It was a week to remember for Laois student Aaron Culleton. The Graiguecullen native was given the honour of Captaining the Ireland U15 soccer team in a development game.
Ireland have a 29 man squad taking part in a four day camp this week with two, behind closed doors friendlies making up a big part of their week.
For their game with St Kevin's/Bohemians, Culleton was given the armband in what was a special moment for not only himself but his family and School, Knockbeg college also.
Aaron plays his club football with UCD under 15's and is one to watch for the future
September will see the U15 squad return to competitive action with a double header of games.
Huge congrats to Aaron Culleton who was given the honour of captaining the @FAIreland U15 soccer team in a practice game vs St. Kevin's yesterday in Dublin. Aaron also received our 1st Year Achievement Award for his excellent academic results back in May. What an all-rounder! pic.twitter.com/spA6t68GQ8— Knockbeg College (@knockbegcollege) July 22, 2021
