FIGHTING SPIRIT

The trip to the west last Friday evening was for those who always maintain that the glass is half full. But even the most optimist had their resolve truly tested when Galway went ahead within two minutes of the kick off. When the westerners doubled their lead after 30 minutes, a few die hard Town followers were examining their sanity, let alone their optimism. It certainly looked like there was more than the setting sun going down in Galway Bay.

But then there was a second half that will live long in the memory of come backs and fighting spirit. Man of the match, Josh O’Hanlon found the back of the net with a sweet header on the hour mark which seemed to stun the hosts. Nine minutes later the stunned Galway were sickened when the same player struck the post, which in turn struck their keeper and eventually crossed the line for the most unlikely of equalisers. Suddenly the glass was half full again and a 2-2 draw was enough to send the Town supporters home as happy as if they had won.

Elsewhere Sligo won and there was a draw between Finn Harps and Wexford Youths which means we remain at the bottom of the table. But it didn’t feel that way as the fighting spirit (and a little luck) lifted hearts and made the start to the bank holiday week end just a little bit sweeter.

Supporters’ Club Notes (24/04/16)

POINTS GO WEST

One well known Town supporter walked into a bar in Sligo on Saturday evening and asked for a pint and three points. I suppose a 50% per cent return wasn’t exactly the best return. There was fair scattering of Town supporters who made the relatively short trip up the N4 to the Showgrounds. Hopes were fairly high as Sligo, like ourselves, were languishing at the wrong end of the table and had so far failed to win a game. But by half time the writing was on the wall and it didn’t make for pleasant reading. Like forming a government at the moment, there seems to be more questions than solutions.

Supporters’ Club Notes (18/05/16)

VALUABLE POINT

If Derry City arrived to City Calling Stadium expecting a fairly easy three points, they left mightily disappointed. De Town produced a vastly improved performance to record a well merited 1-1 draw. Most home supporters would have taken a share of the spoils at 7.30 and a move up a few places. All in all it was a satisfactory night’s work, with Davy O’Sullivan heading us in front in the first half. Paul Skinner also had an excellent game between the posts and apart from his vital penalty save, also made a couple of other fine saves too. Their goal, a rasper came from a throw where they were given just a little too much time and space.

From the kick off, De Town really got stuck in which in turn animated the appreciative crowd in the stand. There was a buzz in the Clubhouse at half time simply due to the fact that the team were really giving their all. Overall, it was heart warming display on a cold night. The new scoreboard’s clock may not have been working but at least the Luigi sign is now in its proper place. Progress signs?

SLIGO AWAY

On Saturday night, 23th April we head up the N4 to face Sligo Rovers. Sligo also are having a slow start but they had an impressive display against Dundalk up in Oriel, going down to a penalty. But if we show the same industry and commitment, we can surely get something out of the bit o’ red. There’s a drinks billboard now at the City Calling Stadium car park with a tag line Dream Big, so why not! Here’s to three points.

BUS TO SLIGO

If you’re interested in travelling by bus to Sligo for the game, text Kieran on 083 167 0304 as soon as possible. There are family and child rates available. Text him only please, he wants to keep his job.

BEST WISHES

The Supporters’ Club would like to send get well wishes to Town supporter and former player, Mel Devlin who has been in hospital recently. Knowing Mel, his fighting spirit and upbeat attitude will see him home and fighting fit very soon. And on the subject of hospitals, it’s great to see Seamus Kiernan out and about and smiling again.

DIGGER APPROVAL

Last week, a gentleman, low in stature and wearing glasses was checking out the new pitches alongside the main pitch. At first his walk seemed familiar but it wasn’t until he removed the specs and starting talking that the man’s identity became clear. It was none other than Digger O’Brien, our former keeper, a legend in his right. He had been down on official business at Abbot and had just called out to have a look at where he staked his claim as one of our most famous keepers…and that’s in a long line of outstanding net minders. Anyway, he was most impressed with the ground’s progress since he left and getting approval from Digger never came easily. So, we must be doing doing something right.

CAR BOOT SALE

Don’t forget our Car Boot Sale which will take place on the May bank holiday Monday from very early till 3pm at the City Calling Stadium. Volunteers are always most welcome.
