A fabulous 4 goals against Sligo Rovers last Saturday night.

A stunning 7 goals against Athlone Town tonight.

Enough to keep any photographer on his toes.

Goals by David O’Sullivan (x3), Karl Chambers (x2) and one each from Daniel O’Reilly and Kealan Dillon made this an historic night at the City Calling Stadium.

As Van Morrison might have said “There’ll be nights like this.”


Some more action from the City Calling Stadium, this was Longford’s joint record league win on a par with the 6-0 win over Shamrock Rovers B.


Some familiar faces at the City Calling Stadium.

Many thanks to Sean Finnegan for the scans from 1974, of an article of the history of the club written by the legendary Paddy Clabby, and it appeared in the Longford Leader Supplement – ’75 Years of Longford’. A great find, thanks Sean!
