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: Section 2 Completes

Section 2 of the league wrapped up while the title race in section 1 is still tight.

Women’s National League Section 1

Peamount United 3-0 Cork City

In a rehearsal for the FAI Cup final next month, Peamount kept their title hopes alive with a win against Cork. Early goals from McCartan and Duggan sent Peas on their way. O’Gorman scored just past the half hour mark to seal the win. Next week Peamount take on Shelbourne with the winner becoming league champions.

Galway 0-2 Wexford Youths

Wexford all but guaranteed a 3rd place finish with a win over Galway. Orlaith Conlon opened the scoring in the 17th minute. Ellen Molloy scored just before halftime time, with a super shot from outside the box that found the bottom right corner.

Women’s National League Section 2

Athlone Town 2-1 Bohemians

In a hard fought game Athlone picked up the 3 points to end their season on a high. Emma Donohoe got both goals for the home side.

Treaty United 0-3 DLR Waves

DLR finished top of section 2 with a 0-3 win. They got their first in the 45th minute. Carla McManus got the second, her first goal for the club. Captain Catherine Cronin scored the 3rd late on.

Permutations

Peamount United take on Shelbourne next week. The winner will be champions. If it is a draw Peamount would need to beat Wexford on the final day. A draw between Peamount and Shelbourne and a draw against Wexford would mean there would need to be a play-off.

The game kicks off at 6pm, and will be live streamed by the FAI.

Elsewhere Wexford Youths take on Cork on Saturday at 2pm.
