Calls For Fresh Approach To Rejuvenate Shannon Soccer Scene

There are calls for a fresh approach to be taken in order to revitalise the local soccer scene in Shannon.

Currently, there are three clubs operating in the town, with Shannon Town, Shannon Olympic and Shannon Hibs all drawing from the area.

All three are currently competing in the Premier Division, but Olympic and Hibs are staring at the relegation trapdoor with just one win between the two clubs this season.


League PRO Jim Madden feels a more combined approach would help create a better structured approach to the game in Shannon.
