Athlone face Wexford Youths in Leinster Senior Cup this weekend

An important campaign looms for Athlone Town, who continue to prepare ahead of the upcoming SSE Airtricity League First Division season with a Leinster Senior Cup clash against Wexford Youths at Lissywollen on Saturday evening, February 20, with a 7.45pm kickoff.

Alan Mathews’ squad were recently defeated 4-2 by newly promoted Finn Harps in Mullingar. It was a useful workout for both teams before next month’s competitive fixtures commence.

Mathews is currently working hard to stitch a decent squad together for what promises to be a demanding First Division, with Limerick FC especially strong at this level. Drogheda United and UCD also possess plenty of talented footballers, but Athlone’s youthful collection will be hoping to spring a few surprises when the serious action gets underway.
