Academy Weekend Review: March 18th-19th

Sligo Rovers Academy teams had four games between them over the weekend with two home games and two away games taking place at Under 17 & 19 Men’s and Women’s level.

First up, on Saturday, our Under 17 Men’s team defeated Shamrock Rovers 3-2 at The Sean Fallon Centre. Niall Kenny bagged a brace and Keelan Mullin added a third to seal the three points.

Sunday saw three games take place, with the only home game seeing our Under 19 Women defeat Bohemians 3-0 at The Sean Fallon Centre thanks to goals from Eimear McIntyre, Orna Murphy and a first of 2023 for Nola Eivers.

In The Brandywell, Owen Elding scored his first goal of the season for our Under 19 Men’s team in a 1-1 draw with Derry City.

Our Under 17 Women had a good win away to Longford Town thanks to a first club goal for Kya McKenna, which saw the Bit O’ Red win 1-0.

Our thoughts are with Under 19 Men’s player Sean McAteer who suffered a nasty knee injury in Derry yesterday. Stay strong, Sean.
