Academy Weekend Review: September 9th-10th

Our Academy had five games on Saturday and Sunday with all teams in action other than our Under 19 Men’s team who had a weekend off due to International matches taking place.

On Saturday, our Under 17 Women’s team hosted Dundalk at 1pm at The Showgrounds and the girls were on the end of a narrow 1-0 defeat.

Rovers Under 14’s were in action away to Dundalk at Oriel Park and the hosts ran out 3-1 winners on the day, with Conor Whittaker’s goal proving to be only a consolation.

Finally, our Under 17 Men’s side had a good away win against Finn Harps on Saturday afternoon.

Goals from Conor Reynolds, Conor Cannon and Niall Kenny were enough to seal the three points.

Sunday saw two games take place with our Under 15 side at home to Drogheda United at The Sean Fallon Centre and our Under 19 Women’s side away to Wexford Youths.

The Under 15 game was an entertaining one with six goals shared between the teams in a 3-3 draw.

Rovers goalscorers on the day were Cead McGrath, Liam McLaughlin and Oisin Keenan.

Our Under 19 Women suffered a 4-0 defeat against a strong home side at Ferrycarrig Park.
