Match Preview: v Galway United

SSE Airtricity Women’s Premier Division: Athlone Town AFC vs Galway United

Date: March 9th, 2024

Kick-off: 7.30pm

Venue: Athlone Town Stadium

We are finally here. The season kicks off this Saturday with Athlone Town taking on Galway United. The FAI Cup champions take on the All-Island Cup champions. Athlone haven’t conceded many goals in Athlone since Ciaran Kilduff took over but Galway will be hoping for a bit of magic to unlock the Athlone defence.

Team News

Athlone Town AFC come into the game with a couple of injury concerns. Chloe Singleton is a doubt having missed training this week and Ciara Glackin is ruled out for a couple of months.

Galway United are expected to have a full squad to choose from.

Past Encounters

Athlone Town and Galway played four times last season and with only four goals coming we expect this game to be tight and the game could be decided by one goal. Galway are very dangerous from set pieces and the Athlone back line will need to be on the top of their game.

Key Players to Watch

For Athlone Town AFC Kerryanne Browne is one to watch for the season ahead and she showed against Peamount in the Presidents Cup what she is capable of. Athlone Town fans can expect to see Kerry excel in the Athlone jersey this season.

For Galway United Eve Dossen is a superb talent and recently returned from an international camp with Ireland u19’s. She can play in midfield or defence and will have a great League of Ireland career ahead of her.
