There will be a management meeting this Thursday, 06/02/2018 in FAI HQ, National Sports Campus, Abbotstown, Dublin 15, beginning at 7.30pm. All clubs must be represented. Fines will be imposed for non-attendance.

The December/January transfer window closed yesterday (31/01/2020).

However, unattached players may continue to be signed up to the end of March.

UCFL Coaching Course – National D Licence
05/01/2019: reminder re January course

An email was sent to all clubs prior to Christmas in connection with a specialised coaching course for UCFL members leading to the award of a National D licence on successful completion. The email asked all club secretaries to inform their members of this course and to let the UCFL know how many, if any, are interested. We have had a number of replies and have been liaising with the FAI coaches who are making preparations to hold the course.

The proposal from the FAI is to hold the course over 3 days towards the end of January 2020. The course will begin on Friday evening, Jan 24 and continue over the Saturday and Sunday, Jan 25 & 26.

12/12/2019: Kildare 2-0 UCFL
UCFL exit Oscar Traynor Trophy

The UCFL are out of the 2019/20 Oscar Traynor Trophy after falling to their second loss in the competition on Wednesday night (11/12/2019), going down 0-2 to the Kildare & District League on a chilly night in Kilcullen.

Though the UCFL had chances, Kildare undoubtedly deserved their victory, hitting the woodwork on two occasions before half-time, then taking the lead through a brilliant strike from JP McDonagh on 59 minutes, before the same player sealed victory for his team with a tap-in 20 minutes later.

Kildare will now take on Kilkenny at the same venue next Sunday to determine which of these two teams advance to the knockout stages as group winners, while the UCFL are left to reflect on another frustrating night as much good play failed to yield any tangible reward.
