Team News

With the exception of Noel Haverty the Saints have a fully fit squad to choose from. Haverty is recovering from a recent hamstring injury and while the young defender was back training this week he is unlikely to feature.

Manager's Quote

“Losing four times to Galway was especially difficult for everyone at the club to take last season and it would be great to get off to a winning start and put those matches behind us.

Pre-season has gone very well, I am very happy with the work ethic and team spirit that's been shown and we'll be looking for more of that tomorrow night.
We're in for a hectic start with five competitive games in just over two weeks but I'd rather be playing matches than training.

Sean Connors' teams are always hard to break down and while Galway, just like all teams, are working off greatly reduced budgets this year they still have some very experienced players in their squad with the likes of Eoin Heary, Barry Ryan, Jamie McKenzie and Bobby Ryan”. - John Gill, Assistant Manager, St Pat's.

A new family stand section will be in operation in Richmond Park for the new season beginning with tomorrow night's game.
