Supporters’ Club hard at work…

The season may be over but the work never ends, even on a bank holiday.
While the Club announces four re signings for next season, Mickey Ghee, Kevin Carberry and Johnny Nevin from the Supporters’ Club were hard at work cleaning up after an other successful Car Boot Sale.
Special mention to Liam Healion, Andy Dardid, Paddy Conway, Brendan Finnegan, Bobby Stocks, Paul Delaney, Aidan Bennett, Robert Farrell, the Pawelec family, Johnny Nevin, Mickey Ghee for all their  magnificent hard work during every single bank holiday in 2014. The next one will be the bank holiday  for St Patrick’s Day, in March of 2015.

O’Sullivan, Hunt, Mulhall and Shaw sign on for De Town!

Just as all at the club are getting used to the tag: “SSE Airtricity First Division League winners” and the celebrations have died down, work is already well underway on securing players for the 2015 season in the Premier Division! Longford Town FC are delighted to announce that David O’Sullivan. Paul Hunt, Jamie Mulhall and Gary Shaw have all signed for the club for the 2015 season. All four young stars were outstanding throughout last season so we are delighted to have them back on board again. It is fair to say that we are eagerly awaiting the new season even before the dust settles on our fantastic League win!!
