The first ever Amputee league draws to a close this coming Saturday and whilst Shamrock Rovers can’t be crowned champions they will play their part in deciding which team wins the league.
Rovers go into the final weekend very much the inform team and indeed such is the form of Shamrock Rovers they have ensured that they will not end the season empty handed and deservedly picked up the Manorfield cup in July.
Speaking ahead of this weekend manager Stuart McSweeney said:
“Firstly I want to thank all involved at the club who have supported the squad throughout the season. They have ensured that Shamrock Rovers amputee team have had the perfect environment to work. The fans that came to watch our games have been so supportive and so many people I speak to always want updates on how the squad is getting on. The players have responded brilliantly to how we want to do things at Shamrock Rovers both off and on the pitch and I could not have asked anymore from the squad.
The season started in March and it has been a long season and in the second half of the season the hard work payed off when we won the first piece of silverware on offer.
We are all disappointed that we can’t win the league but with a run of only 1 loss in 8 games including our cup run it puts us in a great position to build on. It is important that we approach the final games with the right attitude as our results will go along way in deciding who becomes champions. In addition there is still one cup left to play for before the final curtain and we have set ourselves that target. I look forward to the final weekend of the season and wish Cork City and Bohemians all the best as they look to become league champions”.
