Academy Weekend Preview – October 9th

There are five academy games taking place this weekend, with three on Saturday and two on Sunday.

Up first are our Under 14’s who finish their season at home to Longford Town at 12 Noon at The Sean Fallon Centre. The team have made great strides since the beginning of the season and found their form during the summer and will be happy with their season overall.

At 2pm on the same venue, The Under 17 women’s team host Greystones, having won the return fixture a fortnight ago in Wicklow. The girls are in a great position in the table and know that a win here will set up the end of the season nicely.

At 5pm, in Balldonnell, Dublin, Our Under 17 men’s team face UCD. The team currently lie in second position in the group and will be looking to pick up all three points in a tough away fixture. Daniel Kelly misses the game as he is on international duty.

On Sunday, our Under 15 team wrap up their season against Longford Town at 2pm on the Sean Fallon Centre All Weather pitch. The lads have had another steady season and can be proud of their efforts ahead of the end of season break.

At the same time there is a crucial clash in St Aidans College, Dublin as our Under 19 men’s team face a tough test away to Bohemian FC. The lads are currently 5 points clear at the top of the table with 4 games remaining. Conor Walsh is on international duty in Cork and will miss the game.

Our Under 19 women have a weekend off as they prepare for their end of season games in the coming weeks.
