Shamrock Rovers announce Club partnership with Templeogue United.


Shamrock Rovers F.C. and Templeogue United have entered a partnership which sees both clubs working together to give children from the Templeogue area and further afield a pathway to professional football in this country. This relationship will see the two clubs strive to produce the next generation of talented Irish footballers. Players not only for our national league or Intermediate football teams, but also players that would be comfortable and capable in our national team.


It is another exciting partnership at underage level following on from previous announcements of Shamrock Rovers F.C. partnerships with Lucan United, Corduff F.C. and Kildare District Underage League as the club implements its stated commitment of giving players every opportunity to fulfil their true potential.


Speaking on behalf of Shamrock Rovers, Shane Robinson (Academy Director) said:

“This is another exciting partnership for Shamrock Rovers. Over the last two years we been adding to our partnerships. We already have partnerships with KDUL, Corduff FC and Lucan Utd. This partnership is one that brings two clubs in close proximity of each other together. It is important that between all the clubs we provide the appropriate level of competition for the players in our care. We see this partnership as being crucial to this plan. Templeogue have a history of producing schoolboy internationals and it is our intention to help them to continue this tradition. Already we have a number of former Templeogue Utd players playing in our National League teams and we are looking forward to adding to this list. Templeogue Utd has some great people working with the club and we are looking forward to working closely with them. Our existing partnerships with Corduff FC, Lucan Utd and the KDUL are already proving to be very beneficial for both sides and we welcome Templeogue Utd to our club.


Speaking on behalf of Templeogue United, John Cannon (Secretary) said :

“This partnership will prove to be hugely beneficial to both clubs as it will help nurture all of our teams across the club, whatever the standard of football. Over the next number of years, both clubs will work closely together in a coaching and learning capacity. Within this link, players from both clubs may at times unite to train together and to enter tournaments with the other affiliates involved. This may also result in a possible movement of players between both clubs, providing a great opportunity for our players to reach their maximum potential.”
