The WU19s POTM goes to Hazel Donegan. What a month it was for Hazel, not only in the WU19s league but also on the international stage.

Hazel scored in all 3 U19 games, scoring 9 goals in total, including 6 goals in one game.

Not content with dominating in the U19s league Hazel made her senior debut for the club in the All-Ireland Cup against Sligo Rovers.

Hazel wasn’t finished there, and to top off her month, Hazel scored on her Ireland Under 19s debut in their win over Croatia in the European qualification campaign.

Men’s U20’s – Brendan Lauder

It was very tough for the management to pick someone out as team performances have been very good, could have been any of 4 or 5 different players.

Brendan, who plays centre back, has great anticipation and is good on the ball. He is just 19 years old and is from North Carolina.
