Dublin trip for 05-06 teams
The FDC will travel to Dublin on the 16th October, with the 2005 & 2006 teams, to play friendly games against St Mochtas FC. Formed in 1949 the Clonsilla club entered schoolboy football in 1961, and provide an excellent sporting base for its now 500 strong membership. The most famous player to come through their ranks and onto professional football was former Liverpool, Man City, Wimbledon and Rep of Ireland international winger Mark Kennedy.
New Academy Director, Colin Hawkins, a former professional who has clocked up over 350 appearances with a host of clubs including Coventry City, Brighton and Shamrock Rovers, is the man tasked with taking the academy into a new era. The Galway man has kindly invited us to Dublin with some of our teams, and we look forward to a great day out for the players, coaches and parents.
The club will be putting on a 52 seater bus, we will have a few seats available for parents wishing to travel with us on the day. Seats will be allocated on a first come, first served basis and news of this will be released closer to the time. So please keep an eye out on our social media outlets and indeed our new website www.cliftonvillefdc.co.uk
