Future is bright for Wexford Celtic

Wexford Celtic F.C. entered into the McDonalds Future Football Programme three years ago with substantial support from the McDonalds Wexford store.
Over the course of the past three years all the younger players in the football club have benefited from their involvement in the various fun days, regional finals and national finals held yearly, with the club reaching the national finals in Dublin each year.
The club coaches had the benefit of being sponsored by McDonalds to complete various F.A.I. coaching courses which has resulted in a higher standard of coaching throughout Wexford Celtic F.C.
The format of the various fun days and finals was the same as that rolled out in the F.A.I. Player Development Plan which was introduced this season, with the club being very familiar with the changes as a result.
As part of the ongoing support to Wexford Celtic F.C., McDonalds Wexford sponsored a set of jerseys for the Under-11 schoolboys squad and a presentation of the jerseys was made last Saturday at the McDonalds store in Drinagh.
Wexford Celtic F.C. Chairman, Dermot Cullen, presented a framed jersey to the McDonalds Future Football Store Champion and it will be displayed at the outlet.
The next phase of the partnership will see McDonalds Wexford continuing to support Wexford Celtic F.C. as they undertake the F.A.I. Club Development Programme and attain the Club Q Mark in due course.
This will result in all future players having a much higher level of coaching and facilities at the Sinnottstown Lane-based club.
