The Junior Academy will be led by head of Junior Academy & UEFA A license head coach Declan Coleman. Declan comes with a wealth of experience and is one of the most respected coaches in Ireland.

Speaking at the launch of the Junior Academy, Declan said: “I am delighted that we are expanding the Junior Academy to West Cork. We have kids coming to the Musgrave Park sessions from all over Cork and Munster and the West Cork branch is the first where we can bring the academy to strong regions of support that we have. Like the Musgrave Park branch, the kids will be coming into a fun, learning environment under the Cork City umbrella and we can’t wait to get going. We are also always on the lookout for new coaches to join our Musgrave and West Cork branches, these paid roles are a great way for coaches to gain valuable experience in the coaching world, to register your interest please drop us an email using the address below.”

Commercial Manager Paul Deasy said: “The participation for the Musgrave Park branch has blown us away, this really stemmed the idea of bringing the academy to West Cork where there is a huge appetite for Cork City FC. The academy is a great way for boys/girls in the West Cork region to gain top class coaching whilst being able to continue to play with their local clubs. I would again also like to thank Net World Sports for continuing as primary sponsors who will supply top quality FORZA training equipment for the academy.”

Net World Sports Founder & CEO Alex Lovén said: “We’re delighted to continue our involvement with the Cork City FC Junior Academy as it expands to West Cork.
