Niall Ewen moves to CNOC

Niall_YouthChamps.JPGA big loss to AJAX, after many successful seasons as a junior, Niall's move to CNOC opens up a big opportunity for him as he heads for the Senior ranks.
With a big bunch of competitive runners in the same phase, the internal competition alone will test Niall and ensure he gets to make the most of his undoubted talent and personality.

It's a decision that signals he is looking to do the things it takes to move on.   The orienteering scene in Ireland is unusual in looking less than favourably on a move of this kind, but as he lines up to run with his CNOC team mates he has one advantage, he has already wielded the knife to cut ties that might hold him back.

With a  domestic season behind him that was frustrated with injury, he is playing catch up and the move to CNOC ties in well with a fresh return to the cycle of competition, training and searching for the next percentage improvement.

His old clubmates wish him well and who knows, as the wheel turns, in years to come there may be a slot in AJAX that has his name on it.
