From this group 2 players have re-signed from being part of the U17s last season (Jack & Michael) all who have gained valuable National League experience over the past few seasons with the club.

In addition the U17s are benefiting from the Harps Academy squads at underage level, in particular the U16's. Kevin McHugh, Head of the Academy, also noted the significance of the academy squads to facilitate developing players into national league, "We have also 4 players from our U16 Academy squad that have made the National League squads for 2020 (announced shortly), this for me is a huge success for the Academy and makes everything we are doing worthwhile and huge credit to Ben and Lee in the U16 setup."

"These boys got knocked back last year and some for the past 2 years for selection for national league and decided not to use it as an excuse and throw the towel in, but rather a motivation to come back stronger in all aspects of their game, so huge credit to them and their parents for keeping things positive”

The U17's Kick their season off this weekend when they face Longford Town in a home game played at the New Camp Complex (Curragh Athletic), Killygordon.
