COBH AT HOME
Saturday night sees Cobh Ramblers make the long trip from the south coast to the CCS, kick off at 7.30. Cobh have been doing extremely well in their last few games , picking up four points from a possible 6. So even before they hit the road north, we’ve been warned. Each of our four remaining games is a Cup Final, as Tony Cousins says. He’s completely correct. But, as every one knows, if we win these four games, then we wave goodbye to the First Division.
We have vastly experienced players on the pitch, most have been through the agonising heartbreak of last year. So the lads on th epitch will do their best.
What we really, really need for our remaining home games is a huge supporting local and vocal crowd . For these two vital upcoming home games, it’s time to forget Little Mayo of this time last year. It’s time to forget the overpaid players of the Premiership. They won’t miss you.
Again, every one in Longford, town and county knows that we could do with a lift. We desperately need something to lift our flagging spirits but we are lucky. We have De Town. We have a wonderful local club flying the local flag. It’s one thing following from your smart phone but nothing compares to being there in the flesh. Put simply, we need many,many more supporters to actually make the journey out the Strokestown Road and to roar our support. We need a sea of red and black and a cauldron of noise.In fairness, the support has been increasing of late, but we simply need more. Much more. Will you join us on Saturday night? We need you.
