Academy Weekend Review: April 22nd-23rd

Our Academy had four games over the weekend between Saturday and Sunday.

First up was our Under 17 Womens team who hosted Treaty United at The Sean Fallon Centre on Saturday afternoon.

An entertaining game ended up with Rovers coming out on top, 3-1 the final score thanks to goals from Amy Murphy, Emma Walsh and Anna McDaniel.

Later that day our Under 14 side took on Finn Harps in Letterkenny.

Colm Jinks’ side took the lead through Matteo Seccondino’s second goal of the season but the hosts levelled late on to ensure the points were shared.

On Sunday both our Under 19 teams were in action with our Womens team hosting Shamrock Rovers at 1pm at The Sean Fallon Centre, with the Dubliners winning 2-0.

Our Mens team beat Athlone Town 2-1 away from home thanks to goals from Niall Holohan and Rasheed Yeboah.

Our Under 17 Men’s game against Shamrock Rovers was postponed following the death Oran Gethins, brother of our Academy player Zach.

We extend our deepest sympathies to Zach and the rest of his family.

We wish to thank Shamrock Rovers and the FAI for their understanding of the situation.
