WFTA BOUNCE BACK IN STYLE TO LIFT TITLE

After the disappointment of relegation from the Under-13B section last year, WFTA's Under-14's have bounced back in style this year by winning the Under-14C division.

It's a great achievement by the Finglas side to return to the B section at their first attempt and they did it in style with one game to spare while losing just once during the whole season.

It looks like it's onwards and upwards for the west Finglas side
