Dundalk City completed a great victory, the first by a local team when they won their division of the Dublin girls under-14 league.

The club play out of Oriel Park and are sponsored by local company Cusken Business Equipment, and also were generously provided with track suits by local businessman Sid McLaughlin.

The team won 13 out of their 14 games, losing just a single game to their closest rivals Mount View as they prevailed in nail biting climax to the league.

They beat Mount View in their second last game, avenging an earlier defeat in the season, and won their last game as their rivals drew to emerge victors by a slender two points.

The team notched up a very impressive tally of 50 goals, chief contributors to which were Grace Murray and Roisin Farren with something like 19 and 20 goals. The defence also was immensely sound conceding just six goals in the 14 match campaign stretching from the end of May to August.

It was just the second year that the team competed in the Dublin League, and a handful of the players are still eligible to compete at the same age level next year, but the majority will step up to play under-16.

Noel Curtis was the team manager, and was assisted by Larry Brennan.



The winning squad consisted of: Donna O’Hagan, Tracy Shields, Ciara Breen, Dara Kirk, Aoife McCooey, Ruth Sharkey, Eva Mackin, Niamh Curtis, Andrea Lennon, Sandra Lynch, Laura Matthews, Roisin Farren, Nicole Lennon, Sonia McCabe, Francis Marron, Grace Murray, Lynette McGuinness, Elizabeth McDonnell, Leanne Gallagher, Dearbhla Mackin, Marie O’Hagan, Helena Mullen.
