Inchicore side CIE Ranch have become the fourth club this season to make the move from the Athletic Union League to the Leinster Senior League. The Ranch join fellow AUL Premier B sides Hartstown Huntstown and Corduff, as well as Premier A side Ballymun Utd in making the move.
CIE Ranch issued the following statement on its Facebook Page;
“After 4 years in The Athletic Union League, CIE Ranch have taken the decision to move back to the Leinster Senior League, with our application being accepted and finalised this evening.
In our time in the AUL we moved from Senior Sunday to Premier B picking up the Mullion Cup along the way. Our Saturday lads took the 2A title this year also. The sole reason for this move is to help the club and the team try compete in the best football this country has to offer.
We would like to thank everyone at the AUL for everything these past four years especially Brendan Pigeon and Des smith along with the rest of the committee. We look forward now to the next step and the future of our football club.”
