Keeva Keenan

The MGL would like to congratulate Keeva Keenan who plays for Shelbourne Under 18s on her nomination for FAI Women’s Under 17s Player of the Year.

Keeva has played in the MGL for the last number of years for WFTA before her move to Shelbourne last summer. Keeva played on the MGL Under 16s Academy side who won the Jeremy Dee cup at last seasons Gaynor Cup as well as been part of the Ireland Under 17s squad who came so close to qualifying for the UEFA Championship last December in England

Credit must go to Tommy, Sharon and the rest of the WFTA Coaches as well as to Keith, Robbie, Derek, Jay and the Shelbourne coaches who along side Keeva family have made her the player and person that she is

Keeva is up against Megan Connolly (College Corinthians, Cork) and Savannah McCarthy (Listowel Celtic, Kerry) both of whom are outstanding players with Savannah captaining the Ireland Under 17s squad and Megan scoring 9 goals in 12 UEFA Under 17s Qualifiers in last 2 seasons as well as been the Vice Captain to Savannah.

The Award will be presented on March 2nd and will be live on RTE 2

Well done to all 3 players and best of luck


Leinster Finals

All 4 LWFC Underage Cups were won by MGL Clubs last Saturday in Portlaoise as all 6 cups headed back up the M7 to Dublin (with 1 continuing into Wicklow)

In the Under 12s Final (Game of the day to watch), Enniskerry overcame a Cabinteely side (who contained only 1 player who is Under 12 with the rest been Under 11s) in the last minute of Extra Time for a 2-1 win.

In the 14s final it was Shelbourne who took the honours with a 2-0 win over Cabinteely. Izzy F scoring both goals, the 1st direct from the corner.

In the Under 16s Final, Peamount Utd beat Evergreen 3-0 while in the 18s Final Peamount Utd won 4-2 against a very good Newtown Juniors to complete a double

Congratulations also goes to Shelbourne FC who overcame Tramore FC (The Holders) in the Women’s Cup final with 2 cracking goals from Megan L helping them to a 5-1 win and St Catherine’s beat Bridge Utd with a goal from MGL Academy Coach Lisa Nolan helping them to a high scoring victory in the Women’s Shield Final

Under 15s FAIS – Bob Docherty Cup 2013

THE REPUBLIC OF IRELAND U15 SCHOOLS squad kicked off their Bob Docherty campaign against Wales at Shaws Bridge, Belfast yesterday afternoon (Monday 1st April) with a 4-0 win, including a goal from Eleanor Ryan Doyle and followed that up with a 1-1 draw against England this afternoon (Tuesday 2nd April)

Republic of Ireland Manager Richelle O’Neill (Coláiste Choilm, Tullamore) is enjoying her third year with the squad and is well prepared for the challenges that face her. The squad will see two notable recruitments making a return namely Roma McLaughlin (Moville Community College) and Eleanor Ryan Doyle (St. Joseph’s College, Lucan / Peamount Utd)

Unfortunately for O’Neill the squad will be without the services of Courtney Higgins (Colaiste Dhulaigh School, Coolock / Shelbourne) as she recovers from a shoulder injury. This means a late call up for Nimmy Cheamaou (Peamount Utd) who will relish the opportunity of representing her country.

Wales will prove difficult opponents and should be a good test for O’Neill’s crew as they look to upset the odds in Belfast with the North going for an historic three in a row this season.
