SECTION O SAYS HELLO
Hello all from the other side of the ground.
So, that second round of games fairly flew didn’t it? Our trip to Derry on Friday 31st of July had 2 deflected goals in the first 20 mins killed us, deflating the players, bench and the 30 odd two. Fans who broke for the border that evening. As one of Section O’s finest pointed out, Derry weren’t that bad against Bohs a week previous, despite the 4-2 score line, and they gave us all manner of problems, controlling the midfield and allowing us nothing when we seldom attacked. We ended with just the one shot on target and truthfully it wasn’t a great chance either. Derry got a slick third just to put a bit of gloss their performance deserved, and ours allowed them. Factor in a gaggle of Derry children with their incessant drumming and it was a less than desirable night all round. Fair play to Paul Hunt for walking the length of the pitch to gift his gloves to a young town fan and applaud the traveling support. More about him later.
