Household names in local girls and women’s soccer Julie Ann Russell and Dora Gorman return home to line out against Galway WFC next Sunday at 2pm in Eamonn Deacy Park.
Senior Internationals Russell and Gorman who are both studying in Dublin play for Peamount United and will be in action when the Women’s National League returns to the Terryland venue.
Galway WFC will be pleased with the progress they have made in the league to date and after back to back wins against Cork and Rovers will have been disappointed to lose to champions Raheny last weekend after having led for nearly all the first half after Lisa Casserly put them ahead on six minutes. Raheny with six internationals in their side eventually won 4-2 with Becky Walsh adding Galway’s second goal.
Manager Nigel Keady believes that “the quality of the Raheny play was very good. Sunday showed that we were able to compete at times against a strong Raheny. Peamount are another top side peppered with international stars. We will learn from last week and the addition of the Galway girls on the Peamount side will really make it a special occasion.”
Galway WFC have issued a call for all fans to get there early next Sunday and to continue to make Deacy Park a fortress. Admission for adults is €5 and kids go free.
