BOHEMIANS BOWED OUT of the Uefa Youth League after losing out 1-0 (2-1 on aggregate) against PAOK FC in tonight’s second leg tie in Thessaloniki.

After drawing 1-1 earlier this month in Dalymount Park in the first leg of their round of 32 clash, Bohemians needed to score in the second leg to progress but instead fell to a narrow defeat.

The breakthrough arrived for the Greek side in the 50th minute when PAOK striker Dimitrios Panidis netted and that transpired to be the only goal of the game.

In a scoreless first half the best chance for Bohemians fell to Dawson Devoy from the edge of the area but they were grateful to the intervention of goalkeeper Sean Bohan at the other end for denying PAOK and Andrew Lyons got back on another occasion to make a vital clearance.

Bohemians rang the changes in the second half as they went in search for an equaliser but despite Evan Ferguson going close near full-time, they slipped to a narrow defeat and made their exit from the competition.
