DUBLIN DERBY CUP CLASH March 26th 12:30

ALBERT COLLEGE on the Ballymun Road is the venue this Sunday for the All-Premier Division, Paul McGrath Semi Final cup clash between Bohemians and St Patrick's Athletic.

These traditional Dublin rivals lock horns for the third time this season, having already met twice in the league already.

The Inchicore lads have had the better in both previous derbies, winning both. A 3-1 win away was followed up with a 2-0 win at home.

Under 16's Coach Alan Ryan told stpatsfc.com, ‚ÄúThe lads have put in a lot of hard work this season and it's beginning to pay off. We are now in the business end of the season and this is our first opportunity to reach a final. It is not our only chance of silverware, the League is still there for us and we are still in the All Ireland Cup, but we are only thinking of Sunday we will be fully prepared for the game.‚ÄĚ

Manager Brian Dalton has included in his squad Noel Haverty, Derek Foran and David Fagan, all of whom recently signed Eircom League forms with the senior club.

12:30 signals the start of what will be a very interesting clash.

Why not go along and support these young Saints as they strive to reach the final.

We wish them all the best of luck.
