Current Finn Harps captain Kevin McHugh has already started planning for life after his playing career by launching a brand new DONEGAL SOCCER ACADEMY.McHugh who also manages the Donegal U13 schoolboys side has created a new academy that will focus predominantly on the technical side of the game for youth players aged from 6-14.McHugh will be joined in spearheading the new academy by former Derry City teammate and current Coleraine midfielder Ruaidhri Higgins. He’ll also be assisted at the new academy by his backroom from the Donegal schoolboys side Mel O’Donnell and Andrew Wilson.McHugh is one of the best players to have ever come out of Donegal and the opportunity for young players to work with a player of his calibre on a weekly basis is fantastic.McHugh is urging parents to simply register their kids name and D.O.B. via email: DonegalSoccerAcademy@Gmail.com, to ensure we get coaching asap on the 1st night.McHugh told Donegal Daily, “It’s something that has been in the pipeline for years now, and has taken us a lot of time to decide the correct coaching strategy that we will adopt” “We have broken down the ‘basics’ of the game and will work in blocks to allow the kids ample time to pick up these essential skills ”“Our aim is to coach good technical skills within an environment that encourages kids to express their own natural talent ”The DONEGAL SOCCER ACADEMY officially gets underway next Wednesday the 22nd of April.Details regarding the times, date, cost and venue of the academy are outlined on the poster above.

A traffic accident on Interstate 5 northbound at the foot of the Interstate 5 Bridge has been cleared, but the traffic snarl will persist well into rush hour.The rollover accident occurred about 2:10 p.m. at the Jantzen Beach onramp. It apparently involved a Jeep and a tractor-trailer rig. The wreck was in the right hand lanes at the northbound onramp.Though some cars continued to get by on the left, traffic quickly backed up to the Marquam Bridge.
