Under 17 Open Day
UCD have a great tradition of bringing through some of the SSE Airtricity League’s best players and we are delighted to announce the new date of our open day for our new under 17 side ahead of the forthcoming 2015/16 season. Players are requested to meet at the UCD Bowl at 10.30am on Saturday June 6th and should bring full training gear.
Similar to our under 19 side, our under 17 side will compete at the highest level in the country at their respective age group, in the brand new SSE Airtricity under 17 league.
We were delighted that four of our under 19 team from last season were selected for the Irish Schools Team which won the Centenary Shield after victories over Northern Ireland, Wales, and England, and we hope that the new under 17 division will give players a pathway to similar success.
As well as being able to offer players the opportunity to play for one of the country’s top clubs with access to top quality facilities and coaches, UCD also offer a potential pathway for players through our Scholarship scheme which allows players to combine their football with studying for a degree at one of Ireland’s premier Universities.
Our 2015/15 open days will allow potential players the opportunity to come see the club for themselves and to learn more about the opportunities before them.
