The Freshers team will compete in the Leinster Senior League Saturday Major 1A Division, while it will also compete in the Harding Cup (Intervarsities Competition) and the annual colours match against Trinity College.

UCD has a long history on successfully developing young players, and our success can be seen throughout the League of Ireland today! Many players across the League of Ireland and beyond have worn the UCD Shirt in recent years including, Robbie Benson, David McMillan and Jamie McGrath (all Dundalk FC), Greg Bolger (Cork City), Ronan Finn (Shamrock Rovers), Andy Boyle (Preston North End), Dylan Watts (Leicester City) to name a few. Various other players have firmly established themselves throughout our teams as current first team players, or in our LSL Senior 1 Sunday, and Major 1 Saturday sides, as well as becoming an integral part of our College's teams.

The coming weeks and months are set to be an extremely exciting for the club as our U19's will face Dundalk FC in the Enda McGuill Cup Final on Thursday 14th September at 7.30pm in the UCD Bowl, before they take on Europe as they face Molde FK (Norway) in the first round of the UEFA Youth League with the first leg in the UCD Bowl on Wednesday 27th September at 6.30pm, before the return leg in Molde on Wednesday 18th October at 6.30pm in the Aker Stadion. Why not become part of our future success?
