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.

Sanctioning Of Friendly Games
07/08/2019

In relation to friendly matches, which are a major feature of pre-season preparations at this time of year, clubs are reminded of FAI Rules of the Association, Part C), Rule 34.3, which requires that these games be sanctioned.

Part C), Rule 34.3 reads as follows: “Domestic friendly matches, including but not limited to tournaments and trial matches, must be sanctioned by the League of the hosting team”.

The full FAI Rules can be viewed via the following link:

www.fai.ie/domestic/governance/fai-rule-book

The home team should take responsibility for obtaining sanction for a friendly game and, in the case of a UCFL team, this involves contacting the UCFL Hon Sec, Paraic Treanor (paraic.treanor@ucfl.ie), as far in advance as possible, requesting the UCFL’s sanction for the fixture.
