Waterford Schoolboys Football League

Tramore Athletic Football Club

History:

Tramore AFC was founded in 1952. Towards the end of the 1950's Willie Quaid and Noel Hayes had their eyes firmly fixed on the future for Tramore AFC when they began to organize a series of challenge games for local Juvenilies, which were played in conjunction with home games at Graun Park.

Willie and Noel then entered a team in the Waterford League from about 1959 to 1962 when it lapsed. Throughout 1964 Willie and Noel constantly badgered the committee to re-enter a juvenile team once more but their pleas were always met with a deferral. Finally at a meeting in the Band Room, Pond Road on the 18th February 1965, the committee decided to ‘’bite the bullet’’ and enter a team in the Under 14 League for season 1965/1966. Under the capable guidance of Willie Quaid and Noel Hayes the young lads finished in a mid-table position in the League with Michael Butler emerging as the team’s leading scorer with 9 goals to his credit. The Chairman (Andy O’Beirne) was so enthusiastic about the displays of the young lads that at the AGM in 1966 he suggested that an extra Juvenile team (Under 15) be entered the following season.

This signaled the birth of Schoolboy Football at Tramore AFC. Down through the years Tramore have had an astonishing record at winning local competitions and producing players who have go on to play at higher levels and represent their country. Players of the caliber of John Frost, Alan Reynolds, and Jim Goodwin have all plied their trade at the Tramore Club. Willie Moran a Tramore man was also secretary of the Waterford Schoolboy Football League and both Chairman and Secretary of the Schoolboy’s Football Association of Ireland. Tramore have had many club members who have participated in Waterford Schoolboy League Kennedy Cup and Development squads. The benefits of the hard work of the Tramore committee are there for all to be seen at Graun Park. Tramore are a progressive club and no doubt they will have a lot more success in the years ahead.
