Training by Zoom - 10 May 2020
Coronavirus hasn't stopped Baldoyle United Under 9s from practicing their skills. Coaches Eoin Leeson, Barry Byrne and Sean Russell have set up weekly 30-minute training sessions by ZOOM. The boys join the session from the safety of their own gardens and the coaches put them through their paces. It's all finished off with a fun quiz.
U16 girls coach Justin Reilly has also used Padlet, Strava and coach education webinars to help develop his team.
It's a fantastic initiative from the lads and we hope to see other coaches doing it over the next few weeks. Click image to enlarge
Under 12s win North Leinster SFAI Cup
Baldoyle United U12s are Schoolboys Football Association of Ireland Nth Leinster Cup winners. The boys beat a very strong Skerries Town side 2-1 at the Oscar Traynor Centre in Coolock. Cheered on by a large Baldoyle crowd the boys conceded the first goal but showed great spirit to equalise before half time. A key moment in the game came early in the second half. A penalty awarded to Skerries was brilliantly saved by Oisin. Then with 10 minutes left a cross from Aaron found Kit at the back post who stuck it away in the corner to give Baldoyle a 2-1 win. A fantastic achievement for the team and the club. Huge credit to coaches Sinead McKenna and Paul Lally, and everyone involved in coaching the boys over the last few years.
