Premiership Academy Development League launches May 15, 2018

Warrenpoint Town will now launch our new U18 and U16 Academy Development teams to take part in these new Leagues.

Warrenpoint Town Chairman, Connaire Mc Greevy stated, ‘We welcome the announcement of the new Premier Academy Development League. These Leagues will help player development and prepare the younger footballers for senior football.

‘There is superb young talent in the Premiership at the minute. We at Warrenpoint Town have a lot of young talented players and upcoming talent that have earned their spot in the senior team. I believe that an Academy league will continue to help these younger players progress and play at the highest level of football in Northern Ireland or maybe even further afield.’

‘Scouts and media attention will focus on these new leagues which will fall under the governance of the NIFL Premiership.’

‘We aim to keep going to higher levels and I believe that it is vital to look after the youth of today for us to build for the future.’

‘We are really looking forward to playing our part in these new leagues which will become the showcase for all that is good in youth football.’
