The 2010 season is St. Patricks Athletic F.C.'s 81st year in existence, and their 59th year in the top division. The previous season the Saints finished 7th, failing to qualify for any European Competition.

Pre-season[edit]

When the 2009 season finished, St Pats underwent a revamp. Most of the squad from the 2009 season was let go, only 5 players from 2009 were kept for 2010.

On 9 December Pete Mahon was appointed manager after successfully leading the Saints out of relegation trouble last season.[1] Pete Mahon signed 13 players during pre-season, creating a good deal of excitement amongst the fans.

The team spent a weekend in Wexford where they defeated Wexford Youths 3–0. Up next were 2 home friendlies against Longford Town F.C., 3–1 and Limerick F.C., 1–1. These were followed by 2 away matches against Waterford United F.C., 0–0 and Bray Wanderers F.C., 1–3.

Team kit[edit]

On 15 January it was announced that St Pats secured a kit deal with Umbro to add 4 years onto the deal already in place.[2] Nissan were announced as the new main sponsors of the club after the deal with Paddy Power ran out. A new home and away jersey were issued for the 2010 season.
