St Patrick's Athletic 0 - West Ham United 1

A deflected Trevor Sinclair free kick on 73 minutes was enough to hand victory to the visitors in this pre-season friendly at Richmond Park today.

It was the home side who created the opening the chance with Jamie Harris latching onto a cross from Paul Byrne with quarter of an hour gone but Steven Bywater proved alert to the danger

The game continued to present chances to both sides and St Pat's were unfortunate not to have taken the lead midway through the second-half when Barry Prenderville struck the crossbar from outside the box.
