St Pats 3 Man City EDS 2
St Patrick's Athletic enjoyed a comfortable 3-1 win over Patrick Vieira's Manchester City Elite Development Squad at Richmond Park, Inchicore.
Pats fielded a mix of youth and experience and were 3-1 at half-time.
Greg Bolger played a brilliant through-ball for Chris Forrester, who finished coolly past City keeper Billy O'Brien.
Pats doubled their lead through Conan Byrne, who headed home from Killian Brennan's pass. City replied, however, through captain George Glendon, before Byrne claimed his second of the night before half-time.
David Faupala netted for City in the second half, but the Saints held out for the win.
