Academy Weekend Preview: July 15th-16th

Sligo Rovers Academy is back in action this weekend with four competitive fixtures taking place on Saturday and Sunday as well as our Under 14 squad travelling to FAI HQ to take part in the Festival of Football competition on Saturday.

The lads will face four fixtures throughout the day which starts at 11.50am against Cork City. At 1.30pm, Waterford FC is the opposition before quickly facing Shelbourne straight after, at 2.20pm.

The day will end with a game against North-West neighbours Finn Harps at 4pm.

Our Men’s Under 17 side are looking to continue their good form recently with a home game against Finn Harps at The Sean Fallon Centre at 1pm, the same time as our Under 17 Women host the same opposition at Ballisodare United’s All-Weather pitch.

On Sunday, our Men’s Under 19’s travel North to Derry City at The Ryan McBride Brandywell Stadium at 2pm. The side remain unbeaten since April and drew 1-1 with the Candystripes at the same venue back in March.

Our Under 15 side travel to Marlay Park in Dublin at 3pm in a game against UCD.

The sides last met at The Showgrounds in June with Rovers winning 3-0 on the day.
