Tipperary schoolgirls soccer star Aoibheann Clancy helped  the Irish u15 Schools Squad retain the John Read Trophy at the weekend. 

The Ireland u15  squad travelled to Stafford in England on Saturday last to play the home team in the annual competiton which they won last year 2-1 in Dublin.  

Aoibheann started and played the full game and was pivotal for Ireland in midfield. 

She was also named Vice Captain which is a great honour. 

This adds to an already lengthy list of achievements for   Tipperary Town's Aoibheann this year as she has also been capped with the U16 Irish squad that travelled to play against Chelsea last month. 

Schoolwise Aoibheann is part of the history making Presentation School Thurles who have won a Munster Senior title in Camogie, Football and Soccer. 

Presentation then went on to win the All Ireland Senior Title in the Soccer with Aoibheann scoring in the final and picking up the player of the game accolade. 

At regional level Aoibheann along with Emer McCarty and Robin Carey represented the u15 Munster Squad that took part in the u15 inter provincials a few months back. 

At league level Aoibheann is an instrumental player in both her club Tipperary Town Ladies FC and with the TSSDL U16 Emerging Talent Squad. 

With all that said about her achievements it's a credit to Aoibheann for how much effort and commitment she puts into everything she does and her attitude both on and off the field is top class.
