Limerick FC U13 manager Niall Connolly said the coaching team's ambition was to help the players develop technically.

Connolly said: “We are all about developing players technically and we are at an age where the technical development of players is vital.

“I think the season as a whole has been unbelievable, from where we started in the very first week in January until now. It just has been an incredible journey – technically, tactically and how the players have developed as human beings.

"The football they played throughout the year has been phenomenal."

Niall Connolly was joined in the Limerick FC U13 backroom team by Ciaran O'Reilly, Sean Russell and Denis Haverty.
