Thursday, 26 July, 2012

BALLYCLARE Colts have announced their merger with Ballyclare Comrades as the youth side becomes the official feeder-club for the Dixon Park outfit.
Ballyclare Colts club chairman Tom Wilson said: "It is with great pleasure 'Ballyclare Colts' are delighted to announce that they have now officially become a feeder club for Irish League side 'Ballyclare Comrades'.
This is something that has been talked about and speculated on for some time now throughout the town, so to finally get the deal done is fantastic for both parties.
“With local man Eddie Hill at the Comrades helm and indeed having a son 'Taylor' currently playing for the Colts, Eddie is only too aware of the talent emerging through the Colts ranks at the moment and will not be too long before 'Ballyclare Comrades' will be reaping the benefits. The future looks bright.
“The Comrades committee under the dedicated and extremely hard working chairman Trevor McCann, have kindly permitted the use of home ground Dixon Park for Colts Academy training on Saturday mornings from 10.00 until 11.30am. All boys and girls are welcome from the age of six up to ten.
Colts have teams competing at all ages from U11's through to U17's in the Belfast And East Antrim league and are heavily involved in developing all the talent who come to play."
Birth years for next season's teams are, U-11's born 2002, U-12's born 2001, U-13's born 2000, U-14's born 1999, U15's born 1998, U16's born 1997 and U17's born 1996.
