The Teams

Treaty United

It’s a new beginning for Treaty United who are under the tutelage of former Irish Senior International Dominic Foley this season.

With the addition of some talented players from North America along with the signing of wonderkid Fiana Bradley, Treaty are looking their strongest yet having had a good pre-season campaign which included victories over Wexford FC and Sligo Rovers.

DLR Waves

DLR come into Saturday’s game in Limerick having picked up a point at home to Shamrock Rovers last week.

It was a brilliant result against a side fancied by many to be involved in the title race, and so Laura Heffernan’s side will be high in confidence on Saturday against a new-look Treaty United team.
