THE FUTURE of the Ulster Senior League has been a real discussion point for Donegal’s soccer fans in recent times.
The USL is currently operating with only six teams – Bonagee United, Cockhill Celtic, Derry City Reserves, Fanad United, Letterkenny Rovers and Swilly Rovers.
The likes of Finn Harps Reserves, Buncrana Hearts, Drumkeen United, Kildrum Tigers, Killea FC, Convoy Arsenal, QPS, Keadue Rovers and Glenea United have left the local intermediate grade over the last decade.
The League has returned to a winter season having played summer football since 2007, but the volume of departures has left it on the brink.
Herbie Barr is the FAI’s Provincial Administrator in the Ulster FA and Anthony Gorman is the manager of Letterkenny Rovers’ Under-19s, who had a stellar career as a player.

They join Charlie Collins to discuss the situation on this week’s Donegal Sport Hub Podcast, in association with the Radisson Blu Hotel, Letterkenny, our main sponsor.
