25/08/2011 - UUJ kick off their season
The UUJ Youth Team got their season under way with a draw against Colin Valley. The speedy forward Ryan McHugh marked his debut with a fine goal, scoring within 30 seconds of his first appearance in the Blue and Black stripes. Despite dominating possession for most of the game, UUJ failed to make it count and a Colin Valley counter attack led to them levelling the scores. Manager Joe Richardson still remains optimistic for the season ahead and feels there is more to come from his talented squad. JR 

24/08/2011 - UUJ stumble in the league
UUJ lost their first game of the season, going down 2-1 away from home to Wellington Rec in the League. Anto Stuart got on the score sheet again but the UUJ management will be very unhappy that the team did not come away with something from this game after they dominated proceedings, failing to capitalise on a number of goal scoring opportunities. Next up on Saturday is an away trip to Mossley FC in the 2nd round of the Steel & Sons Cup.PS

11/06/2011 - End of Season presentations and awards
Once again another season passed with the blink of an eye. For the 2010/11 season, UUJ FC enjoyed a successful year on the pitch.

The first team finished with their highest 1A league position and also enjoyed a fantastic Clarence Cup run reaching the semi-final against Ardglass. The second team consolidated their 3A league status, finishing a healthy mid-table in their first season in the reserve top flight.

First Team: Colm Maxwell underlined why he is one of the league’s best defenders by winning the player’s player of the year award, having scooped the manager’s player of the year the previous season. Sean Walsh, still relatively new to the club, showed why he has a fantastic future ahead of him at UUJ taking both Manager’s player of the year and Top Goal scorer awards. Paul Darby, the UUJ stalwart, collected Clubman of the year for all the fantastic work he puts in behind the scenes. His invaluable contribution to the club does not go un-noticed by his team mates and management.

Second Team: Michael McCluskey, UUJ II goalkeeper, grabbed with both hands the player’s player of the year award. A fantastic debut season for the young ‘keeper who surely has a bright future ahead of him.

Ferghal Brannigan received the Manager’s player of the year award in only his second season with the club. His consistent performances in defence were rewarded with the coveted trophy. Dee Magennis, captaining the side for the first time, finished top goal scorer for the second season running.

A diminutive player with an eye for goal once again reached double figures from midfield. DM
