John Mitchels U8 boys and girls had a busy session this week with a lot of time spent on running and ball control. It’s great to see all kids improving every week. Training continues next Sunday 10am until then keep practicing!!

We had our second day of training last Sunday and we all had a great time. Joey, Robbie and Gerard came well on time and after a short kick around put in great effort in the training. Mark, Conor and Cathal showed their skills in the skills development part of training and played well. Jim, Tadhg, Lisa and Luke showed why they are players to look out for in the future because of the effort they put in. Adian, Alana, Gearoid and the rest of the players worked hard and impressed the coaches. Well done to all the players and see you next Sunday
