Shamrock Rovers to face Burnley in friendly fixture

Shamrock Rovers have announced a friendly fixture with Premiership side Burnley FC.

This will be a tough test for Stephen Bradley’s men facing such an experienced side with so many International’s involved in the Burnley side.

This will be a pre-season fixture for the Premiership side who have many Irish stars in the squad including – Robbie Brady, Jeff Hendrick, Stephen Ward & Kevin Long.

The game is at Tallaght Stadium on the 14th July (Friday).

Speaking about the fixture Burnley manager Sean Dyche said:

“We’ve decided to stay just outside Dublin, which fitted in with our thinking.

“I flew out there myself to have a look and it’s a great facility, which is the key.

“It’s a bit closer to home and we’re going to link up with a game at the end of the week which is good for our fans should they want to come over.

“It’s a change from the norm. We don’t want to go too far away from our thinking here because we’ve got this new (training) facility which is fantastic.

“But pre-season is a long period and it’s good to get the lads away where everyone is together for five or six days and you get that little bit of bonding work, as well as the physical and tactical and technical work.”
