Harps U19s Face Shamrock Rovers in National Quarter Final


The Finn Harps U19s take on Shamrock Rovers at Finn Park on Saturday in a National League quarter final, fresh from a 3-0 win over Dundalk last weekend.  The Dubliners finished third in the Southern section having been pipped to second by Waterford on goal difference.  Harps will do well to contain Thomas Oluwa, who has notched 17 goals for the Hoops in the regular season, while Jamie Browne leads the way for Harps with a hat trick last weekend bringing his total for the year to 13.  Rovers last league outing was a 1-0 home defeat to Bray Wanderers.


Manager Joe Boyle is looking forward to the game, "Last week's match v Dundalk was an important victory and we were very pleased with the performance levels, although there is always room for improvement.  Shamrock Rovers U19s will probably consider themselves unlucky because they lost out on second place in the Southern group on goal difference and their recent form has been very good. They have a lot of talent in their side but so do we, so I would encourage people to come along on Saturday and get behind the lads and enjoy what should be a very competitive quarter final."
