Possibly the biggest game of the women's football calendar takes place this Saturday afternoon, as the Youths Women face Shelbourne at Tolka Park.


It's a massive three points at stake, both sides really needing a win to keep the pressure on top of the table Peamount United.  Youths and Shels go into the weekend with a very similar record, with just a 2 points lead for Shelbourne and Wexford having a superior goal difference.  The Youths are in stunning form at the moment, with 5 wins in a row and many of the squad in the form of their life.  A big game at an ideal time, one would hope.


The two sides have had a long-running and intense rivalry over the past number of years, dividing most of the major titles between them until the recent domination by Peamount United.  Always an unmissable fixture, and we'll be hoping for another memorable edition on Saturday afternoon.


As always, Saturday's match will be live on LOITV.ie completely for free.  The match will once again be played behind closed doors, but we are thrilled to see the potential return of fans later this summer.


In team news, the Youths Women still have just one absentee in Aoife Slattery, with a long term injury picked up last season.  


Kickoff at Tolka Park is set for 2.00pm
