FAI U15 Ireland Trials

Congratulations to Form 3 High School pupil, Alex Aspil, who has recently completed two selection trials for the FAI U15 Ireland International team. This is no real surprise for those who know Alex, as he was also selected for the FAI – Emerging Talent Programme.  This is both the pool of the best players (in 11 FAI centres around the country) from which the International schoolboy teams are selected, and an FAI intensive coaching and strength and conditioning camp held once per week for whole season.
Alex also plays club football for Cherry Orchard FC (COFC), who this year won the Dublin District
Schoolboy League
(DDSL) Premier Division (regarded as the best/toughest schoolboy league in the country). They won this league without losing a game and having only drawn 1 out of 18.
This successful team were also Runners-Up in the FAI All-Ireland Cup. This is a countrywide, 4 province tournament with in excess of 200 of the best schoolboy teams…and involved trips to play away fixtures in Kerry and Cork.  Aspil's dedication to the sport over the last 12 months has taken him to Brentford and Fulham in the UK for trials-fixtures with imminent club trips to both Hearts (Edinburgh, Scotland) and Eindhoven (Holland).
