Newlands/Castle Park FC One Star Journey
26/09/2020

Congratulations to Newlands/Castlepark FC on becoming the first Club from the DDSL to achieve the FAI Club Mark One Star Award.

A fantastic achievement, well done to all.

Set up in early 2018, the FAI Club Mark has seen over 40 clubs earn the Entry Level award with almost an additional 300 clubs in the process of reaching the standard.

Six pilot clubs who previously earned the Entry Level award, moved on to the One Star Level, and are now seen as FAI Development Centres.

Newlands/Castle Park FC's journey started back in 2016 with the amalgamation of Newlands Celtic & Castle Park FC with the setup of their Schoolboys/Girls and Academy soon after. This set them on their path to the FAI Club Mark Entry Level and now their One Star Journey. You can read that incredible journey by Clicking Here

Message from The Chairman DDSL Paddy Dempsey As We Pprepare To Commence The 2020/2021 Season
10/09/2020

Dear Club Secretary:

I hope you and all involved with your clubs are safe and well during these difficult times for everyone.

As the start of the new football season is imminent, I would like to thank each and every one of you for the time and patience you have shown over the past 6 months, and for adhering to the many protocols and guidelines issued.

There are many things we once knew as normal not so long ago that have changed. These changes now present new challenges to every club. Whether your club is seen as big, small or somewhere in between, all will have new challenges to overcome to enable football to resume on Saturday 12th September 2020.

While there are many difficulties we have to overcome, the guiding principle followed by the league has and will remain until this virus is overcome, “the health and safety of everyone involved in the game of football in the DDSL”

In the best interest of our clubs, all guidelines/protocols from the HSE/NPHET & the FAI were issued by the DDSL to our clubs.

Safer Return To Play - Match Day Protocol
Grassroots Referees 02/07/2020

Referees are an integral part of football and we must ensure that we are well prepared prior to our return to play. This ‘Safer Return To Play - Match Day Protocol’ provides guidance and direction to match officials on how to manage the administration and the refereeing of games. The ‘Laws of the Game’ provide referees with all the necessary authority to deal with all on-field issues, whilst other matters should be reported to the leagues who run the competitions.

The primary aim of this protocol is to minimise risk of transmission of the COVID-19 virus to as low a level as possible. The principles of risk mitigation are identical for training and for refereeing. To view and download the full pdf document, please Click Here
