Schoolboys council reverses decision and 
allows Dublin clubs back into 
National Cup
The DDSL (Dublin District Schoolboys League) clubs have been re-admitted to the SFAI National Cups after the SFAI council reversed their decision at a meeting last week.

The DDSL (Dublin District Schoolboys League) clubs have been re-admitted to the SFAI National Cups after the SFAI council reversed their decision at a meeting last week.

The move will now see the SFAI re-draw the last 32 round which will now feature four DDSL slots in each age group.

FAI chief executive John Delaney informed SFAI officers at the meeting that the national body would impose sanctions unless the DDSL teams were re-admitted following the previous meeting in Wexford before Christmas when the SFAI decided to exclude teams from the DDSL from the draw for the last 32.

The pressure from the FAI prompted the SFAI to reverse their decision and re-admit the DDSL teams to the draw.

Seven teams from the Dundalk Schoolboys League are still in the draw for the last 32 teams in the National Cups and some had arrangements in advanced stages for trips to Limerick and Cork to play their games which were due to be played at the weekend of the 1st and 2nd February but they must now wait for the outcome of the new draw for the last 32 teams.

Quay Celtic have three teams in the Under 12, 13 and 14 section and Glenmuir have also got three teams in the Under 13, 14 and 15 sections while Ardee Celtic are still in the Under 16 section
