This time last year our then Under 14 DDSL Premier squad represented the club and the country in the Futuri Campioni Under 15 European Cup in Ravenna Italy where goal difference ruled them out of advancement to the knockout stages following five group games.
They return this weekend to take up the invitation again but this time expectations are set higher with a genuine chance of hopefully going a long way in this years event with a stronger squad and not being at a years disadvantage in age.
At the end of the first days play when they played three of their four group games they are in a strong position to top their group and advance to the last 16.
Three wins - the first against against a local side San Pietro en Viscoli 3-1who pre-qualified (Darragh Burns, Sandy Chhandyal(penalty) and Ruadhan Coffey scoring in a 3-1 win having come from a goal down at halftime.
The second game against a tough Belarusian side FC Minsk tested our side to the limit physically as the Eastern Europeans didn't take kindly to going behind to first half goals from Darragh Burns again and Sean McEvoy but the score reminded the same at full time 2-0.
Unbeaten Slovenian side Nogomento were the third opponents of the day in the evening game and again they had to come from a goal down to win 3-1 with goals of quality from Ebookah Favor - a brilliant free kick into the top corner to tie things up just on half time then two more in the second half - a thirty yard screamer from Jamie Farrell before Darragh Burns lobbed the keeper having been put through by a brilliant ball from Ebookah.The last group game against Maltese side San Gwnn resulted in a 1-0 win with Darragh Burns again on the scoresheet.
A magnificent hat-trick from Ebookah Favor after Sean McEvoy had opened the scoring paved the way for a 4-0 win in the last16 tie against French side Villiers FC.
Aaron Davis was the hero as he saved two of the Spartak penalties as we reached the semi final 4-3 on penalties after a tough 0-0 draw against Slovakian side Spartak Tvarna. It was a fantastic performance from the boys as they outplayed a much bigger and stronger side, Ruadhan Coffey, Darragh Burns, Ebookah Favor and Jamie Farrell scored the four penalties.
Three teams from our original group have reached the semifinals which will be played at 9-30 with the final to follow at 11.30.
The semi final against Slovenian side Nogomento was tight enough and despite having most of the possession we were a goal behind again in the 19th minute but equalised just before half time when Sean McEvoys shot from 25 yards seemed to take a deflection. Cian Warren came up with the winner with 6 minutes to go and earn a place in the final against unbeaten English side BWB03 - an elite Schools Academy side who have six players in their squad will sign for professional clubs at the end of the season - who beat Dynamo Minsk 2-1 in the other semi-final.
