Rathnew will compete
DESPITE news appearing last week that no Rathnew AFC adult soccer team would field in this year’s WDFL campaign, it turns out that there will now be a team from the ‘Village’ club entered into the Premier 1 division which got underway properly last weekend.
WDFL Chairman Michael Conlon confirmed that a Rathnew team will participate in the Premier 1 this year but that this week’s fixtures were already completed by the time the team were entered and that they would have no fixture this weekend.
The big shock of the opening weekend was the 1-5 victory enjoyed bhy Avonmore FC over Newtown United. Report inside.
