All of the Northend United Youth FC teams took a well earned break this weekend over the Easter holiday period but the Lisburn League teams are back in action this Saturday.

The U11s, U12s, U13s, U14s, U16s and U17s are looking forward to the League run-in. This is followed up by a series of midweek matches over the next few weeks.

The Club’s younger teams also get back to action this weekend with the resumption of the North West and Coleraine District League and the U9s, U10s and U12s Youth teams will be looking for a few good results in the run-in to the end of their season.

With the Club fielding no less than seven teams at the Irish FA organised U8 and U9 small sided games at the Showgrounds, they are all looking forward to getting back into action on Friday 1st April for the U8s and Saturday 2nd April for the U9s

SPONSORSHIP

The Club would like to extend their thanks to local companies Glenview Contracts and North Coast Web Design who sponsored new playing kits for both of this season’s U10 teams.

LARNE SOCCER SEVENS

Northend United Youth had no less than eight teams playing in the Larne Soccer Sevens competition on Easter Monday, ranging in age from 2008s up to and including the 2002s, reflecting the tremendous growth in the younger teams at Northend.
