View Full Version : No Room for Rovers (thank god !)

15/09/2003, 11:36 AM
Bray Town Council are expected to block any proposal for Premier Division nomads Shamrock Rovers, whose tenancy at Richmond Park was brought to an end by St Patrick’s Athletic this week, to play their home games at Bray Wanderers’ Carlisle Grounds venue.

Rovers were operating at the Inchicore venue this season while their new base at Tallaght was being completed.

However the Hoops are now homeless after the arrangement with St. Pats was terminated with immediate effect following crowd trouble at the recent Shamrock Rovers-Bohemians derby match.

Bray Town Council, owners of the Carlisle Grounds, are unlikely to accede to any request from Rovers to use the facility for the remaining two months of the season.

Shamrock Rovers have led a nomadic existence for almost two decades since vacating Glenmalure Park in Milltown in the mid-eighties and other temporary homes have included Tolka Park, the RDS and the Morton Stadium in Santry before the brief but ill-fated residency in Inchicore.

95 % (or so) or the Rovers fans, sure i know a good few. Just the very small element who are hell bent on causing trouble. We had it a few seasons back when they came out to play us and we dont want any repeat scenes.

I know the extra income whould have been very handy but im sure we can survive without it !

Did anyone hear the Rovers fan on 106fm last night ? some very valid points but the scumbags have labelled all Rovers fans - which is wrong but they have done nothing what so ever about it so that life !
