90'
And that's it for me. It was a thoroughly entertaining game, and you can read all about it in my match report which will be up on the main site later this evening!

90'

FULL TIME!

And that's it. Tom Connolly brings this game to an end. The Stevenage fans applaud their players off the pitch...and they deserve it! Shroot comes over to shake their hands.

90'
Almost time for an 8th. Agyemang nutmegs a UCD defender but Shroot cannot collect. He has looked lively since coming on!

88'
Two minutes to go in this tie, and I don't want it to end. Partly because of the entertainment, partly because I'm dreading going out in the rain...

87'

86'

GOAL!

...and low and behold he places it into the top corner. McGinley was rooted for that one. A free kick of the highest order from Greg Tansey.

86'
Hugh Douglas in late on Patrick Agyemang at the edge of the UCD box - Tansey to take.

83'
I've finally caught my breath and am up to date here. Will there be a winner? Both teams look capable of scoring.

79'

Substitution

Dean Clarke replaces Ciaran Nangle for UCD.

78'
Agyemang pulls back to Greg Tansey at the edge of the box who scoops the ball over.

75'
He steps over the ball, steps over it again and he leaves two defenders for dead. He's one on one with McGinley but knocks it wide to take him out of the equation then slots into an open goal from a tight angle. Great composure.

75'

GOAL!

Robin Shroot scores for Stevenage FC.

73'
Free kick out on the right for UCD. Danny Ledwith whips it in with his left. It beats everyone including the keeper and bounces into the net. Soft goal to concede.

73'

GOAL!

Daniel Ledwith scores for U.C.D.

71'
In the build up to Shroots goal, McGinley was played into trouble by his own defence. His clearance cannoned off Agyemang to Shroot who rounded him to score.

71'

GOAL!

The delightfully named Robin Shroot rounds the keeper to slot the ball into the UCD net.

70'

Substitution

Danny Ledwith and Chris Lyons come on for Barry McCabe and Tyrone McNelis for UCD.

70'
Left footed curler from Robin Shoot hits the foot of McGinley's post...

67'
Cross from the left for 'Boro, McGinley punches wide. The second corner comes in and Bondz N'Gala has a free header but heads the ball over.

65'
Hugh Douglas bombs forward down the centre, he keeps going...and going...but is ultimately tackled by the chasing defence. He was too fast for his teammates there who couldn't support him fast enough.

63'
A big shout out to all the lads and lassies on borochat.co.uk looking in. And to Lopo - no sarcasm meant at all! Hope you are enjoying the coverage (but maybe not the scoreline at the moment)

62'

Substitution

Substitutions for Stevenage : Lee Hills, Patrick Agyemang, Jess Parsons and Matthew Ball come on, off go Mark Roberts, Darius Charles, James Dunne and goalscorer Marcus Haber. And that concludes the Stevenage substitutions.

61'
Sean Russell looks likes he's scuffed a cross as he drills the ball across the Stevenage box - but he knows exactly what he's doing as the ball falls to Tyrone McNelis. His shot lacks the same quality and is wide.

61'
...and more subs to come for Stevenage. They stand on the sideline waiting, while Hugh Douglas rescues McGinley who comes but fails to collect.

61'
Nice to see a few Stevenage fans made the journey!!!

60'
Nangle tracks Dominguez as he runs down UCD left, ball is cleared.

58'
Arnold comes out of his box but doesn't clear the ball. Luckily for him, substitute N'Gala is on hand to clear.

54'
We have an open game here now, the next goal (if any) could go either way. Stevenage for their part are putting in a good shift, but a wonder goal and a penalty have UCD ahead.

49'
Sean Russell was taken down at the edge of the box for that penalty, David McMillan rattles it in off the underside of the bar.

49'

PENALTY SCORED!

David McMillan scores for U.C.D from the penalty spot.

46'

Substitution

Bondz N'Gala comes on for Jon Ashton for Stevenage.

46'

Substitution

Sean Russell, Jamie Smyth, Paul O'Conor, Dave McMillan come on for UCD, Paul Corry,Stephen Doyle, Samir Belhout and Gary Burke come off.

46'

Second Half

Stevenage get the second half under way. And here comes the subs.

45'

Half Time

And Tom Connolly brings the first half to a close bang on 45. For a friendly, both sets of players are competitive!

41'
...of course they don't need to get the ball into the box if they do that. Paul Corry with a fierce shot from distance. Steve Arnold gets his fingertips to it, but can only help it further into the top left corner of the net. Cracking goal!

41'

GOAL!

Paul Corry scores for U.C.D.

40'
UCD with a lot of possession in the Stevenage half. They're moving the ball well...until they get into the box...

37'
Lovely dummy from McCabe, even nicer change of direction from Corry and he is taken down. Resulting free comes to nothing.

35'
Corner from Luke Freeman is punched away by Mark McGinley in the UCD goal.

33'
UCD have taken points off all of them this season...not exactly bringing "nothing" to the league is it?

33'
What do Cork City, Derry City, Shamrock Rovers, Sligo Rovers and St Pats have in common??

30'

Substitution

Substitute for Stevenage. Robin Shroot comes on, Felipe Morais goes off. Looked lively did Morais.

30'
Corner for UCD, Burke takes. Belhout controls the ball in the box and fires over. Good chance that, UCD growing into it.

29'
Cross from the left is volleyed over and wide by UCD's Stephen Doyle.

28'
Belhout breaks - support slow in arriving so he shoots from distance. He got over it, but the ball fires to Arnold's left.

25'
Darius Charles gallops into the box and slides the ball across the six yard line. Haber's outstretched leg is inches too short.

20'
Gary Burke breaks into the Stevenage box, but is shrugged off the ball.

19'
...comes to nothing...

19'
Corner to Stevenage...

17'
The rain coming down heavily now...players starting to slide.

15'
Great ball over the top from UCD releases Samir Belhout - he is through on goal, but alas offside.

14'
James Dunne bursts through the middle of the park, but Barry McCabe takes him down. Nothing comes of the resulting free.

13'
Paul Corry with a left footed free kick from deep into the box. Steve Arnold has enough time to drop the ball and catch it again. Better from UCD.

9'
...almost two. Good work again from Morais down the right. His cross evades everyone and finds Luke Freeman at the back post. With a flash of his orange boots, he volleys a fierce shot straight at McGinley. The keeper saves at point blank, but might not have known too much about it. All Stevenage so far.

7'
Just before the goal James Dunne had a shot from distance charged down by Ciaran Nangle. From the throw, Morais crosses from the right for Haber to apply the simplest of headers.

7'

GOAL!

Simple header for Marcus Haber, One Nil to Stevenage.

5'
Free kick out the left wing to Stevenage. Felipe Morais crosses, Paul Corry comfortably heads clear.

3'
UCD have had most of the ball, but in their own half. Stevenage pressing high up the field.

2'
UCD togging out 1 to 11 tonight - all that time learning their squad numbers gone to waste!!! oh well...

1'

GAME ON!

UCD get the game underway and play from left to right.

0'
The teams are on the pitch - UCD to kick off...

0'
So, no place for former Longford Town striker Don Cowan in the Stevenage lineup. Miguel Cominguez starts right back for them with Marcus Haber the lone striker in a likely 4-2-3-1 formation.

Lineups are in and are being inputted as I type. They will appear either side of this page any minute now!

A misty night here in The Bowl - not many here as yet. UCD have a full panel warming up, while Stevenage are practicing their crosses away to my left. Twenty minutes to kick off, and I'll have starting teams as soon as I can get my hands on a teamsheet!

Of course you might not agree with my earlier sentiments... for you the footballing interest may lie elsewhere! If so, by clicking the "Live Updates" link at the top of the page, you will be whisked away to live updates from all the other aforementioned matches...

I'm Brian Fitzgerald and I'll be navigating you through this evening's footballing feast - and I guarantee* goals galore! *not an actual guarantee

Lithuania? Turners Cross? Athlone? Ferrycarrig Park? PAH... Everyone knows the REAL footballing action to be had on these shores tonight (and further afield) is at The Bowl in Belfield! Stevenage FC are the opponents for UCD in their final friendly of their pre-season trip to Ireland.
