Fun-filled week at the second Balbriggan FC summer soccer camp

The second of two FAI Summer Soccer Schools took place at Balbriggan FC last week with youngsters enjoying plenty of fun and games.

Open to both boys and girls aged 6-14, St Molaga's Park showcased the very best of local talent during a fun-filled week.

Heavy showers at times during the week didn't dampen enthusiasm as the youngsters were put through their paces by the coaches over the course of the five days.

And you'd never know the next Robbie Keane or Stephanie Roche may have been taking part waiting to be discoverered. Famous graduates over the years have included Shane Long, John O'Shea, Megan Campbell and Katie McCabe.

All participants on the camp, organised in association with SportsDirect, received a football, a summer soccer school kit and a backpack.

The underage section is on its summer break at the moment but will returning shortly to competitive action and this was an ideal way of getting them back in the swing of things.
