       Goldmark Volunteers

On Wednesday 11th March young club coaches, Alana Burch, Ben Kinnier, Ross Kinnier and Craig Horner were awarded Goldmark Volunteer certificates by the Irish FA at a ceremony in the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Belfast.

These awards are open to all young club volunteers between the age of 16 and 24 to recognise their commitment to local sports clubs.

Academy coaching director Norman Kelly said  “These four never miss a training night, they have such great enthusiasm for coaching and are wonderful role models for the young players. We are delighted to have them with us, and look forward to seeing their further development and them eventually take control of an age group of their own. If there are any other young coaches out there who want to join us, they are all very welcome any Monday or Wednesday night at Londonderry Pk.“
