First things first

Solitude hosted an historic occasion earlier this week when the youngest team in the Cliftonville Academy played their first ever match.

The Wee Reds from our 2018 age group took on Shankill Juniors in front of some proud parents and coaches, who toasted some eye-catching goals and the ever-developing skills on display from their stars of the future.

Our thanks are extended to Shankill for joining us for the occasion, while anyone with a son born in 2018 who would like to join the team are asked to contact Head of Youth Development Marc Smyth on 07869379515 or by emailing
