Bowers, Nolan scoop top monthly awards

The top player and manager awards for March and April were announced in the Keadeen Hotel, Newbridge, last week.

The top player award went to Eleson United's prolific goal scorer Ciaran Bowers. Eleson have a 100pc record in the Ace Awards Division 2 since the beginning of the season, due in no small part to Ciaran's efforts.

New Ballycane Celtic manager Brian Nolan has pushed his side to second place in the CR Wynne Feeds Senior Division.

The Naas-based side are the only unbeaten team in the top tier and are real contenders for the title, having worked their way from the Youths Division over the past 10 years or so Well done to all.

Red card means automatic one-game suspension

All clubs are reminded that players who are sent off must serve an automatic one-game ban in their next competitive game.

In an effort to ensure that this rule is adhered to we intend to circulate the results of the league's weekly disciplinary hearing to each club secretary by email every Friday.

The league is also carrying out spot checks on match cards each week to ensure that the players listed are properly registered.

We would request the co-operation of all clubs in respect of these matters.


Spot checks will be carried out each week on match cards against filed Registration Forms. As in previous seasons players may be required to sign a Signature Check List prior to kick off at selected games. It is mandatory that all players on your squad sign this form when requested to do so by a Match Official

All players must be registered not later than Friday in order to be eligible to play on Sunday next. Registrations, accompanied by the relevant fee should be sent to Mr Tom Stanley, Honorary Registrar KDFL, Apt 2 Willow Square, Primrose Gate, Hazelhatch Rd. Celbridge, Co Kildare. Clubs who do not register their players in accordance with rule and submit proof that they hold a valid Public Liability Policy will forfeit their fixtures

Free weekends will be granted only in exceptional circumstances and must be applied for ten days in advance. The application may be by email or in writing (not by text).
