Historic Weekend At The Belvo Academy

(11 Sep 2017)

By Jamie Moore 











We had a history making weekend at our world famous Belvo Academy with over 100 players attending for the first time ever.

The Belvo Academy takes place in our Clontarf Astro Complex from 9.30am every Saturday morning and we're proud to report we had record numbers on Saturday.

Academy Director Ciaran Duffy spoke to BelvedereFC.Com on Monday morning.

"We had another fantastic day at The Academy on Saturday and we were delighted to have so many players at our second session back following the summer break."

"We had two squads playing DDSL 5-a-side matches away from home and a number of new players in Clontarf with us for the first time. It takes great dedication from our coaches to cater for this number of young kids efficiently."











These coaches will also take the players out of the academy onto our U8 teams in coming years, as Ciaran explained.

"We do our best to provide one of the best underage Academies in Dublin and we feel we do that each week, with lots of help from the players, parents and coaches Wes, Eoghan, Ray, Gary, Jimmy, Darran, Eddie, Glen, Ciaran, Muir,  Martin, Alan,  Sean, Joe and Wayne for their time and effort."

Ciaran says we are always looking for more coaches.

"Whether you're young or old, parent or non-parent, experienced or not, we believe we have a good pathway for coaches to learn the ropes in our academy, coaching Belvo's future stars and taking them forward into team football. Please contact us if you are interested in coaching with us in the Belvo academy."











Current stars like Graham Burke (Shamrock Rovers), Dan McKenna (Wolves) and Ireland senior international Wes Hoolahan have come through our Belvo Academy.

The Belvo Academy is back in Clontarf this Saturday at 9.30am with all newcomers welcome.
