Longford Town put 5 past Athlone Town in El Clasico

Sun Aug 4th 2019

Match Report by James Donnelly (Full report on sseairtricityleague.ie)

Longford Town ran riot in the El Clasico as they put five past Athlone at the Athlone Town Stadium on Friday night.

Three first-half goals from Aodh Dervin, Anto Breslin and Sean Boyd had the visitors in firm control with the home side threatening little apart from the odd chance from Shane Dunne.

Town started as they meant to go on with Dervin scoring from long range after just two minutes of play.

They made it two after 15 when Anto Breslin marched through one on one to put it past Myles, and loanee Sean Boyd got his second goal in as many games for the club on 22 minutes when Dylan Grimes played him in after a huge lapse in the Athlone defence.

The remaining 10 minutes of the second half saw Longford get their fourth through Peter Hopkins.

Athlone got a consolation through Kealan Dillon but Longford hit straight back from the penalty spot from Sam Verdon to make it 5-1 to the Red and Black.

Team Line-up 

Longford Town: Lee Steacy, Joe Manley, Conor Kenna (C), Shane Elworthy (Peter Hopkins ’72), Anto Breslin, Michael McDonnell, Dylan Grimes (Karl Chambers ’80), Aodh Dervin, Dean Byrne, Sean Boyd (Aaron Dobbs ’66), Sam Verdon.

Whatever Neale Fenn said at half time following a scoreless first half certainly worked, as De Town netted 4 times without reply in the second period. Goals from Dean Byrne (x2), Sean Boyd and Joe Manley sent the De Town crowd home happy.

And where would we be without our mighty supporters and hard working volunteers…some travelled from the UK and would you believe another made the long journey from Russia. C’mon De Town!!

Sam Verdon headed a real peach of a winning goal with just minutes of normal time remaining.

The celebrations were certainly justified…coming from behind..we deserved the win but we don’t always get what we deserve…..3 vital points and back to second place- yes, for sure, the celebrations were justified.

6 long anxious minutes were added – it was helter skelter as the kitchen sink was thrown at us – but this time we held firm for those 3 vital points.

The relief and joy at the sound of the final whistle was clear to see on the faces of players, management and supporters…

Aoife and Ciara Smith were on hand to present Anto Beslin with his June player of the month trophy- two former Town legends were in attendance as well as 2 UEFA officials (hopefully they were suitably impressed with our facilities) and then a few other random pics with which to finish tonight’s photographic round up.

C’mon De Town!!!
