Bohemians had no answer to a superb first-half display from St Patrick's Athletic who secured the SSE Airtricity U17 League Champions in fine style with a 4-0 victory at Richmond Park.

Ben McCormack notched an impressive brace and Jamie Doyle add a third to see the home side go in 3-0 ahead at the break.

Troy Stedman added a fourth in the final minute as St Pat's claimed a treble of under-age titles following their victories in the U13 & U15 leagues.

Pat's sparked into life after 26 minutes through a well-worked goal, as Darragh Burns turned two defenders and timed his pass to perfection to provide McCormack with a simple finish from 10 yards out.

Five minutes from the break, Pat's scored again as Cian Kelly's pass found the head of Doyle, who flicked the ball over goalkeeper Kian Lacchia from the edge of the area. McCormack soon added another to effectively seal victory.
