Pictured above is our under 12A's who made it two wins from two in the DDSL Saturday A league when they defeated Phoenix FC 3-1 at Whitegates today. In an exciting game the lads came from a goal down to show their team spirit to emerge 3-1 victors. Josh Bishop levelled matters after the lads went a goal down and then the lads turned the screw in the second half with two deflected goals settling the game in Rovers favour.


The Metropolitan Girls League [MGL] is the largest girls league in the country. They have a structure in place to cater for community teams and also the elite players. Their motto is never to turn away any underage girls who want to play football. They operate a Northside and a Southside Academy and cater for up to 150 players in each Academy who represent their clubs at the major tournament in Limerick known as the Gaynor Cup.
