ST JOHN’S FC
St John’s returned to action this year for the first time since May, taking on league newcomers Tireragh in Cleveragh. Looking to return to the Super League at the first attempt, the lads knew three points today was the expectation, nothing less. Despite being the better team for the majority of the first half, the home team fell behind after half an hour. A speculative effort from a long-range free kick wasn’t dealt with and the Tireragh forward unmarked in the box made no mistake from the rebound.
St John’s took the momentum in the second half performance and looked to put the West Sligo sides to the sword. Malcolm Reilly’s powerful run into the box couldn’t be stopped and he found skipper Conor Brennan, who couldn’t miss to put the teams’ level. 4-1 was how it finished, St John’s more than value the score and three points. A strong challenge awaits next week as they take on Arrow Harps in Riverstown.
