Jackdaws set for bright year

FOUR youngsters from Burlington Jackdaws are hoping to continue with their fine progress in 2010.

Harry Connelly, Louis Beckett and Callum Cobden have all been training weekly with Hull City and Lily Mae Andrew meets up with the East Riding Girls squad.

Jackdaws' coach Chris Kirkham put the players' names forward after their strong performances in the Hull League and has been liaising with Kris Blakeston from Hull City Football Club and Paul Kay from East Riding Girls

Kirkham said: " Louis is tremendous and been with us since he was four.

"He has scored 37 goals already for the Under 7s which is some achievement on its own.

"Harry is a true captain and leader and has an excellent eye for a pass and has also scored lots of goals from midfield

"Callum has the attributes to go all the way.

"I liken him in many ways to a Wayne Rooney figure, as he works so hard for his team.

"He is a joy to coach and his passion and desire for the Jackdaws is something that opposition coaches notice.

"Lily continues to improve with her passing game.

"As much as Lily is felt as my own, she has simply done this herself with effort and determination to succeed."

Blakeston said: "I would like to congratulate the Burlington Jackdaws on their achievements in 2009 and the players we have seen.

"Well done to all involved and I wish them all the best for the rest of the season.

"I hope they all continue to work hard and develop through the quality coaching they receive from the Chris and his coaching team."

Kay said East Riding Girls were looking to recruit players from the Bridlington area to join Lily in next year's Under 10 squad.

He added: "Hull College Girls Centre of Excellence aims to provide high standards of football for talented female players.

"One of those is Lily who is the youngest player in our Under 10s and is performing well alongside other players from Hull and the East Riding and tasting her ability playing games against the likes of Manchester United, Leeds United and Newcastle United."

The Burlington Jackdaws continue to develop teams and have already begun recruiting for a new Under 7s side for season 2010-11.
