The Duhaney Park Football Club has been in existence for over four decades and has participated in organized football leagues since. The sport enjoyed its present level of sophistication locally and is now attracting international attention. Over the year the club has had mixed results, however in recent years success has been quite consistent and the efforts of the senior men’s team has given the club and the large community of supporters reasons to be proud. Unfortunately, the administrative, management and financial support did not keep pace with the success on the field of play, this causing a temporary slow down in the pace of the club’s progress.
