The Posh youth team begin their first pre-season game slowly; Dieudonne Longalonga is booked after a few minutes for a rash challenge. A UCD player is brought down in the box, and Colm Crowe steps up and sends Luke O’Reilly the wrong way. Robert Duggan impresses for the visitors, creating a half chance for Jonathan Edwards. In the second half, with Posh dominating the right-side of the pitch, Duggan bursts forwards and slips the ball past the goalkeeper, only to be judged offside; soon after Seán Coyne blocks a powerful shot. A mix-up in the UCD defence lets Tye Phillips through on goal, and he levels the match with a cool finish. In the final minutes UCD’s Matt Collins appears to have been brought down in the box, only for referee Ben Connelly to wave play on. Despite the referee leaving the ground the sides have a penalty shootout to find a winner: with the score only 1-1 after 4 penalties each, UCD captain Liam Taynor cheekily chips home. After the match Gavin Strachan said, “We got stronger as the game went on and it was a good run-out. The lads have been training hard and they showed good fitness levels.”
