(Please note earlier kick-off time of 7.30pm)

Tonight is your final chance to see a competitive game at Dalymount in 2017 as Bohemians host St Patrick’s Athletic in the SSE Airtricity U19 League final.

Graham Lawlor’s U19s topped the Northern Division this season and have beaten Limerick in the quarter-finals and Sligo Rovers in the last four to bring them to tonight’s decider.

Graham, Craig Sexton and their team of players have put an enormous amount of effort into this season, so we hope we can rely on the support of as many of you as possible at tonight’s game as they look to give it one final push.

As it is an official FAI cup final, there is an admission charge of €5 which also applies to members.

Lawlor said: “The players have had another fantastic season and to finish top of our division is a great achievement in itself.

“We’ve then come through two tough teams to reach the final and it would be great if they could cap off a great season with a win.

“It obviously adds a little something extra when you are playing a derby and I’m sure St Pat’s will bring a few fans to Dalymount with them.

“Pat’s have had a really good season themselves, coming through a difficult semi-final against UCD only a few days ago.

“We’ve had a number of players go up to the first-team throughout the year, so I think it shows how well the entire squad has done as the first-team manager Keith Long is great for promoting the youth.

“We had several players involved in the final game of the season which was great but now we need to focus and hopefully end the season with some silverware.”

Jimmy Mowlds’ U17s also had an excellent season and Cork City needed a penalty shootout to beat them after a 0-0 draw in their SSE Airtricity U17 League final at Turner’s Cross on Monday.

While Mowlds’ young guns were bitterly disappointed to lose the shootout 4-2, they can reflect fondly on a campaign which saw them win away ties against Shamrock Rovers and Waterford in their difficult route to the final.
