Blue Demons Juveniles celebrated another excellent juvenile season at our awards night held in The Planet, Blackpool last Friday night. It was a massive success with over 150 boys and girls attending the prize giving with their parents. There was also a large turnout from our coaches and senior members of our club. All our juvenile members warmed up for the award presentation by playing ten pin bowling and pool for two hours and our younger members played in the Cosmos Play Center. The awards kicked off with speeches from MC for the night & Juvenile Treasurer Barry Deasy and Club Chairman Peter-James Coughlan The large number of academy players in both the boys and girls section were firstly presentated with medals as well our U10 boys. The MVP and MIP (All Listed below) at each grade from U11-U16 were then awarded their trophies by Superleague Coach Colin O’Reilly and Super league players Shane Coughlan & Niall O’Reilly.
Dylan Brickley is recognised as one of the most talented and committed point guards in Ireland and he was awarded the highly prestigious John O’Brien Award by Mr Finbarr O’Brien & Club President Mr John Coughlan. We also made a presentation to Blake Murphy & Derek Emelifeonwu for making the Irish U15 team and wish them continued success as they train over the summer months.
The night ended on a high as a disco was held for all the juveniles.
As we close another season on behalf of the club I would like to thank all committee members, Coaches, Volunteers, Andriy for maintaing our superb website, Parents and anybody who helped out in any way during the 2013/2014 season. Enjoy the break and we will see you all again in August.
