Two new clubs are set to compete in the Só Hotels Under-17 Women’s National League in 2020 after their expressions of interest were accepted by the FAI.

Shamrock Rovers FC and Carlow-Kilkenny FC both applied to enter the league after expressions of interest were sought by the association in mid-June.

The two clubs have today been informed that their applications were successful and have been invited to join the league next season.

FAI Competitions Director Fran Gavin said: “We look forward to working with Carlow-Kilkenny and Shamrock Rovers in growing women’s football within the clubs over the coming years and developing a player pathway for the growing number of female players now playing in the domestic game.”

The final composition and format of the league will be announced in due course.
