Let’s Get The Kids Back Playing
22/11/2020

The Executive Football Committee Dublin & District Schoolboys’/Girls’ League are pleased to announce the launch of the “LET’S GET THE KIDS BACK PLAYING” initiative.

As we approach the Festive Season there are reasons for optimism and hope that the Country is turning the corner and we can look forward to 2021. The phrase most used by those of us involved with Schoolboy Football since matches were suspended in September is “Let’s get the Kids back playing”

This is indeed our primary goal.

Restrictions

We are hopeful that a return to Level 3 restrictions will enable ALL CHILDREN to return to playing football.

THE DDSL 2020/2021 SEASON WILL RECOMMENCE ON WEEKEND 23rd/24th JANUARY 2021. (PROVIDED RESTRICTIONS ALLOW).

A True Legend of Irish Schoolboys' Football Fran Ray - 1st Anniversary

It is hard to believe that a year has passed since the passing of a True Legend of Irish Schoolboys' Football - Fran Ray. We remember him for the great stories and his extraordinary memory of players that passed through his beloved DDSL and indeed from around the country.

Our memories are what we have of him today, and my memories of Fran will never fade.

Frans family, are missing a husband, a father and grandfather today on the 1st anniversary of his passing and they are in our thoughts and prayers today.

The DDSL are remembering him in their own way at this time, our former Honorary Secretary, forever Honorary Life President of the Dublin & District Schoolboy’s League, former SFAI Chairman, and Lifetime FAI member.

On behalf of his football family, Fran has passed on - he will never be forgotten.

Rest Easy Old Friend.

Dublin & District Schoolboys’/Girls’ League Is Proud To Partner With ISPCC Childline.
04/11/2020

The Dublin & District Schoolboys’/Girls’ League is delighted to announce it is partnering with the Childline listening service, as delivered by the ISPCC.

We are very proud to partner with an organization that provides such an important range of services to young people all over the Country.

From a DDSL perspective, this reflects our commitment to the health and wellbeing of all our underage players off the pitch as well as on it.

We understand that many young people face challenges in their lives, not least in the current environment with COVID-19. While football provides an important outlet for physical and mental wellbeing, it is critically important that our young people are aware of the services provided by Childline and are encouraged to avail of them where required.

We look forward to playing our part in highlighting these services through our League and our extensive Club network across the Greater Dublin Area and beyond.

Can your Club help highlight this partnership and the Childline Service by sharing the graphic attached on your digital platforms?
