FAI Umbro Intermediate Cup, 1st Round
Attention for Brian McCarthy and co turns to the FAI Intermediate Cup and another big test for the Saints as Malahide United make the trip to Porterstown Road on Sunday Morning. Hoping blue will certainly be the colour, confidence will be high after seeing off the challenges of Tolka Rovers and Glebe North last week.
McCarthy's side enjoyed a decent cup run last season, only to come undone in the semi finals at Tolka and are hoping for a smooth road to the final at the Aviva Stadium next year. Though the Saints manager knows they won't have it all their own way.
"Malahide are a quality side, we are going to see plenty of them this season being in the same league so we have to approach this game the same way." Said Brian. "We were delighted to pick up the six points last week but that will count for precious little if we can't keep our feet on the pedal. As good as it was to win our first home game last Sunday against Glebe, we were shaky enough at times and we knew to enjoy the win but also knew a big effort was needed in training to make sure mistakes we made aren't repeated."
The club have announced this week that it is to reward supporters who have purchased the Saints season ticket, by giving them free entry into the game. Amission €5 - Children free.
