Pre-Seson Report: Galway 2-0 Saints

The Super Saints continued their preparations for the new season with a good workout on a difficult pitch in Roscommon.

Manager Tim Clancy handed a first appearance for the club to new goalkeeper Joseph Anang just hours after he joined on loan from West Ham.

The starting team featured 8 new recruits along with Jamie Lennon, Darragh Burns & captain on the day Chris Forrester.

The best chance of the opening 45 fell to St Pat's, Anto Breslin's pass found mark Doyle, the winger took a great touch but shot over.

John Caulfield's side hit the front seven minutes after the break thanks to a brilliant first time finish from midfielder Mikey Rowe after a good Galway attack down the right

Both managers rung the changes on the hour mark, Tim Clancy made 11 substitutes in total, among them, was a first senior appearance for 16 year old midfielder Adam Murphy.

Another academy graduate Kyle Robinson had the ball in the net in the second-half but it was ruled out for offside, before the home side doubled their lead with 15 minutes left thanks to a good finish from new signing Jordan Adeyemo.

The pre-season action continues on Wednesday night against Wexford before the visit of Cork City on Saturday.
