Under 19s vs Drogheda

Last Saturday, Rovers made it two wins out of two when they followed up the defeat of UCD with an impressive 2-0 win against Shelbourne. Mark Sandford and Dean Ebbe were the scorers. Sandford also scored three against UCD on opening day while Ebbe issued a reminder to opposing defences of the style and form he displayed last year when he finished the season as top goalscorer for the Hoops.




On last Saturday’s game manager Declan Hevey says: “I was very pleased with the balance we got between defence and attack. We limited Shelbourne to half chances and maintained a superior possession of the ball. We want to improve in every game we play. We want to continue to defend soundly while sticking to our attacking principals.”


Hevey and his backroom team were very pleased with the big turnout at Tallaght Stadium for the game against Shels and are hoping that the fans will continue to support the team in big numbers. “That was as good a crowd as we had previously at any of the A Championship games we played at home”.


A couple of players caught the eye with their performances against Shelbourne but it’s a new ball game, so to speak,  for them and there’s a long way to go as the new season is still in its infancy. “Drogheda are one of the few teams to have beaten us in Tallaght”, says Hevey, they are very determined and well organised and we know we will have to be at our best to get the three points.”


Kick off is at 2pm and admission is free. Car parking is available at the stadium. Tea and coffee on sale at half time in the Megastore.
