The Mark Farren Cup final for Sligo Rovers’ U17 side will take place on Saturday, September 23, at 2pm.

Rovers will be away to Wateford for the final.

Rovers U17 boss Danny O’Leary says that the long journey south and the preparations for a national final, will be a great experience for his players…

Meanwhile, Sligo Rovers’ Jack Keaney has been called into the Irish U19 squad for two friendly games against the Czech Republic.

The Donegal Town native – who recently signed his first professional contract with the Bit O’ Red – has been added to the squad by former Finn Harps player Tom Mohan, who manages the Irish U19 side.

The squad will face the Czechs in Waterford on Saturday and again on Monday.

The games are preparation for October’s Uefa U19 Championships Qualifying Round games where Ireland will host Azerbaijan, Cyprus and Serbia.
