10 years ago Clonee United won their first league title
October 21, 2017
NSDL Under 7C league champions.
Back in the day of competitive seven a side games Clonee United won their first league title.
The squad includes a couple of players who are still playing for Clonee Utd Under15’s this year – Daniel Ash and Adam Strastian.
Other players from the original team are still playing football and include Christian Madden and Walter Olatunji. Conor Aughney played for several teams, but unfortunately doesn’t play any more. The rest of the squad was made up of Conor Byrne, Glen Smith, Josh Taylor and Sean McCauley.
The coach is still coaching the aforementioned under 15’s and the under 8 teams. He is still trying to recapture the feeling in Ashbourne when Walter Olatunji scored a screamer from 20m to win the away game 2:1 and secure Clonee Utd’s first silverware.
Well done lads, happy memories. Let’s see if we can recapture that feeling again next year!
