AUL SOCCER __________________________________________________________


"We intend to establish this club as a force in schoolboys football,"

declared Castleview chairman John Deveraux at a recent reception in

the Glen Ryan to announce the club's development plans and a new

sponsorship deal.

The View, who field teams at senior, junior, youths, Under 17, and

Under 16, levels, see the further development of the underage section

as the way forward.

Castleview treasurer Pat Cummins was a happy man at the reception as

he collected the sponsorship cheque from Provident Personal Credit who

were represented by regional managers Nicky Rossiter and Ted O'Shea.

The club, founded in 1956, has received many compliments from visiting

teams for their development work at O'Sullivan Park in Knocknaheeny.

They are not finished; plans are in hand to extend the building

facilities to include a gym and committee room.



Castleview intend to expand their facilities at Knocknaheeny and to

enlarge their schoolboys section. The club, founded in 1956, was once

one of the strongest in schoolboys football but now field just one

team (under 16).

At a recent reception in the Glen Ryan, chairman Johnny Deveraux

stated they wanted to be once again a force in underage football. The

club has teams at Under 17 & 18, Junior, and Intermediate in the AUL.

In addition to the plans for the future, which also include the

provision of a gym and a committee room at O'Sullivan Park, Castleview

announced a new sponsorship deal with Provident Personal Credit.

Regional managers Nicky Rossiter and Ted O'Shea were at the reception

and said the sponsorship was in line with the company's policy of

giving support at local rather than at national level. In any event,

they made club treasurer Pat Cummins a happy man.

Barry Myers is the Castleview secretary. Gerry Myers and assistant

Jimmy Cambridge manage the first team. Mossie O'Sullivan, John

McGrath, and Christy Lynch, are in charge of the juniors. Pat

Kelleher and Rodney Power look after the 17s and 18s while four of the

senior players - Ian O'Brien, Niall Curtin, Donie Magner, and Paul

Murphy - run the Under 16s.
