Darragh Markey caps off brilliant counter-attack goal for St. Patrick's Athletic
St. Patrick's Athletic forward Darragh Markey capped off a remarkable counter-attack goal for the Saints during their 1-1 draw with Bohemians on Friday night.
Markey scored just before half-time with Danny Mandroiu smashing home a fantastic equaliser for Bohs to bring the Gypsies back into the game and earn a draw for Keith Long's side.
Darragh Markey wins the ball, plays it forward and continues running until he finds himself unmarked to head home Gary Shaw’s perfect cross. This a great goal from last night! #Saints2019 pic.twitter.com/eoJSlEOw2o

The draw leaves Bohemians in third spot on the League of Ireland table, six points behind joint leaders Dundalk and Shamrock Rovers, and defender Andy Lyons believes the club is the best place for young players to play in Ireland.
“The club has shown that if you work hard, you will get your chance," Andy Lyons told the Bohemians club website.
"I think we’ve the best youth system in the country. Every young player should want to come to Bohs. The management make you believe in yourself and you want to repay the faith shown to you.
“You are made feel part of a family and if you’re good enough, you will be given an opportunity.”
