Academy Weekend Preview – September 24th

There are five academy games down for decision across Saturday and Sunday as we approach the business end of the season.

If we enjoyed home comforts last weekend, with all games taking place at The Showgrounds, this weekend is the opposite, with all teams bar The Under 15 men’s team who have the weekend off facing tough away assignements.

Tomorrow, Saturday sees our Under 17 men’s team face Shelbourne at 2pm in Dublin’s AUL Complex. The lads enjoyed a break last weekend after victory over Cabinteely a fortnight ago.

Also tomorrow, Our Under 14 boys team face Finn Harps in the Under 14 cup. Kick off is at 2pm for the ever improving side.

Our Under 17 women’s team travel to Woodlands in Dublin at 4pm to take on Greystones. The girls had an entertaining 3-3 draw against DLR Waves last Saturday.

Both Under 19 sides are in action on Sunday. Declan Boyle’s Men’s side face a tough game in Balldonnell against UCD at 5pm while in Donegal, 30 minutes later, our Women’s team kick off in against Donegal Ladies.

Both Under 19 sides won last weekend and will be looking to continue their good form this weekend.

Thanks to our sponsors for their continued support of the Bit O’ Red Academy.
