Pre-Season Friendly Match
Sligo Rovers 3 – 2 Limerick FC
Limerick Scorers: Derek O’Brien, Dawid Janczyk.
Monday 13th February 2012
Limerick FC had three trialists starting this game, played at Terryland Park, Derek O’Brien and the two players from CSKA Moscow, Dawid Janczyk and Lubos Kalouda.
O’Brien scored to give Limerick FC an early lead. On twenty minutes Raffaele Cretaro made it one each when he got to a cross ahead of Pat Purcell and scored from close range. As the half came to a close Sligo Rovers scored two. Firstly, a good passing move got Alan Keane into the penalty area and his shot across the goal found the bottom corner. For the third, Quigley got past Andrew Bhandarkar on the right and his deep cross was met perfectly by Cretaro to make it 3-1.Dawid Janczyk, 13/02/2012Lubos Kalouda, 13/02/2012
Limerick FC upped their game in the second half. Paudie Quinn was just wide from a cross by O’Brien. On twenty minutes Janczyk was found by a pass from Joe Gamble and from the edge of the area fired a fierce shot for a great goal that had the Limerick fans chanting “sign him up, sign him up…”
The two trialists from CSKA will train with Limerick FC on Wednesday evening.
