Under 13 management team announced

Cork City FC are delighted to announce the management team for our new Under 13 team.

The team will compete in the inaugural National Under 13 League, which is set to begin at the end of March.

The team will be managed by David Moore, and he told CorkCityFC.ie that he was looking forward to the role: “It is an exciting time. I came in and worked with Colin (Healy) in the Under 19s last season, and I have been very impressed with the standards and the professionalism.”

“With the under 13 League starting now, there is an Elite Player Pathway all the way from Under 13s to Under 19s and it is an opportunity for young players to test themselves against the best in the country.”

“There is tremendous work being done locally by the Cork Schoolboy’s League and their clubs. I was a coach in the schoolboy’s league myself, so I know the amount of work being done behind the scenes. There are a huge number of people putting in so much work on a voluntary basis, and they have a huge role to play in developing players.”

Joining David’s management team will be:

Alan Bennett- assistant manager

Mark Turner- coach

Des O’Neill- coach

Ian Giltinan- goalkeeping coach

Alan Bennett also gave his thoughts to CorkCityFC.ie, saying: “This is a really exciting opportunity and one I am really looking forward to. I have been working on my coaching qualifications for a while and am just in the final stages of the UEFA Elite Youth A Licence now.”

“I am happy to be involved and really looking forward to working with Dave, the other coaches and, of course, the players. The aim is to develop the players to the best of my ability.”

Colin Healy, City’s Head of Academy, commented: “Dave came in about halfway through last season with the Under 19s and he has been very good to work with, so I know what we are getting with him now going into the Under 13s. He is a very good coach, a very good person and he knows the players. He has brought in a very good backroom staff as well, with the likes of Alan Bennett, and I think we have a good combination there now who will work with the players.”

“He has worked a lot at schoolboy level, so he knows the players and knows what we are looking for. There is huge work being done at schoolboys level that is developing some excellent players, and we hope to build on that and give them the opportunity to progress along the pathway to professional football.”
