Academy Weekend Review: September 2nd-3rd

Our Academy teams had a good weekend results wise with four wins from four games.

On Saturday, our Under 17 Men’s side hosted Longford Town at The Sean Fallon Centre and goals from Daire Patton, Alan Hegarty and Niall Kenny were enough to seal a 3-0 win.

That was our only game on Saturday as both our Under 17 Women and Under 14 boys had the weekend off.

Sunday saw three games taking place, the first of which was our Under 15’s away to Dundalk at Oriel Park.

Troy Kelly and Adam Feeney both scored in a 2-0 win.

Our Under 19’s had a big win at home to Derry City at The Showgrounds.

Conor Campbell scored twice along with Rasheed Yeboah’s double and a fifth from Conor Reynolds as we won 5-1.

Rovers Under 19 Women’s side won 3-2 away from home against Cork City at Bishopsgate and the long journey was worthwhile as Rovers ran out 3-2 winners thanks to two goals from Orna Murphy and Katie McGuire’s winner.

Keeva Flynn started and played 90 minutes in the Republic of Ireland Under 17 Women’s win over Scotland in a friendly in Portugal.

Keeva will be part of the squad in tomorrow’s friendly against Portugal at 11am before returning home.

Conor Walsh has been called up to the Republic of Ireland Under 19 Men’s squad for two upcoming friendlies against Bosnia & Herzegovina this week.
