The latest player to join the growing DDG family is Peamount United Striker Eleanor Ryan-Doyle.
The Dublin based Striker has been part of the club since a youngster, and come through the ranks successfully attaining international caps, winning the Irish National League and competing in the UEFA Champions League.
Ellie played many games with DDG’s own Bundesliga striker and Peamount legend Amber Barrett in what was an incredible and dynamic pairing which delivered so many goals back in the day.
Ellie is the current leading scorer in the Irish Women’s National League (WNL) with Peamount United leading the pack again for the third consecutive season.
Ellie was recently awarded the SSE Airtricity WNL “Player of the Month” award for May as the side continues its unbeaten run.
International at U15, U16, U17, U19 levels, and appearances in the Taiwan and Naples World Student Games lead to Ellie being called up to the Republic of Ireland senior camps in 2019… an obvious positive trajectory going-forward.
Subsequent WNL winning medals in 2019, 2020, and a second Cup winning medal in 2020, would suggest that she is headed in the right direction for a realisation of her dream to represent her country.
Whilst pleased to receive the recent ‘Player of the Month’ award, Ellie was keen to highlight those around her to Irish football publication “The 42”, stressing the fact that it’s a team effort and that these plaudits must be shared…
“A refreshing attitude” says DDG Director Steve Harrison.
‘Any elite athlete needs to have an ego, aspirations, and ambition but it is always critical to keep a lid on these emotions and understand the dynamic that is team spirit and the collective sum of the parts being as important as the individual”.
“It is reassuring to see any player finding time to associate personal gains by embracing the collective of the team. It really is in the spirit of DDG, and I believe we will be a natural and obvious home for Ellie, and we all look forward to being part of her success in the future.’’
Final words from Ellie:
“I am delighted to be part of DDG, and I can’t wait to start working with Steve and the rest of the team, to get the best of myself as a footballer”
