Kieran Waters netted a brace to propel Shamrock Rovers into the Europa League second qualifying round thanks to a 3-0 aggregate victory over Progres on Tuesday.

Following a goalless first leg in Luxembourg at the end of June, David Webster put the League of Ireland side ahead midway through the first half at the Tallaght Stadium.

Waters added his side's second just before the break and made sure of the victory after 57 minutes as Pat Fenlon's Hoops progressed into the second round which gets under way later this month.
