WATCH: All the goals from Athlone Town's 3-1 win over Galway United

Free-scoring Athlone Town notched up a hugely impressive win in their first home game of the season when they defeated Galway United 3-1 on Friday.

A Gary Boylan own-goal was followed by a brace from Stephen Meaney, as Athlone raced into a 3-0 first half lead against the Tribesmen.

Wilson Waweru scored for Galway in the second half, but it proved scant consolation for the visitors who have a professional set-up in place this season under the management of Lecarrow native and former Cork City boss John Caulfield.

Adrian Carberry's Athlone have now bagged four points from a possible six so far, having drawn 2-2 away to UCD in their season-opener.
