LTFC Loom Bands selling like hot cakes…

Emmet Ryan, Manager of the Longford Town Supporters’ Club Clubhouse with sisters Alicja and Zuzanna Pawelec. The two talented students from St Emer’s National School made red and black loom bands which sold within minutes of going on sale in the Clubhouse for two weeks in a row. The industrious girls  hope to have  more  available before the last home game of the season.

CHARACTER TESTER

Saturday night’s game against Cobh at the CCS was a real character tester for both team and supporters. Cobh travelled north fully intent on causing an upset; four points from six in their previous two games meant they were high on confidence. From the kick off we took the game to them but still failed to make our superiority count. When they went one up after 20 mns, the silence in the stadium was deafening as a few home stomachs churned. It took an other twenty minutes of frustration before Stephen Rice took the game by the proverbial scruff of the neck and bustled his way past a few Cobh defenders to launch a Ricer special to the back of the net.

Section O Says Hello (17-09-2014)

It’s that time of the week again where everyone at Section O says hello from the far side of the ground and what a long week it’s been with no league game due to the cup break. On Tuesday night last however, we had some cup action of our own as a new and youthful looking Town side took on the might of League of Ireland champions, St Patrick’s Athletic. After a slow burner of a first half in which the Dublin side took the lead, we finally burst into action in the second forty-five with a very spirited performance and as a result the Section O faithful, who it must be said turned out in great numbers on the night, were rewarded with a Tom Morris goal with Tomo celebrating In fine style. Unfortunately it wasn’t to be enough as Liam Buckley’s men took the Leinster Senior Cup back to Inchicore but plenty of encouraging signs ahead of a huge end to the season for Cousins’ men.

Supporters’ Club Notes (15/09/14)

COBH AT HOME

Saturday night sees Cobh Ramblers make the long trip from the south coast to the CCS, kick off at 7.30. Cobh have been doing extremely well in their last few games , picking up four points from a possible 6. So even before they hit the road north, we’ve been warned. Each of our four remaining games is a Cup Final, as Tony Cousins says. He’s completely correct. But, as every one knows, if we win these four games, then we wave goodbye to the First Division.

We have vastly experienced players on the pitch, most have been through the agonising heartbreak of last year. So the lads on th epitch will do their best.

What we really, really need for our remaining home games is a huge supporting local and vocal crowd . For these two vital upcoming home games, it’s time to forget Little Mayo of this time last year. It’s time to forget the overpaid players of the Premiership. They won’t miss you.

Again, every one in Longford, town and county knows that we could do with a lift. We desperately need something to lift our flagging spirits but we are lucky. We have De Town. We have a wonderful local club flying the local flag. It’s one thing following from your smart phone but nothing compares to being there in the flesh. Put simply, we need many,many more supporters to actually make the journey out the Strokestown Road and to roar our support. We need a sea of red and black and a cauldron of noise.In fairness, the support has been increasing of late, but we simply need more. Much more. Will you join us on Saturday night? We need you.

Well known faces at the LSC Cup Final

A few well known faces at the Leinster Senior Cup Final at CCS where St Pats beat a plucky but ultimately unlucky Longford Town side 1-2. A good crowd enjoyed some very entertaining football but alas no silverware for De Town on this occasion.

The game against St Pats was played on a perfect autumnal evening and the pitch and stadium matched the weather…even a full moon rose behind Section O to add to the occasion. Well done to the team for a whole hearted display. Next up is Cobh on Saturday week.

Cup Final At The City Calling

Tonight’s it’s the Leinster Senior Cup final at Longford’s City Calling Stadium vs St. Patrick’s Athletic. It’s our first Cup Final since 2007 (1-0 loss to Cork City at the RDS), and a chance to win our first silverware since that magnificent two FAI Cups in a row in 2003 and 2004. Kick-off is at 7.45pm this evening, it’ll be a great boost for our promotion push if we win, and it’ll be a great chance to watch a Cup Final on your doorstep. Come out and cheer De Town on…
