Corduff FC have issued a statement on their Facebook Page regarding their move from the AUL to the Leinster Senior League. Corduff have joined local rivals Hartstown Huntstown FC as well as Ballymun Utd in making the move.
The West Dublin club has said it aims to continue the improvement of their senior squad, as well as aim to encourage a mix of upcoming young players with a mix of experienced players for their next challenge – to break in to intermediate football.
The statement reads as follows;
“Corduff FC has taken a decision a number of months ago to move to the Leinster senior football league (LSL) in terms of our adult teams. This follows fourteen excellent years in the AUL, in which we went from Division 2A all the way to Premier ‘A’ over an 8 year period. We did so on the back of two schoolboy teams in that period. This also peaked with a showing in in the all-Ireland FAI Junior Cup semi-final in 2008.
In our move to the LSL, we aim to continue the improvement of our senior squad, as we have been doing since most of the senior players of the last decade have stopped playing football and now we aim to encourage a mix of upcoming young players with a mix of experienced players for our next challenge – to break in to intermediate football.
In the last decade, Corduff FC has consistently improved upon our schoolboy set-up to the extent that we now have a team completing schoolboy football every single year – something we could have done with in the last decade. We now have lads playing for Ireland, Sunderland, St Pats, Drogheda etc.”
