INVESTING IN THE FUTURE
The SRFC Academy is based at Roadstone Group Social Club in Kingswood and delivers an environment that promotes excellence, nurtures the best young Irish talent and produces professional players capable of playing for the SRFC first team and beyond. The SRFC Academy will develop rounded, well educated people that are fully equipped for life as a professional footballer or otherwise.
Since 2013 Shamrock Rovers have been working closely with Roadstone to develop Ireland’s leading Academy facility in their Kingswood base. This will allow the club build the first professional academy in this country. This will enable the club to produce its own talent in the years to come and bring the best young players in Ireland to the club from an early age.
Phase 1 of the Academy opened in February 2017 which has seen the installation of a fully floodlight FIFA Pro Astroturf pitch as well as the upgrading of the existing grass pitches.
Phase 2 will see the addition of a state-of-the-art Football Building. This will support the clubs ambition to attract and develop players with the potential to play at the highest level, and is lead by Shane Robinson who is the Academy Director.
