David O’Sullivan breaks the record for the fastest hat-trick!

Mon Aug 21st 2017

It’s now official…..David O’Sullivan has broken the club record for the fastest hat trick in a game.

Following exhaustive research over almost three days, Martin Stapleton, club archivist and historian, can confirm that Sully’s stunning three goals in ten minutes (3 mins – 13 mins) beat the previous record holder by a full two minutes.

Back in 2008, Darren McKenna scored a hat trick but it took him all of 12 minutes. The game was the first of the season and was against Sporting Fingal.

The rapid fire hat trick was scored on Saturday 19th August 2017 against Athlone Town.

A huge thank you to Martin Stapleton who spent countless hours working on the research before arriving at his conclusive outcome.

A big thanks and heartiest congratulations to Sully on being De Town’s hat trick supremo.



Longford Town FC Supporters’ Club Xmas Hamper Draw

Fri Nov 11th 2016

The Longford Town FC Supporters’ Club are holding their annual Christmas Hamper Draw on Thursday 22nd December in the Tally Ho pub on New Street.

Aside from the hampers, there are a number of prizes to be won, including some goodies on the night.

This is an important fundraiser for the Supporters Club, as we continue to support the club next season in hopefully bouncing straight back up to the Premier Divison.

We ask all Longford Town Supporters to make a huge effort to sell tickets over the the coming weeks.

Tickets will be available from early next week, and we ask anyone that is interested in taking a few books to sell to contact Kevin Carberry, or any member of the Supporters Club known to them. Tickets cost €2 each, with a book of 6 costing €10.

Thank you for all your help thus far, and lets make this draw a huge success.

Supporters’ Club Notes (01/08/16)

A GOAL AND A POINT

The weekend game against Galway Utd was billed as a must win game as the struggle to catch Wexford continued. But with Wexford taking all three priceless points away to Finn Harps the previous night, our task on Saturday night became even greater. Hopes soared when the hard working Kaleem Simon found the back of the Galway net with a fine strike. But all the hard work, energy and passion was negated when the visitors equalised through a defensive lapse to leave it all square at one a piece and just one point as well. The polite clapping at the end of the game summed it all up. Yes, we have been playing better of late, yes, there is a greater urgency and commitment but we still only took two points from our last two home games. And then Wexford beat Harps to increase the gap between automatic relegation and the play offs. It’s going to be tough, very tough. Climbing Croagh Patrick barefoot comes to mind. Very tough, but possible.

ROVERS AWAY

This Friday night we head to Tallaght Stadium to face the hoops of Shamrock Rovers with an 8pm kick off. Rovers are currently sitting in fourth place with a couple of games in hand. They’ll be expecting an easy ride up there but if we can continue our fighting spirit and keep our concentration, then anything is possible. This game marks the end of phase two and the following week, we head back to Wexford for the start of the final phase and to where we had our only win this season.

PLAYER OF THE MONTH / JULY

Congratulations to Kaleem Simon who is our deserved player of the month for July. Apart from his first goal of the season last Saturday night, Kaleem continues to improve and grow in confidence. He always works his socks off and is certainly a worthy July winner of the player of the month. Kaleem will be presented with his trophy before the next home game which looks like Monday August 15th when we play St Pats. This is to be confirmed.

CUP GAME

The FAI made the draw for the next round of the Cup at their big meeting down in Clonmel (a hotbed of soccer, seemingly or close to Waterford) and we’ve been given a home draw against second placed Cork City. The game has to be played the week ending Sunday, August 21st which will probably mean we’ll play them on Saturday, August 20th. Now, if the game should end in a draw, we then will have to travel south for a replay on the Tuesday 23rd before, wait for it….play them again in the league on Friday 26th August. So, it’s possibly three games within a week against the same opposition. The only solution is we’ll have to beat them at home to avoid huge travel expenses.

CAR BOOT SALE

Once again, the weather was kind to us for the August Bank Holiday Car Boot Sale. There was also a summer camp on the pitch which made for some difficulties due to the huge crowd. And once again a massive thank you to all the old faithful souls for their continued hard work, support and dedication.
