Sligo Rovers friendly tonight called off

Tonight's friendly between Athlone Town FC and Premier Division champions Sligo Rovers has been called off after a pitch inspection.

It follows a day of heavy rain in Athlone which has left Lissywoollen pitch waterlogged and unplayable. A friendly between Willow Park and Bohemians, also planned for tonight, has also fallen victim to the weather conditions.

Earlier today, Athlone Town FC manager Roddy Collins named a 23-man squad ahead of the kick-off of action in the Airtricity League 1st Division season.

A statement from the club today (Wednesday) indicated that the manager has not ruled out adding several more names to the squad, if it is seen as an improvement.

The squad is as follows:


Paul Skinner

TJ Forde

Craig Sexton


Neil Harney

Roddy Collins Jnr

Robbie Clarke

Sean Byrne

Aidan Collins

Conor McMahon

Kevin Farragher


Ryan Coombes

Niall Lanigan

Marc Hughes

Stephen Relihan

Garvan Broughall

Brian Gill

Lee Dixon

Barry Clancy

Jonathan Kelty

Tzee Mustapha
