Late Goals Leave Athlone Shel Shocked

Saturday 25th September 2010. Airtricity League Division 1
Athlone Town 0-2 Shelbourne

A lack lustre performance from both sides looked destined to end scoreless until a 71st minutes penalty proved to be not only the first goal of the match but the 1st actual shot on target of the game!
Having previously had 2 penalty claims turned down, Shels will feel it was deservedly 3rd time lucky.

Athlones heads were well and truly down when Shels took advantage to double their tally. It was harsh for Town who battled hard up to the peno and also were forced into an early substitition when winger Shane Fitzgerald ripped his leg open against the advertising hoardings and with bone exposed was forced off. Hopefully Shane makes a full and speedy recovery

Paddy Collins, David Breen and Stephen Relihan go in chase of Shals captain David McGill
