2017 World University Games Soccer Squads

The 2017 World University Games are taking place in Taipei this August and UCC is very proud to have a huge representation in the men’s and ladies soccer squads. There are four players selected to the Irish Men’s Soccer squad: Ben McAuliffe, Sean O’Mahony, Sean McLoughlin and Shane Daly-Butz. All four players were instrumental in UCC Soccer’s success this year which included winning the Collingwood Cup and the Munster Senior League. The head coach of the Irish Men’s Team is UCC’s Soccer Development Officer Greg Yelverton.

There are also three players selected for the Irish Ladies Soccer squad: Eve Badana, Ciara McNamara and Katie McCarthy. UCC Ladies Soccer had a hugely successful year, winning the WSCAI Intervarsity Plate as well as reaching the Cup and Plate Final of the Futsal Intervarsity Tournament.

Both teams play their first matches on the 18th August with kick-off times at 9:00 and 12:30 (Irish Time) for the ladies and men’s teams respectively. Best of luck to all players involved!
