Academy Weekend Review: April 4th

Our Academy teams were all in action over the weekend between Saturday and Sunday.

First up was our Under 14 team who hosted Shamrock Rovers at The Sean Fallon Centre, with the visitors impressing and running out convincing winners.

There was a double header at Under 17 level in Oriel Park with both our men’s and women’s teams facing Dundalk. At 1.30pm, our women’s team were defeated 2-1 with a goal from Orna Murphy not enough to gain any points.

The men’s side had a highly entertaining game at 3.30pm with 8 goals shared in a 4-4 draw. Michael Clifford scored twice and goals from Daire Patton and Adam Nugent ensured the spoils were shared.

Sunday saw our Under 15 team travel to Longford Town at Midday. Goals from Jayden Reynolds, Conor Langan (2), Callum Lynch, Johnny McGuinn, Cian Nicholson and Reuben Gillespie saw Paul Masterson’s side run out winners.

Our under 19 men’s team were defeated 3-2 in Letterkenny against Finn Harps. Goalscorers on the day were Kailin Barlow and Darragh Reilly.

Our Under 19 women’s team suffered their first defeat of the season in Dublin as Shelbourne defeated Darragh Healy’s side 3-1. Katie Maguire scored Rovers’ only goal.
