Bus Éireann Women’s National League newest members Galway FC will get their maiden campaign underway with a home tie against Wexford Youths Women’s AFC after the new campaign’s fixtures were issued.
The addition of Galway FC into the league brings the league membership up to eight clubs and according to league director, Fran Gavin, the Galway side’s introduction is proof that the Women’s National League continues to progress.
“Last season was a very competitive campaign with a tight title race and a number of clubs making progress,” said Gavin.
“That was proven by the number of young players who progressed from the league into our international squads, including Sue Ronan’s senior international side.
“The addition of Galway FC is another real positive. The Galway football community has got right behind the new club and they will be a competitive side right from the start playing out of Eamonn Deacy Park.
“The league is entering its third year and it has made gradual progress each season. We started with six clubs and now we are up to eight with the geographical spread continuing.”
