Dollingstown Football Club would like to take this opportunity to confirm and welcome Samuel Cartwright as our Team Manager for our Under 17’s who will enter the Lisburn Invitational League next season. Samuel has been coaching Portadown U12’s for the last 2 seasons as well as playing with Ambassadors FC and all at Dollingstown would like to wish him the best and we all look forward to helping and working alongside him.
Samuel will be bringing in Daniel Bennett who is no stranger to Planters Park having been training with the Reserves over parts of the past season and who also was part of the double winning Reserves team in the 2013/14 season when they won the MUFL Reserve Division 1 and also the O’Hara Cup and in the following season bringing the Wilmor Johnston Memorial Trophy to Planters Park.
Samuel will be looking to bring in another coach in the coming weeks as preparation is well under way as David Harvey has been holding open training sessions from last Christmas time and there have been 3 friendly/trail games held over the past few weeks with more organised in the coming weeks with various interested players taking part as we look to build as we head into the 1st season with our 1st youth team.
We wish Samuel and Dan all the best and officially welcome them to Planters Park.
