St Patricks Day Parade 2018


The under 14 Girls travelled to the UK with a 5.45am start time which all were on time for...Parents too!! The opponent today was the weather on the sea and land but this did not dampen the spirits as the girls sang their way to the hotel in time to see Ireland secure the grand slam. After a meal in the hotel they travelled to Old Trafford to watch the FA cup tie between Manchester United and Brighton. To the players delight they even featured in the match programme to give them all a great sovenir of the first day of the trip. The Girls started day 2 at the Jamie Carragher Learning Academy with a technical session focusing on touch, turns, speed of play and movement. The girls adapted to the points highlighted and the level of intensity improved as the session progressed. The second session of the day for the girls consisted of patterns of play and positionial knowledge. We were delighted that Jamie Carragher was able to attend and talk about his career, listen to the girls stories and questions and also pose for every photograph, autogragh and jersey signing the players and their parents requested. At the end of the session captain Katie Marah presented Jamie with a Wicklow Rovers pennant "In Friendship" for all the support and assistance the 23 Foundation, Coaches and family gave to the girls squad to get to Liverpool and also provide the top coaching for today's sessions.

At the time of going to print we had 39 players safely through to round 5 of our Last Man Standing competition. Arsenal’s 3-0 win over Watford saw 17 players progress, Chelsea’s narrow 2-1 victory over London neighbours Crystal Palace meant a further 10 players went through. Victories for Everton [5], Leicester [4], Newcastle [2] and Tottenham [1] over Brighton, West Brom, Southampton and Bournemouth respectively saw 12 more players safely through to the next stage. As it stands another 9 players will be hoping to join them when their selection Manchester City travel to take on Stoke in the Monday night game. Two players made their exit from the competition at the weekend when their selections West Ham and Huddersfield failed to win, the Hammers losing 3-0 at home to Burnley and Huddersfield only managing a scoreless draw at home to Swansea. There is no Last Man Standing selections required next week due to FA Cup action.
