BORN TO COMPETE
The club was formed when Kinvara Ards and Ashtown Villa merged into a single club offering football for schoolkids from six years old through to the most senior ranks of the Leinster Senior League. Located in and around the Navan Road area of Dublin 7 where most of its members come from, Phoenix FC has enjoyed unprecedented growth over the past few years. This is in no small measure due to extensive local residential development along the Royal Canal resulting in a huge increase in its “Little-Nix” Academy which takes place every Sunday morning.
Typically the club finds that once kids join at a young age they tend to stay for their lifetime – this is evidenced by the fact that our senior teams are now almost fully made up of players who started their football careers with the club as young kids many years previously. There are currently 22 (and growing) Phoenix teams from U8s right through to two senior AUL teams. The club is delighted to announce that they will field three underage girls teams in the coming season. Although Phoenix consider themselves to be a community club they are proud to say that a number of their players have played at the very highest level for Premier League and League of Ireland teams. Phoenix have over 50 qualified volunteer coaches who are supported by UEFA A Licenced Head Coach Kay McKenna.
Club-playing facilities consist of two private floodlit astro pitches and two grass pitches on Scribblestown Lane as well as two excellent grass pitches in Martin Savage Park kindly provided by Dublin City Council. The club is famous for its friendly atmosphere and claims to offer the best coffee on the Navan Road from its bistro which operates all weekend and is much appreciated by home and away fans alike. The Scribblestown facility has been much improved and developed in recent years though a mix of members finances and support from the Sports Capital Programme.
Whilst the club values participation above all else they are proud they boast an impressive roll of honour which includes a famous run by their senior team to the quarter finals of the FAI Senior Cup in 1991 when they beat Derry City and Dundalk along the way. Apart from their many league titles they have also won the following cups including the FAI Junior and Intermediate Cups, along with the Gothia and Foyle Cups and underage level.
