Pat's striker Ryan Guy recently launched the St Pat's challenge in two further schools in Clondalkin - the Talbot Senior School, Bawnogue and St Peter's Apostle School, Neilstown.

Over 100 students from these schools will be involved in the Challenge which will help them to improve their soccer skills over 5 weeks in a fun but challenging way.

The course in Clondalkin is run in partnership with Clondalkin Youth Services, it is generously sponsored by Pfizer and it has anti-bullying as its key theme.

“Ni neart le cur le cheile” – or strength in unity is the motto on St Pat's club crest and at the school visits children are urged to look out for each other both on and off the pitch.

On meeting the students, Ryan talked about growing up in California, getting interested in all sports, developing a love for soccer and wanting to play football in Europe.

He talked about making the big move to Ireland and signing for St Pat's, he advised all youngsters present “to work hard and follow their dreams”.

Up to 700 young people from local schools are expected to complete the St Pat's Soccer Challenge.

On completion of the challenge, students receive a certificate of achievement from the club as well as a mini season ticket for the 2010 League of Ireland season at St Pat's.
