"We are really looking forward to the St. Patrick's Day Showcase. The rivalry is continuing to grow between the Clovers & United with us now having played each other 3 times previously and both teams recording a win & a draw each. Savannah Clovers have built a quality squad since our 2017 St. Patrick's Day match and this year's meeting will be a tough fixture for sure which we are really looking forward to. In addition this showcase match will have a bit of extra excitement to it now that we are officially competing against each other in the Southeast conference of the United Premier Soccer League. We look forward to another great match and the experience of this year's St. Patrick's Day meeting against the Clovers." Alan Bahadori, LUFC Executive Director
