Jesse Devers

  • Sligo Rovers have beaten UCD 3-1 at the Bowl to make the quarter-finals of the FAI Cup.

    Kyle Callan-McFadden, Ronan Coughlan and Mayo man Jesse Devers all found the back of the net for the visitors.

  • Sligo Rovers produced the goods tonight by seeing off Dundalk at Oriel Park to give themselves a chance of European football next season.

     

    Ballina man Jesse Devers got the opening goal in the game after just 10 minutes while Ronan Coughlan added a stunning second deep in stoppage time to ensure the three points for the visitors on a night when the home side never really showed up.

     

    Those goals were enough for Liam Buckley’s side to claim fourth place in the table, which could be enough for a Europa League spot if one of the three sides above them in the table goes on to win the FAI Cup.

     

    That would be a tremendous achievement for a Sligo side who were bottom without a point when the league resumed at the end of July.

  • Two Mayo men have helped Sligo Rovers overcome Shelbourne 2-1 in their SSE Airtricity League Premier Division clash at the Showgrounds.

    Jesse Devers found the back of the net for Liam Buckley's side in the first minute of the game before David Cawley made it 2-nil in the second-half.

    Elsewhere, it finished up scoreless in this afternoon's Munster derby between Waterford and Cork at the RSC.
