Supporters’ Club Notes (27/06/16)

HALF CHANCES, NO POINTS

The attention of a few returned to the domestic game when Finn Harps were the visitors to the City Calling Stadium last Friday night. We had some early half chances from Mark Hughes and Philip Gorman but unfortunately we couldn’t convert them to either goals or points. With less than 20 minutes on the clock the visitors went ahead and then doubled their tally in the second half. It was a disappointing result in front of a disappointing crowd which sees us firmly rooted to the wrong end of the table.

ST MEL’S BREWING COMPANY

A huge thank to the local St Mel’s Brewing Co who are sponsoring the game against Bohs. Eoin Tynan and Liam Hanlon are the brave men behind the venture and while non multi millionaires yet, full credit is due to them for backing us. Hopefully we’ll have a St Mel’s or two to celebrate a win soon. The lads have also sponsored Kevin O’Connor and when he scores, he’s in line for a crate of the very best of St Mel’s craft beer. Thanks again, lads.

DOUBLE PRESENTATION

Due to circumstances beyond our control, the Player of the Month award for May had to be held over till this week end. That means that for the first time ever, we’ll have a double presentation before the game against Bohs. The May winner is Philip Gannon while the June recipient is Conor Powell. Well done lads.

THOSE SIGNS

A few people have asked where our match day signs have gone. Well, the Council have taken possession of them. Seemingly they were a nuisance. Negotiations have opened and we’ll keep you informed of any developments.

BOHS NEXT

This week end, we entertain at home again when we welcome Bohs to the City Calling Stadium. We badly need a good crowd and three points, otherwise our situation could be the same as the name of a famous rock band.

INTERNATIONAL SUPPORTERS

Welcome back to Longford to our merry band of supporters who travelled all over France recently following the Green Army. At least our tricolour waving fans also support De Town and it was really great to see the lads back in the City Calling Stadium before they headed back to Lyon early the following morning.

Supporters’ Club Notes (20-06-16)

HARPS HERE ON FRIDAY

We play Finn Harps this Friday with a 8pm kick off. Please note change of date and time, even though some national papers have the game down for the next night. It was re scheduled in case the Republic of Ireland team qualified for the last 16 in the Euros.

So, it’s certainly back to the bread and margarine following the baguettes and champagne of the Euros as we face Finn Harps. Just before the break the Harps hammered near neighbours, Sligo Rovers 3-0 and of course beat us too in our first game up in Finn Park. Our friendly against Cabinteely was called off as, seemingly the opposition couldn’t field a team. Hopefully though, we’ll have a few bodies rested and raring to go for the second half of the season.

That we need to improve is an understatement and that we need more local support is also an understatement. But if we could could win both our next game which are at home, then the second half of the season takes on a whole new and optimistic look.. See you there.

ST MEL’S BREWING CO.

The Supporters’ Club, following some pleasant discussions with St Mel’s Brewing Co. Ltd have just secured a welcome deal with the local brewers. Not alone have they decided to sponsor Kevin O Connor (and a case of St Mel’s brew when he scores) but they’re also sponsoring next week’s game against Bohemians. Full credit to local men Eoin Tynan and Liam Hanlon of St Mel’s Brewing Co. for their valued support for De Town.

The Supporters’ Club will be running a competition on the club’s Facebook page in conjunction with our local craft beer company with a crate of beer for the winners. Well worth checking out.

PLAYER OF THE MONTH

The presentation of the Player of the month award for May to Philip Gannon will be made before the game on Friday night. Even though, June will be a short month from a games point of view, we will also be having a June winner and that presentation will be made the following month.

CONGRATS

Congratulations are in order for the hard working supporter Liam Healion on his recent golfing success. If only Shane Lowry had contacted Liam for some last minute tips, we could have had some international sporting success at the week end.

STEP DOWN

Former Town manager Alan Mathews has stepped down as manager of our near neighbours Athlone Town and who could blame him. Very often, like in life, you don’t get what you deserve. If Alan could pen a book about his managerial experiences, it’d make for fascinating reading.

WELCOME HOME

Welcome home to our legions of supporters who travelled all over France supporting the Green Army. Many photos appeared on social media and one group even managed the front page of the Leader but will we ever hear the full stories behind the travels?

Stand Up If You’re Ireland

Back in 2002, Shane Gill was a member of the St Mel’s College choir (aka Pascal’s Rascals) which recorded a song for the Republic of Ireland World Cup campaign. Despite continuous airplay on the nation’s air waves, the CD failed to break into the international market.

However, Shane is now singing on the international circuit and can be heard around Paris today as the popular Secretary of the LTFC Supporters’ Club continues to sing his 2002 song “Stand Up If Iou’re Ireland”. However the main vocalist with the choir Pascal Flaherty was unable to make Paris this evening.

Best of luck Shane and all De Town supporters in De France this evening.

Shane is 3rd from the left in the 2nd row and hasn’t changed a bit since 2002…..
