Academy Weekend Review

Last weekend saw just three of our academy teams in action across Saturday and Sunday.

Our Under 17 Women and Under 14 & 15 Men’s sides all had the weekend off, so it was business as usual for the rest of the academy.

On Saturday our Under 17 Men’s side defeated Longford Town 4-0 at The Sean Fallon Centre. Goals from Niall Holohan, Oisin Tighe, Adam Nugent & Sam Tuohy were enough to secure the points. The visitors had a couple of chances of their own throughout the game but couldn’t find the net past the Rovers’ keeper.

Sunday saw both our Under 19 sides in action.

Our Men’s team defeated Drogheda United 4-1 at The Sean Fallon Centre. Ciaran Jennings’ goal saw the sides go into the break level after an even first half. Josh Mulrennan scored his second penalty in as many games to give Rovers the lead early in the second half and goals from Aidan McHale and Kailin Barlow wrapped up all three points.

The Women’s team travelled to Dublin to take on Peamount United in Greenogue. Both sides created a number of good chances in the game with Rovers’s losing out 5-2, with goals from Eimear McIntyre and an OG.

This coming weekend, Cavan/Monaghan are our opponents at Under 14, Under 15 and Under 17 Men’s level, with our Under 19 men taking on Finn Harps.

Our Under 19 Women’s team host Bray Wanderers with our Under 17’s taking on Galway.

As always, thanks to our sponsors for their support.
