Please note that the DDSL/FAI Futsal tournament will take place again in 2018
To All:

Please note that the DDSL/FAI Futsal tournament will take place again in 2018 at the National Campus in Abbotstown. Last year was our first season playing Futsal & it proved to be a great success. This season we will be catering for U8’s (Born 2010) ; U9’s (Born 2009); & U10’s (2008). There will be up to 200 teams participating & they will play both Saturday & Sunday. As a result of the increase in the number of teams, some games will be played on the Outdoor Pitches with the majority of games been played in the Indoor Arena. Teams will be rotated between the Indoor & Outdoor facilities.

DDSL Calendar for Season 2018

Season will start the 1st week-end in February 2018 for 11 aside teams – a youth league will be introduced to replace the old under 17s & 18s league.

An Interim league for the under 18s that finished this year Nov 2017 will be available - (start end Jan 2018 – finishing end May 2018) allowing them to join teams at under 19 level from August 2018(a minimum of 10 clubs required to form this league)

Please complete the Survey Form for the end of season November 2017 for U8’s to U11’s.

As you are aware, these Survey Forms are very important as they will determine where your team is placed next season. Therefore it is important for all teams/managers to complete the survey form so teams can be allocated to the correct Division/Standard for next season 2018.

Please return the surveys to me at

You can download the form in the 'Downloads' section or follow the link below.

Sad passing of James"Maxi"McCann

The DDSL offer our deepest sympathies and condolences to the family of the late James” Maxie” McCann who passed away earlier this week.

The league has learned of the recent sad passing of James "Maxie" McCann, father of Ray McCann, a stalwart of schoolboy game in Dublin. Maxie as he was known to all those in the football family joined the Hoops in 1954 and played as a winger. He made his debut against the auld enemy Bohemians FC on April 10th resulting in a 2-0 for the Hoops, having signed the previous week. On his second senior appearance for the Green and White Hoops – he scored a hat trick. He played in a European competition for the Milltown club, famously scoring in a 3-2 defeat for Rovers against Manchester United in a 1957 European Cup Preliminary Round tie at Old Trafford.
