Sunday afternoon saw three games take place, with two at home at The Sean Fallon Centre.

First up, at 1pm, Darryl Keaney’s Under 15 side won 4-2 at home to Athlone Town with Matteo Seccondino, Jamie O’ Malley and Darragh McKeon, who scored twice, making the difference. The side showed great fighting spirit having trailed 2-0 at one point.

Darragh Healy’s Under 19 Womens team defeated Galway United 3-0 at the same venue thanks to goals from Jessica Casey, Katie McGuire and Eimear McIntyre. The result now means the side have won five out of their last six games.
