Thu, Feb 08 2018


On the 98th edition of the Extratime.ie Sportscast, presenter Dec Marron and senior reporter Dave Donnelly are joined in-studio by title-winning former Shelbourne defender Dave Rogers.


Liverpudlian Rogers is currently an international academy manager for Liverpool FC, where he heads the club's overseas development programme in Korea.


During a long and successful playing career, Rogers played for clubs in four different European countries but had his most successful spell after moving to Dublin with Shelbourne.


The 46-year-old won three league titles with Shelbourne before moving on owing to the club's financial woes, spending time with Cork City, St Patrick's Athletic and Dundalk among others.


Rogers helped to set up Liverpool's academy structure in India – where he suggested Pat Fenlon take his Shamrock Rovers side on a pre-season tour in 2016 – with I-League side DSK Shivajians


He was manager of DSK's underage sides before taking control of the senior team ahead of the 2016-17 season, where he linked up with former Patsc midfielder Shane McFaul.


Rogers has also spent time coaching the Indian national team under manager Stephen Constantine while on the sub-continent as well as posts in amateur football in Ireland.
