UCD AFC named Varsity Team of the Year

The UCD AUC Sports awards took place last night, and we were awarded the title of Varsity Team of the Year for our outstanding success during the 2017/18 college year, claiming both the Collingwood Cup and the Colleges and Universities League titles. UCD 2018 Varsity Team of the Year

This year saw us claim the Collingwood Cup with a dramatic 2-1 victory over Queens University Belfast in the final. Daire O'Connor grabbed the all important winner on the day with a stunning strike from outside the box in the last minute to clinch the title as the game looked to be heading for extra time and potentially penalties. 

We also claimed the Colleges and Universities League title after a narrow 1-0 victory over UCC in the final which was played in Whitehall. This time however it was Jason McClelland's turn to grab the headlines as his solo effort mid way through the first half was enough to bring the title back to Belfield!

Gary O'Neill, our club captain was on hand to collect the trophy on behalf of the club at the awards ceremony!
