Jesse Devers

  • Sligo Rovers have beaten UCD 3-1 at the Bowl to make the quarter-finals of the FAI Cup.

    Kyle Callan-McFadden, Ronan Coughlan and Mayo man Jesse Devers all found the back of the net for the visitors.

  • This April, entrepreneur and former League of Ireland Premier Division star Jesse Devers will undertake a walking challenge in aid of the national charity FirstLight. Established in 1976, FirstLight offers free professional counselling support and information to families in Ireland who have experienced the sudden, unexpected death of their child from 0 to18 years.

    Jesse, a native of Ballina, is a former Manulla and Sligo Rovers forward and recently entered the business world with his luxury hairstyle brand, Flye Hair, in February.

    The challenge will entail Jesse walking a mile per day for 30 days and nominating three new people per day to join him remotely in the challenge and make a donation to FirstLight.

    The challenge will be completed while always adhering to the COVID-19 restrictions relating to distance and social contacts. Jesse has established a GoFundMe page where he is encouraging people to donate what they can.

    All proceeds will go directly to FirstLight to provide free professional counselling for suddenly bereaved parents and families across Ireland.

    Jesse joined Michael D McAndrew on Sunday Sport this afternoon.

  • Sligo Rovers produced the goods tonight by seeing off Dundalk at Oriel Park to give themselves a chance of European football next season.

     

    Ballina man Jesse Devers got the opening goal in the game after just 10 minutes while Ronan Coughlan added a stunning second deep in stoppage time to ensure the three points for the visitors on a night when the home side never really showed up.

     

    Those goals were enough for Liam Buckley’s side to claim fourth place in the table, which could be enough for a Europa League spot if one of the three sides above them in the table goes on to win the FAI Cup.

     

    That would be a tremendous achievement for a Sligo side who were bottom without a point when the league resumed at the end of July.

  • Two Mayo men have helped Sligo Rovers overcome Shelbourne 2-1 in their SSE Airtricity League Premier Division clash at the Showgrounds.

    Jesse Devers found the back of the net for Liam Buckley's side in the first minute of the game before David Cawley made it 2-nil in the second-half.

    Elsewhere, it finished up scoreless in this afternoon's Munster derby between Waterford and Cork at the RSC.
