BOHEMIANS RETURN TO PHOENIX PARK

Bohemians have agreed a deal with the FAI to use the Phoenix Park Fifteen Acres facility.

It marks a return for the club to the site of our foundation. On September 6th, 1890, the Bohemian Football Club was formed in the gate-lodge of the Phoenix Park.

Now, Bohemians will now see our schoolboy sections play there at Fifteen Acres having reached an agreement with the FAI.

Club President Matt Devaney believes the deal is integral to the future of the club.

He said: “We needed to have a permanent base from which, we can grow our football club from. To have this on our door-step, it’s a god-send for the club.

“We meet the FAI quite regularly and I happened to mention to Richard Fahey (FAI Director of Club Licensing and Facility Development) that we’re struggling for pitches as we’ve doubled the amount of teams we operate over the last few years.

“Richard was able to speak to John Delaney and thankfully, we’ve been able to get this all important move.

“It’s a great time for the under-age football in Ireland and it probably hasn’t got the media coverage it’s deserved. The changes to the under-age structure are a game-changer for Irish football, anyone in the SSE Airtricity League would acknowledge that.”

There are up to 12 pitches that can be used at the facility and Bohemians are set to have their small-sided games (U8-U11) on Saturdays and their 11-a-side matches (U14 and U16) played on a Sunday.

Youth Director Conor Emerson said: “This is an important part of our history as we’re rebuilding the youth section of the club.

“The SSE Airtricity League under-age structure is also a huge help to our under-age teams as we’ve been able to attract a certain standard of player.

“It won’t be long until we can offer the full path-way right through to the first-team which is really exciting. Phoenix Park is such a beautiful location which is very much in our locality with 12 full-size pitches so it’s ideal for the club to grow its youth section in.”

FAI Director of Club Licensing and Facility Development, Richard Fahey said: “We’re delighted to help Bohemians and facilitate their move to Phoenix Park.

“It is their historical home but importantly, with the expansion of their youth development and the Academy structures, myself and John Delaney believe it is vital to support their efforts in any way possible.

“We’re continuing to look at ways we can help all SSE Airtricity League clubs around the country and it’s great to get this deal completed.”

Bohs U19s beat Irish U17 selection

Goals from Jamie Hollywood (pictured) and Cian Flynn gave the Bohs Under-19s a 2-1 win over an Irish home-based Under-17 team selection at Abbotstown on Saturday.

The team and backroom staff would also like to thank Matt Britton (www.mattbritton.ie) for their recent equipment sponsorship.

Bohs Hit Cavan Monaghan for Six!

Last Saturday saw the Under 17 squad travel to Gortakeegan for their second away game of the season. After a bright start from Bohemians, Cavan Monaghan took the lead from a free kick on 13 mins. A quick reply from Ryan Graydon saw the game level and Cian Flynn put Bohemians ahead just before the break. Cavan Monaghan started the second half strongly and pushed Bohemians hard in the first 10 mins. A quick counter attack saw Gabi Aghinita clean through with only the keeper to beat before he was taken down just outside the box. A red card for the Cavan Monaghan player followed but it was no consolation for Gabi who had to leave the field with a broken collarbone. Cian Flynn added a third from the resulting free kick which was quickly followed by a fourth for Steven Nolan. Bohemians just kept the ball as Cavan Monaghan pushed on and it was Steven Nolan again who added the fifth after a great cross from Cian Flynn. Jordan Maguire finished off a great team move from Bohemians to make it six on the day.

Bohs U17 Players Called into International Training Camp

Five U17 Bohemians players have been called up to join Tom Mohans U17 International Training Day to take place in the AUL Complex on August 19th.

Adam Doyle, Warren O Hora, Cian Flynn, Aaron Townley and Lee Rock have been invited to take part in the squad after their great start to the first U17 LOI season.

In other good news for the U17s, Yassine En Neyah, has been called up to the U16s international squad after his Player of the tournament performance in the Milk Cup.

Congratulations to all players from everyone at the club.
