Membership of NTAFC for the coming 2019/2020 season is now open. Membership runs from August 1 through to July 31. As an amateur volunteer based football club, we’ve committed to meeting the repayments on the clubhouse loan in excess of €250,000, bringing the total investment to date of €1.2m in Derryleigh Park. We see this as an investment in our local youth and their future as well as being a valuable resource for our community. Everyone’s support and patronage of the club, helps make our vision a reality.
This coming season, we will have upwards on 450 players playing on over 30 teams from Nippers to the Junior A team. Running a club of this size is a very costly business both on and off the pitch and the membership fee is an integral part of our income.

The very best of luck to our players, Aaron Coleman, who’s on the main LDSL Kennedy Cup squad and to Mark Forde, who’s on standby for the Kennedy Cup competition that starts next Tuesday, June 11 in U.L. The prestigious U14 schoolboy tournament features the elite players from all 32 of the SFAI leagues. Each of the 32 Leagues enters a squad of twenty players to compete over an entire week with additional competitions for those teams which do not progress to the latter stages of the Kennedy Cup itself.
Limerick District Schoolboy League are pitted against West Cork, Roscommon and North Dublin District League in group 7. LDSL will open their campaign against Roscommon on Tuesday June 11th (pitch 4) at 4pm. On Wednesday, it is an earlier start as the District League face West Cork at 10.30am (pitch 5) which is situated at the new all weather complex. Later that day, the final group game sees Limerick face North Dublin District League at 4pm (pitch 7).
Just some of the players to have participated in the tournament included Roy Keane, Damien Duff & John O’Shea. You can keep right up to date on all Kennedy Cup news on the official competition website
