Dundalk FC News Round Up
The clock is ticking towards the start of the 2013 season! Here is the latest news from Oriel at the start of another busy week.
Stephen Kenny’s team got some more match-time under their belt on Monday night when they drew 1-1 with a Northern Ireland selection mostly comprised of players from the Irish League First Division. Kurtis Byrne (pictured above) was on the mark again as the young striker scored his sixth goal in six pre-season fixtures. The Dundalk team was: Peter Cherrie, John Sullivan, Dane Massey, Andy Boyle, Mark Rossiter, Stephen O’Donnell, Richie Towell, Keith Ward, John Dillon, Patrick Hoban and Kurtis Byrne. Substitutes introduced were Vinny Faherty, Eoghan Osborne, Darren Meenan, Stephen McDonnell, Sami Osobe and Aaron Shanahan.
A detailed run down of how the match progressed can be found on the Oriel Updates website’s twitter service.
Dundalk FC received good news today when the Club Licensing Committee were satisfied with the extra information provided and awarded a full Premier Division Licence for the 2013 season. This brings to a conclusion a process that began last August when an agreement on a transfer of ownership of Dundalk Football Club was agreed.
