Academy Weekend Review: May 15th

There were just two games down for decision this weekend and both were in respective cup competition.

On Friday evening Declan Boyle’s Under 19 Men’s team took on Longford Town away from home.

Goals from Patrick Montgomery and Eanna Clancy ensured Rovers progressed to the next round in a 2-1 victory. Both sides played some good football in an entertaining game at City Calling Stadium.

On Saturday afternoon in Ballymun, Aaron O’ Connor’s Under 17 Women’s team were defeated 4-1 against Shelbourne. A goal from Katie Heaney proved only to be consolation as Rovers bow out of the cup. The Bit O’ Red did create some chances and could have had more goals on another day.
