VALUABLE POINT

De Town remain top of the League following the scoreless draw at Tolka Park on Friday evening. The game was brought forward to a 5.45pm pm kick off due to problems with the Shels floodlights, the same problem saw their Cup game on Tuesday night postponed.
Scoreless draws sometimes means a boring match but not this top of the table clash. It was a vital game for both clubs and one which Shels really needed to win. Played on a windswept and wet evening in front of almost 800 fans (a large proportion from Longford ), the game was certainly not lacking in drama. Both sides had chances with Shels hitting the post and then one of their players heading over from what looked was a certain goal, following a 25 yard volley. We too came close especially with efforts from Shaw, Hynes and O’Connor. The very vocal travelling support certainly played their part and it was they who were clearly the happiest when the final whistle sounded. It was a hard fought, dogged battle and to come away still three points clear, another clean sheet and with a vastly superior goal difference made for a relaxed and early trip down the M4.

Tolka Park endured a windswept and wet autumnal night when De Town supporters travelled in huge numbers to a hastily re-arranged early kick off.

After a tense and nervy game, it was De Town supporters who were singing loudest after the scoreless draw which leaves us still top of the League.

Shelbourne match brought forward

Following instruction from the FAI received at 7:45 this evening; and to facilitate Shelbourne F.C, Longford Town’s crucial League game in Tolka Park will now kick off at 5;45p.m tomorrow evening.

Please spread the word.

CUP EXIT

Our Cup dreams ended in a 3-0 nil away loss to Shamrock Rovers last Friday night. The score line was a bit harsh on a battling Town side in a game played in front of about 2,000 supporters, many of them travelling up the M4 for the occasion. Some Rovers fans were hoping for an other First Division team in the next round but good luck to the Hoops whoever they draw. Tony Cousins fielded a strong team which surprised a few Town supporters. Some then were pointing to two losses in a row but quite frankly, nothing can be read into those results with two totally different competitions in question. Shels drew their game and will have a replay before we face them later in the week. Again, a few were hoping before the game that we wouldn’t be in that position which of course increases the injury and fatigue risks. As the cliché goes, it’s a case of putting it behind us and focusing on a much more important game this Friday night.

DE TOWN STILL TOPS

Despite that sickening late, late goal for Galway FC on Saturday night, we’re still top of the pile but with an ever decreasing buffer zone. Despite Gary Shaw’s early opener after good work from Sully, we seemed to give the opposition too much time and space, especially in their half. Too often, Galway were able to build solid attacks without a Town player touching the ball. Despite plenty of chances we just couldn’t make it count and boy, did they punish our mistakes. However, there’s a long, long way to go yet with plenty of time to get back to better performances and winning ways.It’s heartening to see increased crowds coming out to support De Town. We still have Wexford  Youths, Cobh Ramblers and Rovers B at home in the league and it’s vital that there’s even greater home support to help in the push for what will be an extremely tough end of season promotion race.

No one said it’d be easy, we have an excellent and talented squad,we simply have to push on and with more  genuine, local, positive support, the dream can be achieved. Remember, we’re still tops and we aim at keeping it that way. C’mon De Town.

Section O Says Hello (13/08/14)

Good evening and welcome ladies and gents once again from the other side of the ground! Having mentioned in last week’s notes that we were running out of things to complain about, the lads did the honourable thing last week by dropping points and giving us an opportunity to fill some space in this week’s notes! The inevitable overdue slip up, which a lot of us feared was always coming finally arrived and as many of us expected, Finn Harps were the ones who inflicted it upon us. Having said that the result against Harps shouldn’t have the alarm bells ringing just yet! Once again, as in the last few of our games, we started poorly and the first half was certainly nothing to write home about. However, we bossed the majority of the second half with plenty of possession and chances but it just wasn’t to be our day as some bad luck with a bit of help from some excellent defending from Harps meant the ball just wouldn’t go in for us! If that is going to be the slip in form which we all feared then so be it! We are now going into the last round of games 4 points clear which none of us would have turned down if offered at the start of the season! The next two league games against Galway tonight and Shels on Friday week are vital but no matter what happens in them it is still important for the team to keep focused for the supposed easier games! Tonight’s opponents Galway have had a slip in form in recent times which sees them down to 4th place but still right in the mix for playoff spots! Our last game against them was one of our best performances of the season….lets hope the lads can lift it again tonight!

POINT MADE

For anyone under the false illusion that winning this league is easy, the point was well well made following our scoreless draw against Finn Harps. We came away with just one point which in turn cut our six point lead down to four. Heading into round four of four rounds, every single game is going to be tough or as Tony Cousins put it, “ each game will be a cup final.”

Finn Harps seem to be the draw specialists and they certainly frustrated us on Saturday night.Though their keeper made an excellent save in added time, he was never really tested throughout the game.And yet we had most of the possession, especially in the second half but for once, we just couldn’t make it count. We came close a few times, but never close enough to bulge the net.Apart from receiving his player of the month trophy, Paul Hunt had just one save to make at the other end and added to his impressive count of clean sheets.

At kick off time, the crowd seemed small enough but within about ten minutes, the late comers arrived in droves. Don’t leave it till the last minute for the remaining games, come early and enjoy a pre match cuppa in the Clubhouse under the stand where the best value in Ireland is still to be had.
