Since its formation in 2006, Lisburn Distillery’s Academy has grown to boast over 130 players and 30 members of staff in its ranks.
The ‘Wee Whites’ have an Academy set-up from small sided games (Mini-Soccer), in addition to playing at most age groups in the Lisburn Junior Invitational League. The Academy teams feed into the clubs Under 20 Development Squad and First Team, currently playing in the Northern Ireland Intermediate Premier League.
There has been individual success for many players involved with the academy who represented their County at the Milk Cup and also some players representing Northern Ireland at various age groups. The Academy teams at Lisburn Distillery have also won several pieces of silverware and continue to excel locally.
All this cannot be achieved without a dedicated and committed list of staff, all of which are volunteers. The Academy is also extremely grateful to their sponsors and supporters who continue to enable these huge steps to be realised in coaching, supporting, kitting out and contributing to our large number of players participation in youth football.
