A final Word on the 2020 WNL Season

For the final time this season we were joined by award winning journalist Emma Duffy of the42.ie. We had a look through the 2020 Women’s National League season. You can listen on Spotify below, or on PodBean clicking here. You can also get our podcasts on most platforms, including Apple, by searching Post to Post Sport.

It was an unusual year all around. There were times we were worried the season may not go ahead at all. We are grateful to everybody who made the season possible and all those who gave up their time. We really appreciate the support our WNL podcast has gotten over the season with guests always willing to come on.

Final Standings

Table History

Peamount were deserved league and cup champions. The double winners lost just once in all competitions this season, and were only knocked out of the Champions League on penalties. Simply, they were irresistible.

Shelbourne ran the champions close, and were ultimately only 15 minutes away from winning the league. We would like to wish David Bell all the best as he moves on from the club.

Wexford Youths, Cork City, and Galway make up the rest of the top 5. Cork will be particularly happy as they continue to improve each year and had a cup final this season too. DLR Waves were unlucky to miss out, and have done fantastic work for the mental health charity Suicide or Survive.

The new sides Athlone Town, Treaty United, and Bohemians proved to be sustainable additions to the league. Bohs got to play in Dalymount Park, the first WNL game to take place there. All 3 sides impressed in their first season.

Thank you to the WNL Show for joining us on the show throughout the season and providing the entire Women’s National League fan base with stats, updates, and coverage throughout the season.

Thank you to all the coaches, players, and volunteers who have come on our show over the course of the season to provide input. Thank you to everybody who has listened and shared our podcasts and articles throughout the year.

We will return with regular Women’s National League podcasts next season. Until then, stay safe, and happy new year.

WNL Round-Up: 17 Goals in 3 Games

3 more games this weekend. During the week we have a Champions League tie and two FAI Cup semi-finals.

Bohemians 4-5 Treaty United

Bohs led 3-2 at halftime, but Treaty came back to win late on. First half goals from Shauna Newman, Aoife Robinson, and Sophie Watters had Bohs in front. Gillian Keenan and Aoife Horgan kept Treaty United in the game. Keenan got another before Jenna Slattery put the Limerick side ahead. A late Robinson goal looked to have secured a point for Bohs, but Chloe Connolly scored 3 minutes into injury time to seal the win for Treaty.

Shelbourne 4-0 Cork City

Shels moved top of the table having played one more game than Peamount. First half goals from Rachel Graham and Jess Gargan put them in control. Cork had their goalkeeper sent off, and Emily Whelan made it 3-0. Pearl Slattery sealed the win on the hour mark.

Wexford Youths 3-1 Galway

Wexford kept their title hopes alive with a win over Galway. After a scoreless first half, Sinead Taylor put Wexford ahead with her first goal for the side, before Aoife Thompson equalized shortly after. An Ellen Molloy double secured the win for Wexford.
