Paddy commented “ We want to kick off the Selection process as early as possible and stay with the same format of Selection
which brought us great success in 2008 , when we finished up in a very creditable 5 th position overall. We began around this
time last year with the Open Trials across the County and by mid March or early April had assembled a very formidable
Training Squad of approx 30 players . During April we trained and played a few challenge games against real quality
opponents in NI Under 18 Schools and Donegal County U18’s and then selected a very talented and committed squad of 18
He went on to say “Our aim is to have the 18 player Squad identified for the first week in May so in the next fourteen weeks
there will be a lot of organizing , travelling and work to be undertaken by my very committed management team and myself .
I’m greatly encouraged and really appreciative of the support which I have received from the “Football Family” across the
County whom I have been in contact with about organizing Trials , so thanks to everyone , we are indebted to your support
and co-operation . “
Paddy said “ I’m a great believer in the open Trial process as it gives every player in the County an opportunity to come along
and display their skill and ability so if you know of any players who could do a job for us please encourage them to come
along to the Trial , they will be most welcome. Details of Trials in other areas of the County will follow shortly . Keep up to
date on the County Website www.countylondonderryfa.co.uk”
PLEASE NOTE :
PREMIER players for the 2009 Tournament are 1992 Birthdays but this shouldn’t hinder a “year young” player coming
along to the Trial . If Managers or Coaches of Clubs feel that there is a 1993 birthday who can perform at this level then please
encourage that player to come along to the Trial .
Thanks in advance for your help and I look forward to well supported and successful Trials.
