All future royalties from publishing will go straight to club funds.

For €2 you get the full song featuring Fitzy on vocals with backing by some of Section O, plus a sing-along-version and a very special ring-tone. Here’s a quick clip of the track!

Supporters’ Club Notes (05/10/14)

CHAMPIONS!

Longford Town FC are Division 1 champions for 2014 following an emphatic 5-0 crushing of Shamrock Rovers on Friday night last. For any long suffering Town fan, that opening sentence is probably the sweetest sentence we’ll read all year. All week there was a marvellous build up and it was great to experience a bit of a buzz back in the town. The red and black flags were flying from houses, cars, schools and even the council offices. Social media had turned red and black at times too.

Despite the incessant Friday rain, a huge crowd of over 2,000 headed to the City Calling Stadium where everything was in place for an historic night for Longford sport. Expectations were sky high and a few wondered if we weren’t counting chickens before their due date.

Earlier in the day, Longford took to the streets for St Christopher’s and so it was fitting that the large crowd had a minute of applause in support of their worthy cause.

With Section O fielding their largest grouping ever and with the stand bursting at the seams, the scene was set.
