The Women's National League has been expanded to nine teams ahead of the start of the 2020 season with Bohemians and Treaty United welcomed into the fold.

The FAI have confirmed that the Dublin and Limerick clubs have both had their applications accepted and will join Athlone Town as new entrants.

The Westmeath outfit's inclusion was confirmed last November after the omission of Kilkenny United.

United made an appeal after their removal but were turned down and they released a statement expressing their 'shock' and 'devestation'.

"Kilkenny United WFC as a club feel very let down by the FAI Women's Committee regarding our removal from the WNL for the 2020 Season.

"This has come as great shock to us and to our players who have been left devastated by the news."
