Fan Questions

What Brought you to Uni-Mount? 

Coach Altan Ramadan has been coaching me since the age of 9 and has always been there for the development of my football so when he proposed his idea and the clubs future I was really on board with it and couldn’t say no to coming. 

​​​​​What do you like about the club? 

What I like about the club is you have coaches that care about your development, you’re not just a number you’re not just a statistic. They treat you like an individual that brings something to the team and they help you to improve and develop so you can bring even more to the team.

Whats your goals for the 2024 season? My goals for 2024 is promotion into the division above and to lead the first team in goals/ assists until I leave to go on trial again hopefully in the later stages / end of the season here, but also be a leader on and off the pitch and set the standards in trainings and games.

What would you say to someone who might be interested in joining the club?

Those that want to come to the club please do, we welcome you with open arms. It’s a great environment to develop your football and really take it to another level in terms of ability and game intelligence. Above all we have a lovely family environment that looks after one another.
