Manager's Quote

"I thought the team played really well (Friday night) and we did every we could to win the match so I've no complaints.

It was a real Pats' performance, especially in the second half and I could'nt fault the players - they were excellent.

Sporting Fingal present a very different challenge but we're looking forward to it.

It's a big game for us, while we were even with Rovers a few weeks ago they are now 5 points clear so we can't fall too far behind them" - Pete Mahon.
