A DONEGAL LEAGUE club has folded, claiming that ‘people just don’t have the appetite for soccer anymore’.
After six years in existance, Mulroy Celtic have confirmed that they will not be participating in the Saturday League this season.
Following extensive talks between the club and the Donegal League executive in recent weeks, Mulroy have taken the decision to disband.
Enda Martin and Shane Friel were the chief powers behind the Mulroy club, who played their home games at Triagh-A-Locha.
This morning, Martin posted a statement on the club Facebook page confirming the decision.[adrotate group=”46″]
“Mulroy Celtic today sadly announce that they are folding as a club,” it read.
“The tough decision came after a struggle to raise money and to sign players. Its a shame to see the club go but unfortunately people just don’t have the appetite for “soccer” anymore.
“When myself and Shane formed the club people said we wouldn’t last 6 months but we managed 6 years.
“We had some great days and some great nights together. For myself and Shane we would like to thank everyone involved that helped us along the way.
“We can only apologise to the Donegal League for the late decision but its better doing it now than during the season which would have been inevitable. A big thanks to Terry Leyden, Jimmy Haughey and Declan Sherlock who gave us every opportunity to stay in the league. #farewellfromMulroy”Tags:
