Coyle goal enough to seal opening pre-season win

8 July 2017

Lewie Coyle's second half goal on debut sealed a 1-0 win over Queen of the South at Poolfoot Farm on Friday afternoon.

Coyle was one of four new first team signings in action in Town's first pre-season friendly, alongside Kyle Dempsey, Harvey Rodgers and Conor McAleny.

Cian Bolger had a header cleared off the line in the first half, with Bobby Grant also going close on two occasions. Uwe Rosler played two seperate teams in both halves, with all players getting a minimum of 45 minutes of action before heading to Austria on Sunday.

Joe Maguire's deep cross was only half cleared by the visiting defence, allowing Coyle - who is on a season-long loan from Leeds United - to volley home from eight yards. 

Town are next in action on Tuesday against German side Karlshurer, with full updates available on the club's social media channels.
