Rovers defeat Treaty United in friendly

Sligo Rovers overcame Treaty United in a friendly at The Showgrounds on Thursday night thanks to goals from strikers Owen Elding and Pedro Martelo.

Manager John Russell used the game to give some playing time to players returning from injury or suspension and it proved a good evening’s work as Reece Hutchinson, Fabrice Hartmann, Daniel Lafferty, James Finnerty, Richard Brush and Karl O’ Sullivan all started the game.

There was a blend of senior and youth in the squad with many of our Under 17 and 19 players involved in the game as well.

Next up for Rovers is that big game against Shelbourne on Saturday week, August 26th at 7.45pm.
