History

Originally, Foyle Rovers was formed in 1904, and there first match was against a Bredaghglen team, Moville lost the match 1-0. Foyle Rovers initially wore red and black stripes back then, they only converted to the hoops or anything green when they changed their name to Moville Celtic in the 1920’s. Moville Celtic joined the D&D soon after that with a certain degree of success. The closest they came to the Premier title was when they lost a play off. Their best run of results came circa ’76-’77 when they won 7 trophies in the one year Moville’s home pitch was at the Bayfield up until the summer of 2008. There are many stories to be heard from players {Old and young} who have many fond memories of matches at the Bayfield. In the 2006-2007 Season, the Team commenced playing their home games at the new Glencrow Ground. It has to be said that it is one of the best pitches in Inishowen, even Donegal In more recent years, back in the 1997-98 season, a Moville Celtic team {managed by Joe Bredin & Danny McDermott}won 4 trophies, Trophies won that year were: The Premier League, Fruit of the Loom Cup, Bertie O’Neill Cup and the Carndonagh Summer Cup. The 07/08 Season, the Moville Celtic Senior Team won the League Cup, defeating a Redcastle Team in the Final at Greencastle’s Ground, the score was 1-0, Nigel Mc Monagle with the Winner in Injury Time. This was a Historic Year for Moville Celtic & John Canning (the Manager), when the senior Team won the only trophy in Donegal/Ulster competition that has never been won by a Moville Team. A 2-1 victory against Redcastle Utd. at Maginn Park was very well deserved on the night, with Nigel McMonagle scoring the first and then Richie Mc Elhinney scoring the Winner! In that same 2008/09 season, the Moville Reserve Team (managed by Eunan Mc Daid) won the Treble in fantastic style.

Statement from the Inishowen Football League

The Inishowen Football League Management Committee , after consultation with all clubs, have decided to cancel the 2020- 2021 season . The leagues proposal was unanimously backed by the clubs. Given the recent government announcement it is hoped that clubs will be able to have a “normal”
pre-season in July in advance of the 2021-2022 season commencing in mid August. The league management would like to thank the clubs  for their co-operation in this process. As the Ulster Cup & Shield Competitions from 2019-2020 season were at an advanced stage the league will liaise  with the Ulster FA with a view to completing these competitions. League Management would also urge all clubs to continue to follow all the guidelines as laid out in the FAI return to train protocols. A  date for the AGM will be circulated to clubs  in due course.
