Bohemian FC is today delighted to announce a new strategic partnership with St Kevin’s FC.

The partnership will cover our U13 and U14s League of Ireland boys academy teams and establish an in-depth shared strategic football oversight group that will ensure comprehensive player and coach development in Ireland’s best footballing facilities and environment.

The partnership provides a proven pathway for boys to develop from U13s level all the way to senior League of Ireland Football at Bohemian FC.

It will harness the combined depth of potential at both clubs and enhance our shared footballing communities across Dublin City.

In tandem, Bohemian FC will continue to strengthen and develop both our core youth teams and community-based football structures for hundreds of boys and girls from across the city, while simultaneously expanding our club affiliate model with like-minded Dublin clubs.

Bohemian FC Director of Football Pat Fenlon said: “This new agreement builds upon a long-standing relationship between Bohs and St Kevin’s, and will serve the ambitions and needs of both clubs well.

“St Kevin’s have a proven track record of developing young talent as Bohs fans will know from the quality players that came to the club over the past number of years from Kevin’s.

“We want the very best of players to come through that academy system, and there have been huge strides within our own youth structures at Bohemians as well to ensure that there are now several avenues available for players, both boys and girls.

“The addition of Ray Scully as Small Sided Games Coordinator last year has built on and complemented the work done by the Youth Committee and existing coaching structures at the club, and I feel that their efforts will really bear fruit in the coming seasons, with talented boys and girls coming through the system.

“As well as bringing through players from St Kevin’s and our own club structures, we will also continue to work closely with our affiliate clubs, so that the best young players across the city have a clear route to progress to academy level football.

“The future pathway through our academy to the first teams, both men’s and women’s, will be greatly enhanced by our plans to further develop the already excellent facilities at the Oscar Traynor Centre.

“These plans will be communicated to the membership of Bohemian FC in the coming months before being made public, but our aim is to ensure we have the very best academy facilities in Irish football.”
