SIGN OF THE TIMES
It's surely a sign of the times when so many supporters have become grandfathers and grandmothers, (some not for the first time) over the festive period. It's surely time for plenty of new blood. But well done to all of you, too numerous to mention.
GOING FOR GOAL
Among the numerous rumours doing the rounds, word has it that a new striker has been signed. Well more on that when the season kicks off. In the meantime, it was great to see so many from De Town suport the Christmas day GOAL Mile. Spotted were former Town legend Sean Prunty, back from London, Alan Kirby was also there with a baby and Mick Lee the baby of the group looking fit and eager. It was lovely to see Roger and Emily Turner there as well as the entire Johnny Nevin clan as well as old faithful Liam Healion and Alan Madden with the Muldowney family. Dublin based John Hynes also was there, so a very impressive Town showing.
We'll have our annual meeting early in the New Year to get the ball rolling once again, in anticipation of a new and exciting season ahead.
