We are all looking forward to having Anton & Marc join our team & together helping the players maximise their potential as a group. 

DLSP chairman Dan McCartney confirmed that the former Clontarf man Anton O'Donnell would join the DLSP coaching team as the head coach for the 2017/2018 season. Commenting on the appointment McCartney said: We were always looking at options and resources but once we were made aware of Anton & Marc's availability, we narrowed our focus & we are delighted to have Anton & Marc come on board. I know, having spoken at lenght to both men, that both are excited at the challenge of helping DLSP FC return to the All Ireland League next season. We welcome Anton & Marc on board. I think our club members & supporters are going to be excited by the announcement & wish all involved the very best for the season ahead. 

Werahiko has furthered bolstered his back room management team with the appointements of Sean O'Riordan & Ciaran Shields. Werahiko has also recruited several new players to the club & with the current group of players from last year signed on for the forthcoming season DLSP have certainly put their hat into the ring for a return to the helm of Irish Club Rugby (AIL).
