Faughs u15s are Div 4 league champions.

Having won 6 in a row and had our 7th game conceded by the opposition, Faughs are the Div 4 league champions for 2019. Pushed hard all the way by Thomas Davis and Éire Óg of Greystones, Faughs managed to be the only team in Div 4 to complete their full league programme undefeated. This had a lot to do with the attitude of the girls at training which has been exemplary all year. We boasted the best defensive record in the league, an astounding fact given that we didn’t have a dedicated goalkeeper within the squad.

Much done but a lot more to do. The skill levels within the squad has certainly improved and the next stage in our development will be to foster some better decision making by the girls when under match pressure. We are learning all the time and will need to improve before facing much tougher challenges come championship time in the Autumn but for the moment we have yet to be bettered in 2019.

PRACTICE              PRACTICE               PRACTICE

Please encourage your daughters to practice at home as much as possible. The difference between kids who are good at sport and those who are not is purely down to how much practice they do, “natural talent” has nothing to do with it !.

Parents can play an important roll by asking the girls to demonstrate what they have been working on.

 



We have some work to do but the drills and skill levels on show in this video is where we need to get to this year.
