The U11 Boys and all Girls ‘Draft Divisions’are now complete & are available to view. The u8’s/u9’s/u10’s Boys re-grading are currently been processed & will be completed over the next week & once complete, we will let clubs know the ‘Re-Graded Divisions’ are available under your ‘Club’ on Sportlomo.  For all re-graded Divisions, clubs have until SUNDAY 7th Jan 2024 at 6pm to submit any requests for changes e.g. In case you are missing a team etc. For those requests, you must only contact the relevant DDSL Fixture Secretaries who will agree/disagree to any changes/additions. For the Divisions already re-graded….u11 Boys Please contact Conor Wakely & for all the Girls Divisions, please contact Zoe Poole. See attached list of DDSL Fix Sec.


Please note that any new teams must be registered as normal. This ‘Portal’ will be opened in early Jan 2024 for registration however please e-mail the relevant DDSL Fixture Secretaries with any new teams so they can be included in the Re-grading for Boys U8’s to U11’s Boys & all Girls Divisions. The fee for new teams for the 2nd half of the season will be 50% of the full fee but players must pay the Euro 30.00 upon registration.

All players playing in the DDSL must be registered & fee paid otherwise they are not permitted to play & their insurance will not be valid.


As you are aware there will be a new u7 League for Boys & Girls beginning in earlier February 2024. The new ‘Portal’ for u7’s will be available from earlier January 2024. In the meantime, all new teams must be forwarded to killian.travers.fixsec@ddsl.iefor the Boys & zoe.poole.fixsec@ddsl.ie for the Girls. There will be ‘No Fees’ for the new u7’s teams or the new players. However, the players must register on Sportlomo as this will be required for Insurance purposes.


The FAI have confirmed the ‘Re-Registration Dates’ for all DDSL Players looking to move clubs will be from the 1st Jan 2024 to the 28th Jan 2024. The procedure for the ‘Re-Registration /Transfer’ for the players is for the club where the player is due to move to …to follow the guidance below.

  • The club must e-mail registrations@ddsl.ie to confirm they are happy to accept the new player. Please include the players details i.e.NAME/DOB/MEMBERSHIP NUMBER FROM SPORTLOMO SYSTEM/CURRENT CLUB.  
  • The club must also include the players ‘Current Club’ in the e-mail to the Club Secretary so they are aware of the player leaving their club.
