Possible Fixture Change For Derry City Game
- Mon, Oct 31, 2005 @ 21:23
The eircom League have contacted St Patrick's Athletic to advise the Club of a possible change to our next away league match against Derry City.
The fixture is scheduled for Friday, November 11th, but RTÉ television is hoping to screen the match live. The only free allocation is on Monday evening, November 14th, as screening the match on Friday would clash with Setanta's coverage of Shelbourne and Cork City.
Club secretary, Stephen Connolly, spoke with stpatsfc.com tonight voicing his concerns with the possible fixture change, “it will be an inconvenience to both players and supporters who have already arranged time off with their employers and overnight accommodation in Derry.”
“If the match is to go ahead, it will be a 7.05pm kick-off, and we hope to talk to the League tomorrow to confirm this possible change.
