Academy Weekend Review: May 20th-21st

The Bit O’ Red had five Academy games across the weekend in the respective Underage Leagues.

On Saturday, our Under 17 Women were beaten 2-0 at home to Galway United at The Sean Fallon Centre in wet and miserable conditions.

Our Under 17 Men’s team were narrowly beaten at home to Longford Town at the same venue. Niall Kenny’s goal wasn’t enough to take any points in a 2-1 loss.

On Sunday, our Under 19 Men’s team drew 3-3 with UCD, also at The Sean Fallon Centre.

Two Owen Elding goals and a third from Bridel Bosakani ensured the points were shared in an entertaining game.

Our Under 19 Women lost 2-0 in Athlone against the Midlanders to end a good recent record.

Our Under 15 team had an impressive 4-1 win away to Finn Harps thanks to goals from Aidan Gabbidon, Troy Kelly, Oran Murphy and an own goal from a home player.
