Schoolboy club seek league place

Share/Save

Total Dublin schoolboy side St. Kevin's Boys are considering applying for a place for a senior side in the League of Ireland.   It's a response to being denied a place in the new national under-17 league.  They were told that there were too many Dublin sides already.

Hamilton Academicals are the only professional British football club to have originated from a school team.  Wick Academy in the Highland League had an indirect and unofficial connection with the school of the same name.
