Dundalk Youths

Postby Ezeikial » Sun May 13, 2018 11:52 am

With Gavin Smith and Pablo Cavalcante starting against Bohs, Karl Fitzsimons coming on in the first half, and Jack O'Keeffe on the bench, a number of the u-19's have obviously been impressing Stephen Kenny.

It's good to see the club website putting a focus on the Pablo Cavalcante, who had a very promising senior debut:

CAVALCANTE: THE NEXT STEP
Dundalk FC U19 player, Pablo Cavalcante, impressed on his first start for the Lilywhites since joining from Glentoran FC at the start of the season.

“I think that our boys started the game very strongly,” said the Brazillian. “We got the early goal which set the tempo for the rest of the game. I think overall we played very well and scored some great goals to get us through to the semi-final

Any additional information on ex Glenmuir player Jesse Nwabueze who is reported to have signed with Crystal Palace:

Was he in the Dundalk u-15's or most recently with Glenmuir?

How can Crystal Palace sign a 14 year old player from Ireland? I though 16 years was the starting point?

Former Glenmuir United and Dundalk Schoolboys League prodigy Jesse Nwabueze has signed a youth contract with English Premier League side Crystal Palace.

Nwabueze, who starred for the Schoolboys League team in last year's Kennedy Cup, becomes the second local player to be snapped up by a cross-water outfit in recent days, following Kian Leavy's signing by Reading.

The 14-year-old attacker has penned a two-year deal with the Eagles, despite having impressed on trial with both Arsenal and Chelsea.

He is believed to have been recommended to Palace by one of their English-based talent spotters, Frederick Ajayi, who had extensively scouted him.

a) The player’s parents move to the country in which the new club is located for reasons not linked to football.

b) The transfer takes place within the EU or EEA and the player is aged 16 to 18, in which case the new club must fulfil the following minimum obligations:

(i) It shall provide the footballer with an adequate football education and/or training in line with the highest national standards.
(ii) It shall guarantee the player an academic/school/vocational education/training in addition to his football education and/or training, which will allow the player to pursue a career other than football should he cease playing professional football.
(iii) It shall make all necessary arrangements to ensure that the player is looked after in the best possible way (optimum living standards with host family or in club accommodation, appointment of a mentor at the club, etc.).
(vi) It shall, on registration of such a player, provide the relevant association with proof that it is complying with the aforementioned obligations.

At 14 though? It would be very convenient that the parents move for non football related reasons. Maybe clubs can set families up with work etc and proving it doesnt have to do with football is hard. EU guidelines include the following:-

FIFA has accepted two further exceptions. First where
the players concerned could establish without any doubt that the reason for the relocation
to another country was related to their studies, and not to their activities as football
players. Second, in cases in which the national association of origin and the new
club of the players concerned have signed an agreement within the scope of a development
programme for young players under strict conditions.
