ATAFC’S Mary Philips named LOI Academy WU17 Player of the Year

Congratulations to Athlone Town AFC’s u17 Women’s player Mary Philips who was named the League of Ireland’s Women’s under 17 Player of the Year. Here she is collecting her award at last month’s highest ever attended FAI Cup men’s final at the Aviva Stadium.

Mary had a great year with the u17 women’s team and played a key role in helping The Town reach the WU17 League of Ireland Cup Final. The Portlaoise native also made her senior debut this year in a 2-1 win over Wexford Youths at Athlone Town Stadium on November 4th, and was on the bench for The Town’s FAI Women’s Cup Final win over Shelbourne.

Philips also represented Ireland this year at u19 level, earning herself 3 caps for her country.
