Another step up for Jason as he continues on his football development
Everyone at Cabinteely would like to congratulate our DDSL U-15 Premier player Jason Knight on signing a three year contract with English Championship club Derby County FC, home of current Irish internationals Cyrus Christie, Richard Keogh, Jeff Hendrick and Alex Pearce.
This rounds off a great week for Jason, pictured above with Derby’s Head of Youth Recruitment Chris Perkins, who was recently named in the Ireland U-15 squad for its two games against Poland later this month.
Jason, who is the younger brother of our League of Ireland team player Kevin Knight, has been with Cabo since he was four years of age, when he enrolled in our Cubs programme.
In signing for Derby, Jason has made club history. While many former Cabo players have been signed by English clubs before, these players would have all moved on to other Irish clubs first. Jason is leading the way for hopefully many more to follow in this player pathway in Cabinteely FC!
Yet another step up in this exciting young player’s footballing career.
