FAI ETB graduates starring in FAI Cup Final

THIS Sunday's FAI Irish Daily Mail Cup Final will see a number of graduates from the FAI ETB programme appearing on the Aviva Stadium stage.
5th Nov 2015

The FAI ETB courses, formerly FAS Courses, have contributed to the development of many talented young Irish footballers over the years.

Amongst the Cork City and Dundalk players to have graduated from the programmes are Mark McNulty, Kevin O'Brien, John Kavanagh, Darren Dennehy, Liam Miller, Colin Healy, Mark O'Sullivan and Cian Coleman in the Rebel Army camp and Chris Shields, Sean Gannon, Daryl Horgan, John Mountney, Darren Meenan and Andy Boyle in the Lilywhites squad.

ETB  Co-Ordinator Harry McCue is delighted that so many of the FAI graduates will appear on the biggest stage in the country this Sunday"The ETB/FAI courses continue to produce players of a very high calibre. The amount of players from both sides playing from ETB courses past and present on Sunday counts at over 50% and is a signification reflection on the quality of player coming through," he said.

"This is huge compliment to the highly qualified coaching staff who work very closely in developing these players. The unique combination of football and education continues to develop dedicated, talented footballers who have high ambitions of becoming professional footballers both here or overseas and hopefully continue to do so into the future. I wish them all the very best of luck in the Final."
