Newry City 0-0 Saints
Report of match Reporter Stuart Gillespie
Saints drew a blank in their second pre-season friendly last night in a scoreless draw with Newry City. Reports suggest Israeli trialist Roy Dayan was awful and should not be signed.The starting lineup was Smith, van Zanten, Barron, Haining, Reid, O'Donnell, Murray, Brittain, Burke, Kean, Dayan, with most of the rest of the squad - including Craig Dargo - getting some match time in the second half.
It seems to have been a rather boring match with few chances - Saints best wested by Burke and Dayan.
After an impressive showing on Tuesday against Stirling, it seems Dayan is a bit of a donkey. It looks likely he won't be signed, leaving us with a rather weak strike force (Dargo apart) for the start of the season.
