Two of Merville United's brightest prospects have made the step up to join the Sligo Rovers under 15 set up. Sean McAteer and Kailin Barlow will be playing their football across the road in the Showgrounds under the guidance of coaches Conor O'Grady, Marcel Gordon and Paul Masterson.
Both players have proven their ability with Merville's 14 side this season, having helped secure the league title and claiming the under 14 SFAI Connacht Cup.
Sligo Rovers will be gaining two excellent players of differing style; Kailin is developing into a powerful attacking midfielder known from his goalscoring ability while Sean's excellent technical ability on the ball makes him stand out from the crowd.
Both players will join up with the Sligo Leitrim squad that travel to take part in the Kennedy Cup in Limerick in June.
From all at Merville Untied, we wish Sean and Kailin the very best of luck in their move to the Showgrounds.
