Fan-favourite Forrester bags first goal since returning to St Patrick's Athletic

The midfielder was on target as the Saints saw off Wexford in the Leinster Senior Cup last night.

ST PATRICK’S ATHLETIC fans were rightly chuffed with themselves after it was announced that Chris Forrester was returning to the club.

The Dubliner became a Saints hero during three years in Inchicore before leaving for Peterborough United in 2015.

And, following a brief spell at Aberdeen, the 26-year-old is Pat’s player once more.

Three days after their hard-fought 1-0 win over Cork City on the opening night of the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division, Harry Kenny’s side took on Wexford in the Leinster Senior Cup last night. 

Forrester, who is still a little short on match fitness, retained his place in a much-changed side, and scored his first goal since rejoining the Richmond Park outfit on 55 minutes with this tidy finish from outside the box. 

Forrester has produced some outrageous finishes over the years, and this free-kick from the halfway line would have been right up there with the best of them had it not been for Wexford goalkeeper Joe Walshe.
