Derry Meet St Pat's In U19 League Final

  • Sat, Apr 25, 2015 @ 13:08

The SSE Airtricity U19 League Final takes place this afternoon when Derry City and St Patrick's Athletic meet at Maginn Park, Buncrana (5pm).

For the first time since the U19 League started in 2011-12 there will be a new name on the Dr Tony O'Neill Cup as Cork City failed in their bid for four successive titles when they were beaten 3-2 by Derry City at the quarter-final stage.

Both finalists came through a very competitive Northern Elite Division where they finished second and third behind divisional winners Bohemians. In the play-offs, which featured the top four from the two regional divisions St Pat's beat Waterford United 3-1 while Derry were ending Cork's quest for four-in-a-row.

In the semi-finals Derry were 5-2 winners over Shamrock Rovers while St Pat' defeated Limerick 3-0.

The sides have met three times already this season. The two league games ended 0-0 and 2-2 while, in the Enda McGuill Cup, Derry eventually went through 6-5 on penalties following a 0-0 draw after extra-time. Derry went on to reach the cup final but lost to UCD in the decider.

Ireland fans will be keen to learn that the Derry City squad includes Patrick McClean, younger brother of Ireland International James McClean, and Ireland U19 International manager, Paul Doolin, will be among the spectators.
