Academy Weekend Preview: April 22nd

The Bit O’ Red Academy have another action-packed weekend upcoming with five games taking place between Saturday and Sunday afternoon.

Our Under 17 men’s team host Galway United at 1pm at The Sean Fallon Centre on Saturday. Darragh Reilly’s side were defeated 4-0 in Derry last weekend and will be looking to pick up some points at home.

At 2pm in Letterkenny, our Under 15 team face Derry City. Rovers are currently in good form with four wins from the opening five games in the group in 2022.

At the same time in Dublin, Aaron O’ Connor’s Under 17 women’s team face Bohemians at Oscar Traynor Centre. The girls go into the game on the back of a scoreless draw at home to Athlone Town last Saturday and currently have seven points from a possible eighteen so far this season.

On Sunday, both our Under 19 squads are in action.

At 2pm at The Sean Fallon Centre, our men’s side host Dundalk. The lads enjoyed a 2-1 win away from home last Sunday in Athlone and can make it three wins from three games with a win on Sunday.

Our Under 19 women’s side face a long trip to Marlay Park in Dublin to play DLR Waves at 3pm. The girls won 4-0 at home to Donegal last weekend and currently have thirteen points from a possible eighteen this season.

As always, all home fixtures at The Sean Fallon Centre are free to watch and all support is welcome.
