St Oliver Plunkett Football Club was founded in 1969 when the new community in Lenadoon attempted to redress the hurt and damage it, and particularly the young people, were experiencing during the outbreak of the troubles. Based in and organised from the youth club the club thrived for many years with the senior sides experiencing great success in the Northern Amateur Football League and the junior sides picking up numerous coveted trophies in underage leagues. Beyond the control of leaders and members alike the youth club sadly closed its doors in 1981 and placed the future of the football sides in real doubt. Against the odds, volunteers such as Jackie Maxwell continued, operating without a base, providing this much needed service for the children of Lenadoon. Today the club fields 11 sides each week in The National League,The South Belfast Boys Football League, The North Down League and The NAFL. With a playing membership of over 200 boys. Recently the club has acquired its own pitch at a newly developed site in Lenadoon which it now uses for training and playing on each week. The club each week is reponsible for the set up of 20 separate coaching/training evenings using various venues within the Belfast area.
