U15 SSE Airtricity League Group 2

Saturday April 21st
Longford Town 0-1 Athlone Town

A very similar story to last week for the lads only this time Longford Towns U15’s came one closer than at Cabinteely last week, in what was a very competitive and evenly matched Midlands Derby.

In front of a large crowd in Longford’s first home game of the season both sides were very evenly matched for the opening half with one stand out chance falling to either side. Unfortunately for Longford their chance from a Nick Palmer strike went just wide after a fantastic break away took place thanks to some great play from Josh Geogheann, Ben Grey and Sam Hayden.
The shot went just wide of Athlone’s post though, and only 5 minutes later Athlone’s first clear chance of the game would be dispatched ruthlessly seeing Athlone lead at the break 1 nil.

The second half remained as even as the first, but similar to the first half, chances were few and far between and only for a few threatening set pieces for either side, the half petered out and the game finished 1-0 to Athlone.

Again a lot of encouraging signs for Longford’s U15’s as they matched the performance of yet another good team.

MATCH REPORT: Town Under 15’s lose away to Cabinteely

Sun Apr 15th 2018

REPORT BY TONY GHEE

The U15’s played what turned out to be a very competitive game on Saturday in Kiltiernan and although both sides were battling it out for their first win of the season, it would be very fair to say that a lot of positive and entertaining football was played by both sides.

The game began as a close affair with both teams having chances, the better of which had fallen to Cabinteely inside the first 20 minutes. Cabinteely’s early dominance then led to by far the biggest chance of the game as Cabinteely were awarded a penalty after their right winger was judged to be fouled in the box.

The resulting penalty turned out to be the kick starter of Longford’s first purple patch of the game though, as the spot kick was blazed over the bar. Longford then pushed on and had a few very good chances of their own. Nick Palmer had a header that could be deemed the pick of these chances, as he headed inches wide from an excellent cross from Ben Grey.

Longford’s dominance was not to be rewarded though and Cabinteely capitalized, as they scored a very well worked goal just 5 minutes before the break. Again Cabinteely’s right winger played a big part in their positive attacking play, as his darting run in behind Longford’s defenders and quality pullback meant the chance they created was easily converted and the score was 1 nil to Cabinteely at half time.

Longford began the second-half with another strong period of dominance as they really piled the pressure on a defensively strong Cabo back four.

As they pushed for an equalizer, some very good chances were created through a mix of good build up play and early crosses, with Nick Palmer forcing a great save from the Cabo keeper. Then Josh Geogheann turned brilliantly before running through to a 1v1 chance which could’ve easily led to a goal only for an outstanding piece of last ditch defending.

The missed opportunities would again prove to be rued by Longford, as with 15 minutes to go, another swift attacking counter from Cabinteely put them 2 nil up.

The last 15 minutes of the game opened up as Longford chased a goal in an effort to try get back into the game, which led to chances at both ends, as Cabo had chances on the counter attack too.

Overall Longford may rue missed chances after the game, but ultimately the performance was a positive one and they go into next week with renewed confidence before their first home league game of the season, a Midlands Derby versus Athlone Town.
