Longford Town Supporters’ Club Notes (21/05/17)

Sun May 21st 2017


The long trip down to Waterford bore no fruit as an early goal for the hosts left us joyless again. And yet, over two games against the league leaders, only one goal is the difference. So despite the widening gap in the table between the top three and the rest of us, the top three are certainly beatable. A win against Wexford on Saturday night at the City Calling Stadium will help get us back on track. Let’s see you there.


Desi Maguire only presented the April award to Enda Curran at our last home game and already it’s the end of May and so time for our Player of the Month again. The presentation will take place at our first home game in June by a supporters’ club member who will be drawn beforehand. Remember, all paid up members are entered into a draw to make the presentation and is just one of the many reasons to join us.


The June Bank Holiday Monday is just round the corner and while it might mean the start of long holidays for lucky secondary teachers, it means an other chance for us to raise much needed funds at our Car Boot Sale to help keep the club going. Once again, we’re asking for volunteers and even if you can only spare an hour or two , it’d be greatly appreciated. Give Liam Healion a shout and he’ll look after you.


A belated happy birthday to Paddy Donnelly who has managed to survive another year with his sanity intact. As the years whizz past like an express train, Paddy seems to be more involved with each passing month. I’m not sure what his official title in the club is but he seems to cover almost every blade of grass from an organisational point of view. Hope you had the time and energy to blow out the forest of candles before eating some cake (red and black icing, naturally).


It looked like Sinead Keegan has had her fill of moaners. On Sunday last, she posted a wonderful letter on Facebook castigating the non stop moaners. Sinead has been supporting De Town since she was eight and although still a very young lady, her enthusiasm and genuine support has never wavered. A regular at all home and away games, she not only talks the talk but also walks the walk. It was interesting to hear one former and highly respected player say that some followers seem to expect the standard of the top European teams from De Town. We’re a tiny club but we have a very hard working, dedicated group of volunteers,without whom, we’d have no club. When you see fit to voice negative opinions on social media, remember you’re hurting the very ones who are keeping your club afloat. Why not get actively involved with the club and use up the negative energy. We all moan at times but too much becomes boring. Enough.

Supporters’ Club Notes (14/05/2017)

Sun May 14th 2017


Saturday night last was a bad night at the office for De Town. While our opposition may be a single point from the top of the table, they’re certainly a beatable outfit. Yet, they’ve taken all six points from us from our two games. The eternal optimist will say that we halved the deficit this time but it simply wasn’t good enough. While many may say we deserved something from the game, experience has surely taught us that you seldom get what you think you deserve. Again, we fell to an early goal and never recovered. Losing two players to our injury jinx didn’t help either.

In the final few minutes we piled on the pressure and through a combination of superb goalkeeping and the woodwork, we were denied even a share of the spoils. And what all that means is that we’re ahead of Athlone on goal difference with Wexford sitting below both of us. The league table doesn’t make a pretty sight. On Friday night we travel south to face league leaders Waterford in a game that they’re relishing. With our growing injury list and our lack of scores, it’s not a game we’ll relish too much. But then again, football can be a funny old game, as the cliché says and it’d surely bring a smile to our face if we could cause an upset down there. After Waterford, Wexford are next on our home menu.


Enda Curran was the worthy recipient of the April player of the month and he was presented with his trophy by Desi Maguire before kick off on Saturday. Desi really looked the part and had visited the barber earlier to make sure there wasn’t a hair out of place. The effort was really appreciated.

Each month a different member is drawn to make the presentation but if drawn, we don’t expect you to look as neatly shaven as Desi.


Last week, the club hosted various All Ireland finals at school boylevel and as usual all visitors were loud in the their praise of our set up. The question was asked though as to why we don’t host under age internationals at the City Calling Stadium since everyone seems to think we have a top quality set up. Well, the answer is connectivity or lack thereof. Our broadband connection is not up to standard. It’s outrageous that the coverage appears to end of the N5 roundabout. At a recent council meeting there was a long debate about renaming a certain roundabout. Well, maybe “Broadband Ends Here Roundabout” would be a suitable name for the one just before the CCS.


A few people have been in touch asking if we’d have more car boot sales. The simple answer is that we won’t. It’s difficult enough to get volunteers for our Bank Holiday car boot sales so we’ve no plans to extend our range, despite they being so popular and successful. Our next event is on the June bank holiday Monday. The June car boot sale always sees families clearing out attics and garages to make some extra spending money for their holidays. So you can be guaranteed some extra bargains.


Heartiest congratulations to our energetic chairperson Avril Gilchriest on yet another outstanding successful HYPE festival in Longford at the week end. This year she oversaw 140 coaches transport 5,000 young people to the youth festival for what must be the biggest logistical undertaking in the county of the year. The magnitude and scale of the undertaking has to be seen to be believed. Avril, you and your team did a superb job and even though you had to miss the UCD game, we’re mighty proud of you. The Supporters’ Club is certainly in safe hands.


With Avril being unavoidably absent on Saturday night, Emmet Lyons took over as organiser of the half time underage game. Being an experienced Daddy, it was no trouble for Emmet to have his Newtownforbes charges kitted out and ready to rock spot on time. Thinking of the welfare of the youngsters, Emmet also made the wise decision of keeping the boys under cover during the first half of the game due to the heavy rain. All enjoyed their experience hopefully and it’s great to see this tradition revived.

RIP Charlie Walker

Sun May 14th 2017

It is with great sadness, that we learnt of the passing away of Charlie Walker. Charlie was Longford Town’s first manager when we joined the League Of Ireland in the 1984/85 season. He was also manager of St. Patrick’s Athletic from 1979 to 1984 and signed the legendary Paul McGrath from Dalkey Utd. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
