Derry's opening game in the Ladies NFL set for Celtic Park

The Oakleafers are in a group with Louth, Leitrim and Antrim

Derry's opening game in the Ladies NFL set for Celtic Park

Celtic Park will host Derry's clash with Antrim

Derry Ladies will open their league against Antrim at Celtic Park next weekend, it has been confirmed.

The Oakleafers, under the management of Antrim native Odhran McNeilly, will play at the county ground before travelling to Louth and Leitrim.

On the flipside, there is a Derry link in the Saffrons' camp.  Former Derry player Emma Kelly, a native of Desertmartin, took over as Antrim manager this year after playing for the county.  Emma played at full-back in Antrim's All-Ireland junior winning team of 2012.

She has brought Kyla Trainor, an All-Ireland intermediate winner with Down in 2014, in as a selector.

It will make for an interesting sub-plot along the sideline as the season gets under way.

Derry's games:

Sunday, May 23 (2.00)
Celtic Park: Derry v Antrim

Sunday, May 30 (2.00)
Ballinamore: Leitrim v Derry

Sunday, June 6 (2.00)
Clann na nGael: Louth v Derry
