academy side is available here
