STUDENTS OF THE GAME

Even as they prepare together for the new league season, Bohemian midfielders Stephen Traynor and Andy Mulligan are also preparing to oppose each other.

Their college teams compete in a CUFL (Colleges and Universities Football League) semi-final next Wednesday.

Traynor plays with DCU, who have reached the semi-finals for the first time. They meet title holders IT Carlow, for whom Mulligan scored twice in their 5-1 quarter-final demolition of University of Limerick.

The semi-final takes place at Home Farm FC, Whitehall, on Wednesday 20 February (2pm). The following week, DCU compete again for college football honours in the Collingwood Cup being staged at University of Ulster Jordanstown.

Former Bohemians David Lodola, Dan Mahon and Robbie Gaul are also members of the DCU squad.

WELL DONE TO OUR U-11s

Well done to the Under-11s who put in fantastic squad performance on Saturday (February 9th 2013).

In the first half, the aim was to press the ball with the nearest two players – the closest to press the opponent in possession and the second to cover.

We also looked to take players on 1v1 in the box and to try to get a shot on target.

In the first half, we scored a goal by winning the ball back through pressure and also from a corner and got plenty of shots on target.

We also worked on the position of our last defender and kept a clean sheet.

In the second half – we worked on the full-back providing cover for the last defender with the positioning of the GK and through great defending and teamwork, we kept a clean sheet again.

We also looked to draw their defenders in around the box and make them think we would go 1 v 1 and then lay off to runners from midfield.

We created more chances and scored two goals from laying the ball off to a midfielder.

A great team effort, everyone enjoyed the game and we also learned to make sure we keep our eyes on the ball as we track back to our positions in our team shape when the ball goes dead, in case they try to restart play quickly.

Lots of great support from the families which is always important.

Rehydration and refuelling now ahead of training Tuesday!

Well done lads!

Lisa Fallon.

SVP TAKE CENTRE STAGE

There was a full house at Clontarf’s Viking Theatre on Monday (4 February) when Peter Sheridan presented his latest solo show in aid of St Vincent de Paul (SVP).

Bohemian FC organised the fundraiser in association with the Viking Theatre. After the performance, a cheque for €650 was presented to SVP Finglas.

Sheridan’s show, Break A Leg, is based on his second memoir, recently published under the same title.

The performance weaves together stories from Sheridan’s earliest days in amateur drama under his father’s guidance to his pioneering projects of the 1980s in community drama in Dublin’s inner city. The run continues at the Viking Theatre until Saturday (9 February).

Accepting the cheque on behalf of SVP, Jimmy Scurry told the audience that he too was brought up in Sherriff Street and could confirm that the people living in the flats, like his own family, regarded the people in the houses, like the Sheridan family, as “snobs”!

In recognition of their contribution to the event, Bohemian PRO Tommy Hynes presented Laura Dowdall and Andy Murray of the Viking Theatre and Peter Sheridan with honorary membership of Bohemian FC.
