Galway United game to open pre-season

Sligo Rovers can confirm two friendlies later this month as part of our pre-season programme.

In the first outing of 2020, Rovers will take on Galway United in Solar 21 Park, Castlebar (formerly known as Milebush) on Saturday 18th January.

Kick-off is 1pm, admission will be €5. It is a repeat of the fixture at the same venue last year.

The following Friday, 24th January, Rovers will meet Drogheda United in Dublin.

The game takes place at 7pm at the FAI campus in Abbotstown. The game is not open to supporters.

Liam Buckley said: “Galway United have strengthened this year so they should provide a good test in Mayo, while Drogheda United came close to promotion last year and will be a leading contender again this season.

“We have made the commitment to travel for various reasons as I explained last week.

“It’s worth it and this will be a good start to the matches for pre-season.”
