Dykes excited about Sean Fallon Centre

 

Head of Youth Development and current first team interim manager Gavin Dykes spoke of his excitement ahead of the official opening of the Sean Fallon Centre tomorrow.

The opening will take place at 4pm just before a friendly with Accrington Stanley to mark the occasion and will be conducted by Minister for Sport Michael Ring, Myra Fallon (widow of Sean Fallon who the centre is being named after) and directors from Celtic FC. Republic of Ireland manager Martin O’Neill will also be in attendance.

Dykes said: “It’s fantastic for us to be opening this facility. It’s the fruition of so much hard work from a lot of people at the club.

“To have the Astro pitch and the new grass pitches is great for the club to have and be able to be use.

“The facilities we have here at the club are fantastic for the players to train on and really help us to develop young players.

“The foundations we have here at the club in terms of the talented players and the set up off the pitch give us a great opportunity to push on in the next few years and build on the success we’ve had recently.

“As I’ve said before whoever becomes the next manager here is getting a great job with a lot of opportunities. The future is very bright for Sligo Rovers.”

Tickets for the game will be on sale at the ground tomorrow with the opening taking place at 4pm.
