BOHEMIANS v SHAMROCK ROVERS VIRTUAL DERBY

Virtual Dublin Derby

Bohemians and Shamrock face off in a virtual Dublin tonight at 8pm as Keith Ward takes on Aaron McEniff.

The game, a collaborative effort between Balls.ie and Teneo Communications, will be broadcast on Balls.ie’s Facebook page and is a fundraiser in aid of Pieta House.

We urge those who can to donate generously to Pieta House, a very worth cause, particularly in these challenging times.

To be in with a chance of winning Wardy’s signed jersey, a signed Keith Ward Bohemians jersey, all you have to do is upload a screenshot of your Pieta House donation and tweet @ballsdotie using the hashtag #DublinDerby.

Looking ahead to tonight’s game, Wardy said: “All football fans are finding this period tough and it’s the same for players.

“We all look forward to our Friday nights, walking out on the pitch and hearing the crowd get behind you from the start.

“We all live for Friday nights under the lights at Dalyer and we’re all missing them right now. You don’t realise just how lucky you are to be a footballer getting that support every week until it’s taken away from you.

“I was looking forward to maybe another three years playing at the top in the league but it might be down to two now!

“Nothing beats a real derby, they’re magic and they’re the fixture every player and fan looks out for every year.

“But this is bit of craic and I’m looking forward to it. Hopefully it gives our fans something to look forward to too and helps take people’s mind off what is a tough time at the moment.

“Any win over Rovers is worth celebrating so hopefully I can do the club and fans proud tonight!”
