This week is set to be one of the biggest in the history of the Shelbourne women’s and girls’ sections with a total of nine trophies on the line.
On Wednesday (May 11th) Shels Ladies play host to Wexford Youths in Tolka Park (kick off: 7pm). With Wexford currently top of the league on 29 points, Shels need to win to tie Youths’ points tally and take the league campaign to a playoff.
Following that the Reds take on UCD Waves at Richmond Park on Sunday (kick off: 3pm) in the League Cup final, meaning that there is a potential double on the line for our Women’s National League team.
Also on the trail of success are a number of the underage girls teams. This Sunday three underage teams play in league cup finals before a further four take to the pitch for cup finals a week later.
This all means that, over the next fortnight, Shelbourne Ladies could win leagues and cups at every age from under-10s to Women’s National League.
A football club that encompasses all ages and gender is something that we at the 1895 Trust strive towards and we take great pride in the fact that Shels are ahead of so many other Irish clubs when it comes to female teams.
With that in mind we call on as many Shels fans as possible to get down to the games on Wednesday, Sunday or the following week to hopefully see yet more history being made in the famous red jersey.
