Section O Says Hello (01/10/14)

Good evening and a big hello to everyone from the other side of the ground for what could be a historic night for our club! If you are reading this, it is safe to assume you understand the significance of this game. After seven long and torturous years in the graveyard of Irish Football, we have our best opportunity yet to “escape” and clinch not only the promotion which we have dreamed of for years but also to secure our first ever league title.

Three points and it’s job done…game over….lights out, no need to worry about the results of other teams over our shoulder, no need to have to go through another year of potential heartbreak through the dreaded playoffs and no need to have to need anything from next week’s game in Ballybofey, a place always hard to come out of with anything, including your shins! Having said that, we can’t be too hard on our friends from Donegal either after last weekend, in particular Mr Michael Funston, who should be made aware that if he is ever to venture to a game at the CCS in the near future, there will be a complimentary can of cheap, lukewarm beer waiting for him over in Section O, provided he’s not playing! This generous offer is of course subject to things going right on the pitch for us and Town fans of all people should know that it’s not over until it’s over!

Supporters’ Club Notes (28/09/14)

VITAL AWAY WIN

The winning way continued on Friday night last in far off Waterford with a 2-0 win over hosts Waterford Utd at the RSC. Despite their poor enough season, the Blues had a decent crowd present which was helped by children being admitted free. But there was an excellent travelling support too and surely, if the FAI were handing out awards for the best travellers, surely Longford would top it.

There was a clear intent about De Town as they attacked from the off. David O Sullivan came ever so close on more than one occasion but he provided the pass for in form Gary Shaw to open our account on 25 minutes. Then just before the break, player of the match Jamie Mulhall smashed home an absolute pile driver from about 30 yards which put a decent look on the scoreboard before the tea break.

Depite bossing the rest of the game, we had to make do with just the two goals. But two goals secured three precious points. Meanwhile, many had an eye and ear tuned in to proceedings up in Finn Park where Shels were surely shocked by Finn Harps 3-2. That game started after ours and we had an anxious wait in the stand while the stewards tried to get us to go home. When Harps scored their third, giving us a a four point cushion, it’s likely the roar was heard up in Donegal. It was a vital away win that turned out to be a win on the double. What a feeling!

Press Release

 History and folklore tells us that during the 1985 rugby triple-crown decider in Lansdowne Road in 1985 Ireland captain Ciaran Fitzgerald roared at his troops “where is your f…. pride”. We all know how that ended up!! For those younger Town supporters I’ll remind you:- Michael Kiernan raised the roof with a late dropped goal which ensured Irelands triple crown victory only their second since 1949.

Next Friday night at City Calling Stadium offers the people of Longford the opportunity to show their pride in their local League of Ireland team and raise the roof. The match kicks off at 8 pm and it could prove to be a historical occasion i.e. Longford Town FC’s first ever National league title secured at home!

Supporters’ Club Notes (22/09/14)

CHARACTER TESTER

Saturday night’s game against Cobh at the CCS was a real character tester for both team and supporters. Cobh travelled north fully intent on causing an upset; four points from six in their previous two games meant they were high on confidence. From the kick off we took the game to them but still failed to make our superiority count. When they went one up after 20 mns, the silence in the stadium was deafening as a few home stomachs churned. It took an other twenty minutes of frustration before Stephen Rice took the game by the proverbial scruff of the neck and bustled his way past a few Cobh defenders to launch a Ricer special to the back of the net.
