Drumkeen United celebrate twenty years on

donegal league winners 1994
Back in the 1993/94 season, Drumkeen United swept all before them in The Donegal League. Under the guidance of Noel Bonner, ably assisted by James Green, they won the Premier league, the Ulster Cup, the Sportsman’s cup and the FAI Cup (Area final).

The team had a good blend of youth and experience and during the season they scored 102 goals with the three front men Hugo Bonner, Noel McNulty and Chris Breen getting 68 of them.

To mark the 20th Anniversary we are hoping to get as many of them as possible together this Saturday evening.The club moved up to the Ulster Senior League at the start of the 94/95 season.


The plan is to play a match against another Drumkeen selection and probably a few guests,We are hoping to get as many former players as possible to come along on the night.Even if you haven’t kicked a ball for years why not come along and meet some old friends , this will be a great evenings crack.The game will kick off at 7 pm and afterwards we will head up to Jamesons Bar Drumkeen for light refreshments, This was the scene of many post match gatherings in the past and many’s a goal was scored up there over the years.

All Former players and committee members are welcome to come along on the night, even if you just play for 10 mins or you just want to watch.All proceeds from the evening will go to the Oisin Merritt Fund. Oisin played for the club at u 18 level.

Many players have represented the club over the years so hopefully we can coax a few of them out of retirement for one night only.
