Academy Weekend Review: September 5th

Sligo Rovers had five academy games over the weekend with only our Under 15’s having no fixture.

It started on Saturday afternoon with our Under 14’s making the journey to Dublin to take on Bohemians. It was a tough day for the lads as the hosts ran out 6-1 winners, Mark Nolan scored his first club goal as a consolation.

Our Under 17 Men’s side hosted Waterford at The Sean Fallon Centre. Michael Clifford scored for Rovers but the visitors won 5-1 in a clinical display in front of goal.

Our Under 17 Women’s team had a long journey to Wexford Youths at 2pm. It looked like the girls were going to come away with a well earned point but the hosts scored with the last kick of the game to take three points. A cruel ending after a strong Rovers’ display.

On Sunday our Under 19 teams were both in action.

Our Women’s side had an impressive win away to Bray at The Carlisle Grounds. The game ended 3-0 to Rovers with Katie McGuire on target for 14th time this season. A goal each from Aine Gorman and Rebecca Doddy sealed an important win.

Our Under 19 Men’s side lost 4-0 to Waterford away from home.
