Big cup weekend for underage

 

Sligo Rovers underage teams have two massive cup ties early next week.

First up will be the under-17s in the Mark Farren Cup on Monday evening against Derry City. Kick-off will be at 6:30pm in Maginn Park, Buncrana.

Rovers are on a run of seven consecutive wins, all in the month of July, which started with a 2-1 win when last away to Derry City.

Recent form has been particularly impressive with 13 goals scored and none conceded.

The Bit o’Red beat Derry City 4-0 at the quarter-final stage of this competition in 2016.

At The Showgrounds on Tuesday evening, kick-off 7:30pm, it will be Rovers under-19s turn.

Opposition will be UCD, winners of the competition in 2015 and defending league champions. They also currently lead the south division.

Rovers, meanwhile, are leaders of the North Division with a three-point edge over Bohemians with six games left.

The Bit o’Red are undefeated in ten games since early May. That run includes wins over Athlone Town and St. Patrick’s Athletic without conceding.

Admission on Tuesday will be free and all fans are encouraged to come and support the young stars in this big game, many showed what they could do in a friendly along with first team players against Ballinamallard, earning a 2-0 win.
