Swilly Rovers to remain in USL after all

Swilly Rovers FC have reversed a decision to withdraw from the Ulster Senior League - and will not now be switching to junior soccer.

The club voted at a meeting on Wednesday night to end a 30 year association with the Ulster Senior League and Intermediate football.

However, the decision was reversed on Thursday night following a special meeting.

It means Swilly will now prepare for the new USL season which starts in August.

They will also advertise for a new manager after Jason Gibson recently stepped down as first team boss.
