60 days to the start of the new season

 

The countdown to the 2015 season has begun with the season start just 60 days away.

Rovers will begin the 2015 SSE Airtricity League campaign with a clash against last season’s runners-up Cork City at the Showgrounds on Saturday March 7th.

That will be followed by two other big home games in March with Derry City and Shamrock Rovers visiting on March 21st and March 23rd/24th respectively.

That means three out of the first four games this season will be at the Showgrounds. There will also be visits to Drogheda and Dundalk in the opening month for the Bit o’Red.

You can see the full fixture list for 2015 here.

The squad will return for pre-season training on Wednesday next week, January 14. We will have plenty of updates on the progress of the team’s preparations over the coming weeks.

New manager Owen Heary will be looking to get off to a good start against some of last year’s leading teams.

He gave his reaction to facing Cork City first: "It will definitely be a big test for us and a tough game but at least we are at home. They had a great season last year.

“It is the type of game that we want to be winning if we are going to have a successful year. It's important that we prepare for the game properly and we are looking forward to it already."

On having three of the first four games at the Showgrounds he added: "It is a good thing to help us get a good start. Everyone will start the season on an even par and will be anxious to get their seasons going early.

“It is a positive for us and we will be looking to hit the ground running in those games. It is important that we prepare ourselves properly in pre-season and don't expect that we will win those games because we are at home. We will have to do our business properly."
