Waterford’s Lee Grace is set for his UEFA Europa League debut with Shamrock Rovers on Thursday (July 12) at the Tallaght Stadium, Dublin.

Carrickbeg native Grace, who is a prodigy of Waterford District League club Carrick United, is part of the Shamrock Rovers squad that are preparing for a home first leg clash against Swedish outfit AIK in the Europa League first qualifying round.

The 25-year-old central defender signed for Shamrock Rovers from Galway United last summer.

Rovers come into the game following a scoreless draw away to Cork City in the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division on Friday.

The game kicks off at 7:05pm, with live coverage on eir Sport 2 starting at 7pm.
