Academy Weekend Preview: March 18th-19th

The Bit O’ Red Academy teams are in action again this weekend as we begin week 3 of the 2023 season.

There are no games taking place at Under 14 or 15 level but both our Men’s and Women’s Under 17 & 19 teams are in games across Saturday and Sunday.

On Saturday at 1pm, Anthony Elding’s Under 17 Men’s team host Shamrock Rovers at 1pm at The Sean Fallon Centre. Admission for supporters is free and all support is welcome.

Our Under 17 Women’s team take on Longford Town away from home on Sunday at 2pm. Darren Kelly’s side won their first game against Treaty United before last weekend’s 2-1 defeat to Athlone Town.

Our Under 19 Men’s side are in The Ryan McBride Brandywell on Sunday at 2pm to take on The Cancdystripes in their second game of the new season. The opening game away to St. Patrick’s Athletic ended in a 3-1 defeat.

Finally, Darragh Healy’s Under 19 Women’s team host Bohemians at 4.30pm on Sunday afternoon at The Sean Fallon Centre.

The side were narrowly beaten away to Shamrock Rovers last weekend.
