Sligo Leitrim & D.S.L.


Posted on: 11 November, 2010


Boats on Still Blue Water

As you are aware Sunday is FAI Ford Cup Final Day with Sligo Rovers v Shamrock Rovers at the Aviva Stadium and all local domestic football is off so as to allow clubs to go and support the Bit O Red therefore I am submitting the Oscar Traynor Panel Photo's and profiles that will play the Roscommon League in the first round at Lecarrow Co Roscommon on Saturday 20th November KO 7.30pm this will be the first official representative Junior game at the Roscommon Leagues new grounds and the President of the Football Association Mr Paddy Mc Caul will officially be attending the game.

The Sligo Leitrim & D.S.L. lifted the Oscar Traynor Trophy for the one and only time in July 1985 when they defeated the Amateur League in what was one of the great finals of the competition manager on the day and who is now league Secretary Noel M Kennedy and the Captain was the indomitable David Kenny twenty five years on the task now lies with current team manager Frank Mc Garry and his assistant John Coen who took the league in their first year at the helm to last season's quarter finals and will hope to go further this year.

The panel consists of some very good experienced players with a nice touch of youth as well, Sligo Southern Best Western Super League champions City United and runners up Carbury make up a large part of the squad along with a selection of the cream from other clubs. Many of the players have in recent times also captured the Connacht Junior Cup as well as that a number of the panel have received Junior International Caps. The interest and the commitment shown by the players in training has increased significantly and places in the panel are now at a premium with every player competing at a very high level. This year sees the Kelly brothers Gareth and Christopher in the panel and when one looks at the 1985 winners we had brothers Paul and Gerard Harte can history repeat itself.

Manager Frank Mc Garry has won International Tournaments in Rimini Italy winning the Italian Youth Cup and the Yorkshire Cup in Huddersfield in England and the Kennedy Shield in Limerick with Sligo Leitrim Youth's League and on the domestic scene won the Connacht Under 16 Youth Cup with Merville since then he has expanded his managerial career taking Merville into the Junior league and in his first two seasons there has won both divisions and both Cups as well as runners up in the Champions Cup on two occasions Frank also is following his coaching career and at present he holds the UEFA B license so he Has a wealth of experience and his players will benefit greatly from his acute tactical brain.

This is a very exciting time for Soccer in Sligo the Ray Mac Sharry Park is undergoing major refurbishment with extensive modernisation of the club house and facilities coupled with this the Senior Club Sligo Rovers have completed a highly successful season winning the EA Sports Cup beating Monaghan Town in the final, a third place in the Premier league and FAI Ford Cup Finalists at Aviva Stadium so the Town and County of Sligo is buzzing at present and hopefully this Oscar Traynor team will give us even more to celebrate, The League are also indebted to their sponsors and in particular O Neill's Sports who have pulled out all the stops to insure the representative team has everything they require in gear this has been a massive boost to the league and its resources.

Attached also is the photo of the Sligo Leitrim & D.S.L. winning side of the 8th July 1985 as you can see from the panel many went on to greater things John Joe Reilly Charlie Coyne and John Skeffington were capped at International level and Skeffington went on to carve a great career in the League of Ireland. Niall Harrison is now recognised as one of the leading coaches in the Football Association Of Ireland previous to that Mattie Monaghan John Lynch and Padraig Mc Manus had also given great service in the league of Ireland and presently Maurice Monaghan is one of Paul Cooke's coaching staff with Sligo Rovers and pursuing his coaching credentials. To this day most of the players still reside in and around Sligo some are still playing football all be it at a more leisurely pace and they still hold the Tournament in high regard and rightly so, they were the first Representative League side to capture the most sought after and prestigious Trophy in the Amateur game
