Following on from their great soccer season in 2014, the Portlaoise Ladies AFC team continue to shine.

Four of their players have now been selected to go forward to play for the Kildare Women’s Representative County Team. Bernie Bowe, Jenny Conroy, Mo Nerney and Danielle Keane were all selected from the Portlaoise panel and they will compete in the LFA Women’s Inter League campaign.

The ladies are due to play Kilkenny next month where Bernie Bowe, manager/player for Portlaoise Ladies AFC will hold vice captaincy.

To top off the ladies success, Colleen Rickard, one of many young girls whom shone last season, received Overall Player of the Year for Division 2 at the recent KDFL 21st Annual Presentation and Awards Night.

The girls will now be playing in the First Division and are now recruiting for new players. Pre-season starts at the end of January. See Portlaoise AFC Facebook page for more details.
