Academy Weekend Preview: September 8th-9th

Our Academy has a total of five games taking place this coming weekend between Saturday and Sunday.

Our Under 19 Men’s have no fixture this weekend following their 5-1 win over Derry City at The Showgrounds last Sunday.

On Saturday, at The Showgrounds, our Under 17 Womens team take on Dundalk at 1pm. The two sides met at Oriel Park at the end of July and played out an entertaining 2-2 draw.

Our Under 14’s also play Dundalk on Saturday, with kick-off at Oriel Park at 2pm. This is the start of Phase 3 of the Under 14 National League season.

Our Under 17 Men’s team are on the road to face Finn Harps at 2pm. The sides are no strangers having played against eachother twice already in 2023, with Rovers winning away from home back in May in the Under 17 Cup and playing out a 2-2 draw at home in July.

Sunday sees two games take place with our Under 15 side hosting Drogheda United at 1pm at The Sean Fallon Centre. It’s the first meeting of the sides so far this season.

Our Under 19 Women are on the road again on Sunday, following last week’s long journey to Cork is an equally long trip to Ferrycarrig Park to take on Wexford Youths at 3pm.

Last week’s 3-2 win made the journey a fruitful one and the side will be hoping to make it two wins from two in Wexford.
