Team news ahead of St.Patrick’s Athletic clash

Bray Wanderers and St.Patrick’s Athletic meet again this Friday night for the 4th competitive game in all competitions this season between the sides. The Saints came out on top in the Leinster Senior Cup clash during pre-season while the Wanderers won the opening game of the season in Richmond Park. The most recent meeting on Easter Monday in the EA Sports Cup saw the Saints progress after a penalty shootout.

Last week the Wanderers travelled to Cork to face the league leaders where we lost 2-1, a game which Seagulls Head Coach Harry Kenny was disappointed not to take any points from the league leaders,

“We were disappointed not to get anything from last weeks game,whilst Cork City dominated the first half we had Peter Cherrie to thank to be only one goal down going into the break.The goal itself was a very soft penalty and it looked as though the referee had given a free to us as none of the Cork players even looked for anything, they seemed just as surprised as us when it was awarded.Our second half performance was much better as we dominated for long spells, creating a number of chances.

We look forward to St Pats coming to the Carlisle grounds tomorrow night in what should be another tough game.”
Harry Kenny was given some good news on the injury front this week as Conor Earley, Kevin Lynch and Hughie Douglas have all returned to training.
Kick off in the Carlisle Grounds on Friday night is at 7:45pm. Gates will open at 5:30pm for our Family Festival of Fun which features inflatables, balloon artists and face painters.
