Pat Flynn has played his last game at Airtricity League level. He walked off the pitch to a standing ovation tonight at City Calling Stadium, where De Town were defeated 4-2 by Shamrock Rovers. The club would like to wish Pat all the best and thank him for his years of service and dedication to Longford Town FC. A real character, who will be sorely missed by everyone at the club and indeed, many throughout the league.
His family were out in force to celebrate one of the game's great characters. Pat will be fondly remembered for his skill and passion as well as his terrific tweets! Thanks Pat for many fabulous memories.
Here's a reminder of his finest moment on Twitter!
And some pictures by Tiernan Dolan on an emotional night for the legend.
