FANS TO GET BEHIND TEAM AFTER OPENING DEFEAT
A big crowd of over 2,000 people attended St Patrick's Athletic's opening league game of the 2009 season on Friday night however the Saints went down to Galway United in a shock 0-3 defeat.
Club CEO Richard Sadlier said â€śwhile we were missing a number of key players through injury and suspension it was a disappointing result and we will have to work a lot harder going forwardâ€ť.
St Patrick's Athletic face tough away matches against Cork City on Friday and Sligo Rovers on Saturday march 21st before playing Dundalk FC at Richmond Park on Friday 27th march.
â€śIt's after a bad result like this when you need the support of the fans the most, so I would ask the fans to be patient and come out in force again in support of the team over the coming weeksâ€ť added Sadlier.
