Juvenile Player Profiles

Each week we will profile our young stars and these will be available to view on the club website and Face Book page.

This week we look at a set of twins currently strutting their stuff for the U13 team, an U12 who is earning a reputation in the club as a hardy no nonsense defender and a young U11 who stars in Hurling and Football for the club.

U13:

James and Derek Royal: Recent recruits to the club, these twins have settled in to the club easily and their skills and positive attitude are a welcome addition to the Whites Cross Family.
James is a tough and skilful player who is equally at home in defence or attack while brother Derek is handful for defenders and a danger man for the opposition anywhere in the full forward line.

U12:

Ronan Quain is not just a well known player in the Whites Cross Juvenile club but many members of the adult teams talk of the tough tackling centre back in positive terms. A quiet man off the field, once the ball is thrown in there are few things that get passed Ronan who drives the team forward and its not unusual to see Ronan knock over a point or two in both codes from the number 6 jersey.

U11:

Jack Stuart is the small lad with the big skills. A combination of speed and trickery Jack has been a vital part of the Whites Cross U11 & 12 team in the past year. A stylish footballer, Jack has easily transferred his skills to the Hurling field and has a great knack of finding the net in both Hurling and Football.
