Shamrock Rovers Academy Results - 31st July/1st August


Shamrock Rovers 0-3 St. Patrick's Athletic

U19 EA Sports League of Ireland

Tallaght Stadium

Aidan Price's U19 side fell to a disappointing defeat to Dublin rivals St. Patrick's Athletic in Tallaght Stadium on Sunday afternoon. First-teamer Max Murphy started for Rovers, along with recent first-team debutants Dean McMenamny - who captained the U19s today -, Conan Noonan, Dylan Duffy and Aidomo Emakhu also starting for Price's side.

The visitors did all the damage in the 1st half, when they found themselves heading into the break leading by three goals to nil. Tommy Lonergan opened the scoring for the Inchicore side before former Hoop Sam Curtis (who only signed for St. Pat's during the week) doubled the visitors lead.

Sami Clarke extended the visitors lead before the break, and they comfortably saw out the second-half to condemn Rovers to their first defeat of the season.

Rovers welcome Sligo Rovers to Tallaght next weekend in the U19 EA Sports League of Ireland, as the Hoops look to return to winning ways after this weekend's disappointing defeat.
