Next Match

Athlone Town play host to league leaders Shelbourne on Sunday 25th May. Kick off 3pm. Manager Dermot Lennon will be without Ciaran Kelly (shoulder) and Niall Scullion (knee) as they look to get a confidence boosting home win against the team that many expect to win the First Division. Shelbourne are on a very good run at the moment having secured 12 points from 12 in their last four games including an impressive 3-1 defeat of Dundalk despite playing over 80 minutes of the match with 10 men.
