Munster U15 Blitz
Waterford Ladies Gaelic Football Association were well represented at the U15 Munster Development Academies blitz held in Mallow on Saturday 21st September last.
In advance of the blitz, 60 girls from all over Waterford attended a 9-week long academy training programme. Three Waterford teams were selected from the academy attendees to represent the Déise in Mallow.
The blitz saw over 500 girls play football in 24 teams representing all six counties of Munster.
In all 36 games of football were played. The Waterford teams produced an excellent standard of football, watched and encouraged by their supporters. Well done to all the Déise girls for representing their clubs & county with such distinction.
Huge thanks are due to head coach Johnny Troy for so successfully organising this impressive academy training project! He was ably assisted by coaches Aaron Beresford, Catriona Casey, Fionnuala Flynn, Sophie Troy and Peter Ryan who gave up a large part of their summer to pass on their knowledge and skill to the next generation of Waterford footballers.
Thanks, are due to also to Dungarvan GAA Club for the generous use of their facilities and to Omnivend who part sponsored the custom designed playing kit for academy participants. We would also like to acknowledge the support of all the parents and guardians who brought the girls to the training sessions.
Finally, we’d like to thank the County Board of the WLGFA and Development Officer Richard Hayes for their support of the Development Academy Programme. The future looks bright for Waterford Ladies Football.
