Report

Series 1-5 28 March-26 April 2021

Athlone Town and Shelbourne were the early pacesetters in the SSE Airtricity League First Division in 2021. Athlone had won four of their first five matches and Shelbourne three with both teams undefeated. Also undefeated were UCD and new team from Limerick, Treaty United who had both won two of their five matches. Cabinteely and Cobh Ramblers were in mid-table while still seeking a win were Bray Wanderers, Galway United and Wexford FC, with Wexford still pointless. Cork City had three points from one win and four losses, below Bray (4 draws) and Galway (3 draws).

Series 6 30 April – 1 May 2021

Athlone Town lost their first match of the season, 1-2 at home to Cabinteely, but still held top spot as Shelbourne could only draw 2-2 at home to Treaty United who remained in fourth. UCD leapfrogged Shelbourne into second with a 6-0 win at Wexford FC. Cabinteely kept touch of pace at the top with that win at Athlone while Galway United’s 4-0 win away to Cobh Ramblers saw them jump two places into sixth. Cobh dropped down below both Galway and Bray Wanderers following that defeat and Bray’s 0-0 draw at home to Cork City. Wexford FC remained pointless at the foot of the table.

After 6 Series of the 2021 SSE Airtricity League Shamrock Rovers and Sligo Rovers were joint top on identical records with 14 points from 6 matches and a goals for-goals against record of 9-4. St. Patrick’s Athletic were just behind in third also on 14 points and goal difference of +5 but with 8 goals scored to the two Rovers’ 9. Surprise packet Finn Harps were in fourth with wins over Bohemians and Dundalk in their opening two matches. At the other end of the table Derry City were struggling with only 2 points from their 6 matches and Dundalk and Waterford also in trouble with only three points to their names. Drogheda United (8 points), Bohemians (7 points) and Longford Town (5 Points) were in mid-table.

Series 7 April 23 to April 24 2021

St. Patrick’s Athletic moved above Shamrock Rovers into first place on goal difference following a 2-0 win at Finn Harps, as Rovers beat fierce rivals Bohemians 2-1. Sligo Rovers dropped into third following their first defeat of the season in the North West derby at home to Derry City. Derry’s fellow relegation strugglers Dundalk and Waterford also picked up valuable wins against Drogheda United in the Louth derby and Longford Town respectively, which dropped Longford Town into the bottom two.

Series 8-9 April 30 to May 3 2021

With two series in a week, Shamrock Rovers took over sole position in first with a 2-0 win at Finn Harps and a 3-0 win over Waterford, who dropped to bottom spot following another big loss three days previously, also 3-0, to Dundalk. St. Patrick’s Athletic slipped to second with a draw at Sligo Rovers who remained in third, two points ahead of Finn Harps, who put some light between themselves and fifth-placed Drogheda United with a win at the Brandywell against arch-rivals Derry City. The two Louth Clubs were level on 10 points each in mid-table with Drogheda United picking up two draws and Dundalk drawing at Longford as well as that win over Waterford.
