Live Updates for Galway United -v- Finn Harps

Updates by Pete Kelly

90'

FULL TIME!

The game has ended between Galway United and Finn Harps.

90'

It was privelege to watch a live game here at EDP today, plenty of honest endeavour all round

88'

Last few mins here, good to get the season underway - I would think the players are delighted to get through it with no injuries and all to play for in the coming weeks

84'

Goal really well taken by Lomoto, following Lee McLaughlin's howler with the backpass

84'

GOAL!

Francely Lomboto (Galway United) scores.

82'

Substitution

Ethan Connolly (in) - Stephen Christopher (out) (Galway United).

81'

Substitution

Liam Corcoran (in) - Christopher Horgan (out) (Galway United).

77'

The early season rust is very evident throughout, but only to be expected - 

72'

Substitution

Stephen Christopher (in) - Mikie Rowe (out) (Galway United).

71'

Corner to Galway, Hurley doesn't beat the first man and it's cleared

68'

Good running 'off the ball' by Wilson Waweru opened the pitch up for Duggan, but his promising run was not matched by his final effort, whcih taered off tamely, wide

65'

With both sides essentially cancelling each other out, it is hard to knwo what the managers are taking from it!?

58'

Speculative shot from Seymour never threatens Horgan's goal

54'

Kevin Horgans springs into action for the first time today when he pounches Sean Boyd's pile drive from 20 yards, good shot and a crackning save

50'

Already the 2nd half team for Galway look a lot more agressive and pacier than first half 

46'

SECOND HALF

The second half between Galway United and Finn Harps has started.

45'

Galway 2nd half starting; Kevin Horgan, Chris Horgan, Maurice Nugent, Mikie Rowe, Shane Duggan, Conor mcCormack, David Hurley, Killina Brouder, Mikey Place, Wilson Waweru, Francely Lomboto

45'

HALF TIME

It is half-time between Galway United and Finn Harps.

45'

On the stroke of HT, Galway almost score as Harps get themselves in a tangle, with Kelly and Cunningham involved Ht called before corner can be taken

42'

As you would expect, there has been a fair amount of error in the opening half, but plenty of application from both sides

40'

First half coming to a close, Galway's 2nd half team worming up on the side line, 

32'

Galway pressing with two more corners in succession, 

26'

Padraic Cunningham just shows why he could be a real threat in this division as he rounds the Harps defence, but it just runs away from him - looked sharp though

24'

Real chance for Harps, Jamie heads over, perhasp Kearns shoule have claimed that one - Finn Harps having a good spell of possession

21'

Adam Foley with Harp's first shot in anger and it's well saved by Conor Kearns

20'

Galway fans will be delighted to see Stephen Walsh line out in a back three, interestingly as a 'trialist' whas played for them for about ten years previosly 

17'

First attack of note for the home side, with Keating getting free on the right, a corner was cinceded, with a second in close succession, but cleared

15'

Lively start here, no shortage of effort form either side, but patterns emerging so far

6'

As its pre-season, the playing personnell will be in dissarray a bit, we'll do our best!! Galway will field a 2nd team in 2nd half while Harps have a bench full to liberate at some point
