19s won 5-2 away to Longford town , Calum Bonner 2 , Dualta Honney 2 , Connor o gorman1 , Senan Mullen 3 assists , Currently 1pt behind Sligo with two games remaining , the 17s are top of the league going into the last few games, if they were to win the league then next year's Dundalk 19s will compete in Champions League qualifying which is a magnificent achievement.

No sorry to burst the bubble but you’re wrong, the 19s failed to qualify for the Elite phase so they’re essentially in the first division. They’ve had a poor season

Nope I think I'm correct, read the post again ,it's changed this year if the 17s win this year's League then next year's 19s will be in the qualifying phase.

Not a great weekend for the 17s and 19s , 17s beaten 3-1 by shels who are now level on points at the top with us with two games remaining, 19s also lost 3-2 to Derry and will finish second in their league group, on a positive note senan Mullen was selected for the Ireland u19 who are in Spain for a couple of friendlies.

In better news the WU17s drew away to Drogheda and have finished joint third in their section, but ahead of them on goal difference.

The WU19s beat Athlone 4-1 in Oriel Park. They sit a point behind Galway with 2 games left - home and away to the leaders. There is a missing result away Bohemians which may yield points, or may mean it was postponed.

The 19s season came to an end today when beaten 4-0 by Treaty utd in the shield 1/4 final , the 17s beat Waterford 2-0 yesterday with both goals scored by Marcus Strods , that result puts the 17s top of the league on goal difference from shels with one game remaining, they are away to shamrock rovers last game while Shels are away to Treaty utd , UCD also have a chance of winning the league if both Dundalk and Shels lose and they win their last game , winners of this league play in the U19 champions league qualification rounds next season.

Best of luck to our u17 today away to shamrock rovers, a win today could clinch the league and ensure Europe for next year's 19s team .

Very disappointing for our u17 who have been pipped at the post for the title, they drew 2-2 away to Rovers , Shelbourne also drew 2-2 but UCD who where in third place today have won 5-2 to take the title on goals scored.

Questions need to be asked as to why the UCD game kicked off substantially later than the other two. Enough for them to push for extra goals once the knew the other 2 results.

Yes without a doubt questions should be asked, all kickoffs should have been at the same time , UCD gained a big advantage.
