Athlone Town 0 Waterford 0

On what was a cold windy Good Friday night Athlone Town hosted Waterford United in Lissywollen. Athlone dominated the first half but failed to find the net. In the second half Waterford came into the game but failed to break down a resolute home defence. Man of the match as chosen by supporters was Eric Lavine.

Bray Wanderers 3 Athlone Town 0

Athlone went down 3-0 to Premier Division club Bray in the first round of the League Cup. Athlone started without Ian Rossiter (Family Bereavement) and Davy Byrne (Swollen Knee) but didn’t look out of place in the game until Bray took the lead midway through the first half. Further injuries to Jim Sheridan (Thigh) and Noel McGee (Groin) on the night upset the balance of the team and Bray then took control.
