Sligo Rovers Academy had six games over the weekend with all teams in action across Saturday and Sunday.

On Saturday, our Under 14 team defeated Galway United 5-2 at The Sean Fallon Centre with goals from Aidan Gabbidon, Sonny Malone (2), Ryan Lang and Ryan Cunningham. It means the lads have now won their opening two games this season.

Our Under 17 Women’s team began their season with a good away win against Treaty United in Limerick on Saturday afternoon. Debutant Orlaith Doherty got both goals for Darren Kelly’s side.

Also on Saturday, our Under 17 Men’s side were beaten 3-0 away to UCD.
