Carlow Kilkenny FC PRO Paul Brophy is delighted with how their teams are performing at the moment.
Appearing as a guest on KCLR’s Sunday Scoreline, Brophy spoke about the new U17 girls’ team at the club and the affect it has had on the entire club.
He said: “When it’s new you’re going into the unknown but the whole management team and the players have created a good spirit and a good bond. We’re really happy with the first year of the team.”
He also revealed that the club are hoping to have an U19 women’s team in place for the start of next season.
“The plan is to have an U19 team. A lot of the players will be too old to remain with the U17 team and we don’t want to lose those girls, so we want an U17 and an U19 girls team for next season.”
Brophy believes that the boys’ teams are continuing to improve, with both the U15 and U17 sides putting in strong performances recently.
“Unfortunately, our U17 side lost to a strong Limerick team last week. Despite that, our U15’s were going well before the season was cancelled and our U17’s had a good run of results. There’s a lot of progress that has been made and hopefully it’s onwards and upwards.”
