Over the past number of years we have been working really hard within our Junior section to develop a pathway which ensures the boys playing hockey within the club can play at a competitive level when they reach U14.
Welllll..... this year history has been made – we have entered an U14 boys team in a Leinster League.
These matches will be full pitch 11 aside games, 25 minutes per half. The boys have 7 games to play between now and the 21 of February; 4 home games and only 3 away games.
This is a huge opportunity for these boys to get to play at the competitve level they have all been longing for. It will not only develop their individual hockey skills, it will teach them to wear their club colors with pride and know they are they start of something really exciting in what is a new era for our club.
The first match this Sunday will be this coming Sunday @ 14:00 and we would really love as much support as possible!
22.11 Newbridge vs North Kildare @ 2pm Newbridge College

A huge thank you and well done to Tony & Melissa for all the hard work so far this year and also a huge thank you to all of our junior coaches who have coached these boys over the last number of years.
