Athlone Town will have representation in the Só Hotels Women's National League when the new season kicks off in March 2020.

The Midlander’s, who already have had a team playing in the Women's under-17 National League for the last two seasons, are making the step up to the senior game building on their participation in the underage women’s game.

Kayleigh Shine earned a place in the Republic of Ireland Women's under-19 squad for the European Championship qualifiers earlier this year on the back of her performances with Athlone’s under-17 team.

The FAI also confirmed on Wednesday that Bray Wanderers will enter a team into the women’s under-17 League next season – they are the 13th club to have a team in the underage league for 2020.

Shamrock Rovers and Carlow-Kilkenny FC announced last month that they would also have sides playing in the under-17 women’s league next season.
