Fenlon gives imports a run out
PAT FENLON will give his continental trialists a chance to shine in a pre-season friendly tonight.
Because of the club's off-field problems, and the postponement of their Setanta Sports Cup tie with Portadown last week, the Gypsies have yet to play a game this season, so tonight's friendly at home to Longford Town is the first outing of the year.
Bohs fans will be eager to see the club's seven new signings but Fenlon will also run his eye over Spaniard Felipe Guerendez and Hungarian midfielder Robert Kovacs. "We've had the lads training with us but I want to see them in a match situation so they'll get a chance to play some part against Longford and we'll see how they do," said Fenlon.
Longford, hoping to improve on a ninth-place finish in Division One last season, also have a batch of new faces as players like Alvin Rouse and Des Hope have signed for the Town.
Meanwhile Joe Kendrick featured for Bray Wanderers in a 2-2 draw with Waterford United yesterday. The former Newcastle United man has been out of the game since quitting Drogheda United last summer.
