U17 Tom Lynne Cup Winners

Sunday September 23rd 2018.

U17 Tom Lynne Cup Final – SDFL Complex, Lucan.

Lakelands U17A 3 Harolds Cross 2

Congratulations to Dave Hegarty and John Reade and the boys of the Lakelands U17A team. For the second season in a row and against all the odds, Lakelands have won the SDFL U17 League Cup. In doing so, they had to beat a Harolds Cross team who had won 12, drawn 2 and lost none of their league and cup games this season. What a result. It will be great to have some silverware on the stage at the end-of-season event again this year.

Herald Striker – Newspaper Article

We got a really nice write up in the Herald Striker about our End of Season Event and the launch of the new logo and kit. Nice picture of U10 boys coaches Bobby Cramer and Alan Kelly and U10 players Hugo Carroll and Robert Kennedy. Have a read below…

Presentation From Parents Evening

Thanks to all of you who turned up for our Parents Information Evening.  For those of you who missed it, the presentation can be viewed below.


Child Welfare Procedures

Lakelands FC is committed to ensuring that all necessary steps are
taken to protect and safeguard the welfare of the children and young
people who play with the club, this includes ensuring that all
managers and coaches are Garda Vetted and that safe recruitment
procedures are followed.

The National Vetting Bureau (Children and Vulnerable Persons) Acts 2012
– 2016 commenced on 29th April 2016 and since that date a statutory
obligation has been placed upon the FAI to ensure that all persons who
undertake ‘relevant work’ with children have been vetted prior to
taking up that role.

It is now a criminal offence for a person acting on behalf of the FAI
or Lakelands FC to work with children in the absence of Garda Vetting.

There is an important email that has been sent this evening to all
managers and coaches to update them on the new process so please read
this information and address any queries to

Warm wishes

Brendan Kelly
Chairman and Acting Child Welfare Officer
