MGL Senior League

Dear Club Secretary

Re. Senior Women’s Winter Football

Just to bring you up to date in relation to the MGL running winter football for senior women. We believe this is a natural progression to get involved in senior football due to the fact no WFAI league has been involved in senior football for the past 3-4 years.

We applied to the WFAI to run senior women’s winter football and we were granted permission. We were under the impression we were the only league running winter football as no league has been involved in senior women’s football for the past 3-4 years. We believe the DWSL only recently applied to get involved in winter football and the only reason they are doing that is because the MGL want to run a league.

We agreed to meet in Abbotstown on Saturday and representing the WFAI was Mr. Sean Brody and Ms. Clare Conlon, representing the MGL was myself Tony Gains and Ms. Yvonne Cooper and representing the DWSL was Mr. Mal O’Reilly. We agreed to attend the meeting in order to progress women’s football as there has been a lack of it over a number of years.

We cannot understand why the WFAI would give permission to the DWSL as we believe there is not enough teams for 2 leagues to have a reasonable competitive winter league. The representative from WFAI stated that Dublin City is a big area and is well capable of sustaining 2 leagues. We pointed out to the WFAI officials that they are the regulators of women’s football in Ireland and for the life of me I can’t understand their decision for 2 leagues to compete. This will do nothing for women’s football and the impression we get from the WFAI is there seems to be some form of allegiance to the DWSL and there is no benefit whatsoever to allow 2 leagues to chase the same teams

The MGL are adamant that we in good faith sought permission to run senior women’s winter football from the WFAI and received permission from them and they should now inform the DWSL that is will not sustain 2 leagues. If this is the case we will offer senior women’s winter football from the end of October and I attach details of our programme and we hope you will join the MGL as we believe we have the professionalism and a very good package to offer all clubs in the greater Dublin and surrounding area.

Finally we believe the decision of the WFAI is not the correct decision in order to develop senior winter football in the greater Dublin area and if that is the case we will also offer summer football at all ages for next season.

We look forward to you joining the MGL for senior women’s winter football for 2015/2016 season.

Yours in sport

Tony Gains

Senior Section

Metropolitan Girls League set to launch Senior Section for Dublin and Leinster

(Article from Striker 20/1/15 by Ger Brady)

The Platform for the next Stephanie Roche to shine through will be broadened soon for girls and women playing football in Ireland as the Metropolitan Girls League is set to launch Senior Section for Dublin and Leinster.

The MGL, which currently caters for thousends of girls playing football every Sunday, will ofically launch the league at the end of January with the season kicking off in early May – playing right through the summer.

NDSL and MGL CEO Tony Gains is delighted the league is taking the next step forward. “We are currently one of the biggest girl’s league in the country with over 150 teams in our league and can boast we have over 40 capped players on international squads from Under 15′s upwards”

“When we came into girl’s football the structures were not here and as of today we have a very good committee within the Metropolitan Girls League who run teh women’s division and we believe we are well capable of running and organising senior football for women during the Summer”

The hope too is that the league will have its own Academy and will be somewhat of a career path for players to possibly go and play for a club in England or the FAI Women’s National League.

Sponsors DB Sportstours and Umbro are also on board with some top prizes for league winners on the agenda – such as an all-expenses paid trip for the Premier Division winners to go and play in Europe.

So at a time when women’s football is been been talked about for all the right reasons, more good news looks to be on the way very soon

It’s an excellent time of development for the girls game with numbers participating on the increase annually and anyone wanting further information can contact the MGL Office at 01-848880201-8488802
