We have been crunching the numbers and looking at the players who have played on our junior teams that have gone on to make appearances for our League of Ireland senior team and we have found some interesting stats!

Cabinteely Youth Players

  • A Cabinteely youth player has started in every SSE Airtricity League game, FAI Cup game and EA Sports Cup game that we have played.
  • The only competitive tie that we have played that did not feature a Cabo youth player in the starting 11 was this seasons Leinster Senior Cup tie against Bluebell United but there was 3 Cabo youth players on the bench that night.
  • On average 2 of our starting 11 have played for our junior teams.
  • On average 5 players of our match day squad have played on our junior teams.
  • Our player with the all time most appearances is a former youth player and current captain, Kevin Knight. Kevin has featured in 32 of our 40 competitive games since joining the League of Ireland.
  • The highest number of Cabinteely youth players in an 18 man match day squad was 9, against Finn Harps at home.

With just under 60 Cabinteely F.C. teams feeding into our League of Ireland team, we can’t wait to see these numbers increase as the years go by.
