Athlone Town Looking Forward to Shelbourne

Athlone Town face Shelbourne in Tolka Park on Friday night in the SSE Airtricity League first division.

It’s their 12th game in the competition. The midlands side have won three, lost seven and drawn one.

The match kicks off in Tolka Park at a quarter to eight.


Gavin Kearney struck an 82nd minute equaliser for Athlone Town to grant them a one all draw at home to Cobh Ramblers last weekend.

The goal arrested their slide of six defeats in a row in the league.

Athlone Town manager Terry Butler has been speaking with Kevin McDermott about their draw with Cobh Ramblers and their clash with Shelbourne.

Butler is thrilled to see more players develop onto the team from their underage structure and says the team are looking forward to facing the Dublin side.
