Family Day Friday against Bray

This Friday is 'Family Day Friday' as The Bit O’Red return from the mid-season break for our big SSE Airtricity League Premier Division clash with Bray Wanderers.
 
Kick-off in the Showgrounds is 7:45 for game 16 of the 2016 season.
 
To celebrate Family Day Friday, all children under 12 who are accompanied by a paying adult will be admitted to the game for FREE. There will also be FREE face painting for all children and FREE ice cream for all under 12s between 6pm and 6.30pm. Also, don't miss your chance to have your photo taken with Benny the Bull! 
 
Dave Robertson’s team went into the break on a strong run of form to sit 7th in the table within touching distance of the top half.
 
Rovers are unbeaten in The Showgrounds since the opening night loss to Shamrock Rovers.
 
Since that Rovers have got to seven games undefeated in home games. The last four of those have all been wins with Longford Town, Wexford Youths, Cabinteely and Bohemians all beaten by an aggregate 11-1 scoreline.
 
The Bit o’Red are looking to reverse fortunes from our previous meeting with Bray this year that saw a 4-0 loss at The Carlisle Grounds.
 
Since then things have turned for both teams with Rovers shooting up the table while The Seagulls have let manager Mick Cooke go and sit second from bottom.
 
Tickets will be on sale at the gate at the following prices:
 
Adults - €15
 
Students/OAPS - €10
 
Kids under 12 - €5
