Mooncoin Celtic Soccer Marathon 2023

Last Sunday we held our annual soccer marathon which was followed by our end of season awards. A big crowd came through our new gates and enjoyed a lovely sunny afternoon with plenty of fun had among coaches and players in all games and cross bar challenges. We finished with our player of the year awards for season 2022 /2023. A big thanks to everyone that helped set up for the day, Wild Willow Coffee Trailer for pitching up for the day and our two chefs Adam Cunningham and Mark Quinn for running the BBQ. Thanks must go to Mondo’s Takeaway for sponsoring our crossbar challenge prizes. Final thanks goes to everyone that sponsored our Soccer Marathon, it was very much appreciated.

Academy u8s and u9s playing with smiles today

The weather may have stopped all schoolboys fixtures today but not our u8 and u9 boys.

Carrick United were hosts this morning for a bundle of games with plenty goals, saves, tackles, a few tears and plenty smiles afterwards.

Massive thanks to Keith, Philip and all Carrick coaches and also our own coaching team. 👏👏👏

Academy under lights in Suir Crescent

Our academy boys and girls moved under the lights in Suir Crescent for this week and continue to show great improvements.

We would not be able to accommodate our 60-70 kids weekly without the dedication of our academy coaches who help nurture our young players. 👏👏👏👏👏 To all our coaches, young and not so young.

League of Ireland Academy kicks off this weekend

The League of Ireland Academy programme was launched today and officially kicks off on Saturday, with local man Daniel Ponce de Leon taking part given he recently signed from Mooncoin Celtic to the Waterford FC U14 academy.

We will be watching out for Daniel in the next few weeks and months, as he gets to play Bohemians of Dublin, Wexford FC, Shamrock Rovers, Cork and many other national teams across the county.

We wish him and his team the very best of luck in the new 2023 LOI Academy season.
