Shelbourne v Longford Town – A Photo Essay

Mon Feb 27th 2017

Recently a superb photo essay with some well chosen words has been uploaded and is well worth checking out. Eamonn Donohue is the man responsible for what he terms a “quick Apostolic Blessing from a League of Ireland evangelist”. Eamonn is a former RTE journalist with a soft spot for De Town but when it comes to either the pen or the lens, he’s truly gifted. Check out his very humourous book Cabra Cadabra.

You can find his excellent photo essay here.

COBH AT HOME

Our first home game of the 2017 season kicks off this Saturday evening at 7.30 pm when we entertain Cobh. No one needs reminding of our dismal home record in 2016. Hopefully we put all that behind us and pick up some valuable points at home in the CCS on Saturday night.

We do really need a good support turning up and making ourselves heard. If the first round of games is anything to go by, the season ahead is going to be one very long slog with every point being priceless. Cobh, as they’ve already shown are tough nuts to crack who stay with the game right to the final whistle. We simply have to match that and be even better. It’s a long way from the Cork seaside town to Longford so they’ll hardly be bringing a convoy of coaches. In simple terms it’s up to us to get behind the lads from the off and to make our presence felt and heard. C’mon De Town.

MATCHDAY 1: Shelbourne 0-0 Longford Town

Sat Feb 25th 2017

A difficult league opener for the town as we played out a goalless draw against Shels tonight.

A missed penalty in the first half for Longford Town by David O’Sullivan had Shels counting their blessings but some clear cut chances before and after the break had the traveling town fans optimistic for a win.

Don Cowan went off with a knock in the first half and was replaced by our new singing from UCD, Mark Langtry, who made his debut for the town tonight. Noel Haverty went off in the second half with a knock also and was replaced by Rhys Gorman in central defence.

Many a chance came Longford’s way in the second half and Shels had a goal cleared off the line but it just wasn’t to be for either side as the match ended scoreless.

 

 


Shelbourne v Longford Town Team News

Thu Feb 23rd 2017

Longford Town manager Alan Mathews is pleased to announce that he has a full squad available for selection for Friday’s trip to Tolka Park for the team’s opening First Division test against Shelbourne.

There are plenty of new signings including former Shels players Jack Brady and Gavin Boyne, while Aidan Friel, Dylan McGlade, Stephen Walsh, Dean Zambra, Jake Kelly and Enda Curran will also be vying for places in the starting eleven.

Key players from last season include 2017 captain, Kevin O’Connor, Rhys Gorman, Kealan Dillon, all time club top goal-scorer David O’Sullivan, Don Cowan and Noel Haverty.

Five players from the club’s underage system are included in the first team’s 25 player squad with Tristan Noack-Hofman who played in the Premier Division last season and young striker Dan Beya who scored in the pre-season friendly against Bohemians, the most likely to be included in Friday’s match day squad.

Kick-off at Tolka Park on Friday night is 7.45pm.

WE’RE BACK

After a mild winter, we’re back and ready to rock and roll. Since the disappointment of relegation last season, there have been a fair few changes both on and off the pitch. Pre-season has gone pretty well for Alan Mathews and his revamped squad. Most who attended a few games came away with renewed optimism. What has pleased a lot of people is the inclusion of local talent which makes the season ahead even more interesting. This Friday night, we head up the M4 to take on Shelbourne and a good crowd of travelling support is expected. Hopefully we can start positively with a good display and something on the board.
