The U16 Boys MonU Celtic team won the ASL (Atlantic Soccer League) Championship held at the Bryan Soccer Complex in Greensboro, NC on June 22-24, 2013.

"Our team plays at the highest level of U16 soccer," said Paul Duddy, now in his 7th season as coach of the team. "We won playing some great teams from all over the East Coast. It's a credit to the boy's character and their talent that we now have a chance to compete for the national championship in Colorado."

With the win the team has qualified to play in the US Club National Cup XII which will be held July 18-21, 2013 in Aurora, CO.
