Longford V Rovers set for Tuesday 25th of August at CCS with a 7-45 KO. That may change though as our FAI cup replay with Cockhill Celtic will be played at the same venue on that date if needed. Hilariously poor planning
Anyone know when tonights postponed game between Longford and Shamrock rovers will be played
Walkover would suit us. It's the most important competition of the season (copyright Trevor Croly)
Dundalk's last game in this seasons LSC was a 3-0 win away to Wexford in Mid March. I'm not even sure what stage that was, possibly the QF.
That has to be one of the longest periods between last and next stage in a cup in LOI? As it will be at least 6 mths when the next round is played.
#Dundalk FC 3-in-a-row 2014-2016
How does this schedule compare with the Munster or Connaught version. Are they completed yet.
Also would this competition not be better served as a poor season tourney
Long Live King Kenny
It still baffles that the top tier of football in this country plays a different season to intermediate, Junior, and provincial leagues. Its a disadvantage for non-league sides for starters and over complicates transfer. No doubt people will talk about summer holidays etc as the reasons why. I played schoolboys football for a good chunk of the summer last century and while not what it was in the past Dundalk Summer League is full of players that play ball anyway until their 'home' club's season returns. Seem to me that it is some sort of passive aggressive LoI bashing or flexing their collective vote. Should weight senior clubs with more than one vote to balance out the sheer numbers of non-league members.
To be fair, the winter season is how it's been done for 100+ years and, most importantly, it's how they do it on the mothership in England.
Anyone able to report on last nights match between longford and rovers
