Match Preview by James Donnelly

Bray Wanderers FC v Longford Town FC
Friday 14th June 2019 | Kick-off: 7.45pm
Carlisle Grounds

Longford Town make the trip to the Carlisle Grounds for the first time in three years tonight as they take on Bray Wanderers in a 7.45pm kick off.

De Town go into tonight’s game off the back of a dramtic 1-0 win over Wexford FC at the City Calling Stadium last weekend. A 91st minute goal from super sub Jamie Doyle broke Wexford hearts and gained all 3 points for Neale Fenn and co.

Bray narrowly lost out to Shelbourne last week. A well taken free kick from Karl Moore early in the first half was the sole effort that seperated the sides after 90 minutes.

With Wanderers currently in 6th on 25 points, 8 points behind 2nd place Longford, a win tonight is vital for the home side. Former Longford Town player, assistant & caretaker Manager Gary Cronin is Manager of Bray and will no doubt be looking for a response from his team.

Earlier in the season, Longford had a comfortable 2-0 victory at the City Calling Stadium over our opponents tonight. Neale Fenn will be hoping that the team can continue their fine form ad come away from the Carlisle Grounds with all 3 points before the break.

In terms of team news for De Town, Paul O’Conor and Kevin Knight are both out with Aodh Dervin doubtful.

For Bray, midfielder Brandon McCann is doubtful.


Longford Town celebrate scoring during our last encounter with Bray Wanderers in which De Town won 2-0.

Saturday Night Fever at the City Calling Stadium as Longford Town squeeze past Wexford with a late, late goal by Jamie Doyle.


It was a late, late show at the City Calling Stadium tonight as Jamie Doyle’s vital goal netted all 3 priceless points – and if you wondered just how important that goal was….check out the pics from the scoring of the goal to the unbridled celebrations afterwards.

The attendances have increased this season – it’s great to see our older supporters still enjoying the fare but it’s even more encouraging seeing so many younger fans turning up regularly to experience the real live atmosphere of the City Calling Stadium.

The talented future stars of Longford and District Schoolgirls added greatly to tonight’s enjoyment at the City Calling Stadium. Apart from showcasing their undisputed footballing skills at half time, they also provided a guard of honour for both sets of players after the game – which made some of the players feel like rock stars. The girls are a very polite, friendly bunch of well disciplined and skillful footballers and they’ve a super future – a credit to their management and parents.

Dean Byrne received his May Player of the Month trophy from Ciara McGuinness, aided by Shane Connolly. Shane, a son of the famed Pauric Connolly is also manager of Cherry Orchard FC, brought along his footie mad daughter for her second game this week at the City Calling Stadium to see De Town win again!! The night was also proved to be a bit of a reunion for Shane and our fabulous net minder Lee Steacy – Shane maintains he spotted Lee’s talent years ago and signed him up when only a young fella.

And that about concludes the pictorial record for an other memorable Saturday night game at the City Calling Stadium.

RTE’s Late Late season may be over….but ours certainly isn’t !!

Thanks to everyone for coming out tonight to support De Town – it’s hugely appreciated- thanks too to the lads….but please…don’t leave it as late again, it’s not good for the auld hearts… C’mon De Town!!
