HELD in the viewing lounge at Coleraine Showgrounds on Wednesday evening, the Senior Academy Presentation Evening celebrated the efforts of our U16s, U18s & U20s as the current NIFL Academy season draws to a close…
Ollie Mullan, Senior Academy director opened proceedings providing an overview of the season and in doing so highlighted the tireless efforts of the coaching staff, who over the course of the season went above and beyond their role to ensure that the high standards expected, where met and surpassed. Ollie also thanked the board for their support throughout the season, referencing the amount of work that went on behind the scenes to pull together all the necessary paperwork required for the U20s participation in UEFA Youth League.
