Phoenix F.C. is a football club from Fingal in Dublin, Ireland. The club competes in the Leinster Senior League. Phoenix plays at a football complex in Scribblestown.[1] Their manager is Vernon McAllorum who started his coaching career with Dunboyne FC[2][3]

History[edit]

The club was formed on 1 June 2006 by the amalgamation of Ashtown Villa and Kinvara Ards.[1] For their part, Kinvara Ards, who were established in 1982, had previously merged with Kinvara Boys.[4]

The committee of Ashtown Villa FC had a vision to bring in schoolboy football to the community based on one club operating in Scribblestown at the wonderful & pristine all weather facilities which is complimented with two grass pitches and a modern club house.

This facility in Scribblestown would not have been possible without the hard work & graft of Seamus O' Connell and his committee. Seamus picked up on an opportunity for a ground swap deal with a well known property developer which left the club in a very healthy financial state.
