    After the summer recess Monaghan United recommence their season with an away fixture on Saturday is the league to Athlone Town.

    Manager Mick Cooke was positive that his side should reap the benefits of the break saying: “As we went into the summer break we had been giving some of the best displays I have seen from a United team since I became involved with the club and one hopes that the interval didn’t come at the wrong time to interrupt that performance. I believe that the break will have given us an opportunity to recharge our batteries and allowed the players who were suffering from some niggling injuries to have recovered

    Monaghan United will go into this game against Shelbourne having received a great boost to their confidence with a win over Premier Division Champions Bohemians on Tuesday evening last in the 2nd. Round of the EA Sports Cup, it will not be just the win which was achieved the hard way having gone behind in extra time and then winning the game on penalties but it will be the manner in which they played throughout all of that game especially in extra time. Hopefully all players will have recovered from the two hours of drama in that game.

    What better way to bounce back from a rare defeat than the visit of the league champions. Monaghan United were somewhat unlucky to see their excellent recent run come to and end on Friday last against Derry City but Mick Cooke’s men have no time to lick their wounds as they face Bohemians this evening in the second round of the EA Sports League Cup at Gortakeegan.

    As well as rising to third in the Airtricity First Division table in recent weeks, United have impressed in the League Cup, overcoming Shelbourne 1-0 and Tullamore Town 6-1 to earn a tilt at the best team in the country on home turf.

    It will be a case of back to the future tonight at Gortakeegan when Monaghan United welcome Airtricity League First Division leaders Derry City.

    This year marks 25 years since both sides made their League of Ireland bows. Indeed, Monaghan’s first ever home senior soccer match came against Derry City in Belgium Park in the League Cup in September 1985 (coincidentally the year in which the aforementioned film is set) resulting in a 2-0 Mons win in front of a bumper crowd. So large was the travelling Derry support – the club’s first away game in the League of Ireland – that a large section of the Candystripes support watched the match from the main road overlooking United’s former home.

    It should be a confident Monaghan United side who will take to the field against Limerick at Gortakeegan on Friday night. United's present good run has been rounded off with an impressive away win at Turners Cross last week end even a share of points in a ground that they had never previous won in would have been a fine result.

    Like United, Limerick has commenced the season well and a win for them would be enough to rob us of our 3rd place in the table and that in itself is an incentive for both teams. In their last outing their defeat of Wexford Youths sent Mick Wallace's side to the foot of the table. A truer measure of their form was in the previous game, they went down 2-1 at the RSC to league leaders Waterford United and had they taken they chances that came their way they would have come away with a share of the spoils. There hasn't been much between Limerick and United in recent seasons and I am sure it will be no different this Friday.

    Monaghan United’s efforts in trying to eradicate racism have been further acknowledged by their inclusion in the new One World CSPE textbook for Junior Certificate Students, which will be available to schools throughout the country for the new term, starting in September 2010.

    The Monaghan United Show Racism The Red Card posters which were distributed throughout the county in the past 2 years are used as an example of the Anti Racism work that is ongoing in Ireland in the chapter on Human Dignity in the Civil, Social and Political Education (CSPE) books for the coming year. Questions in relation to the programme and the poster are included in the book.

    Monaghan United FC are delighted to be part of the Show Racism The Red Card Programme and have won an award from the FAI for their efforts in this area as they strive to make Soccer in Monaghan an all inclusive sport.

    It's a long trip to the southern capital to take on Cork City Foras Co-op this Friday evening (23rd April). Despite all the turbulence in the past season the 'Corkonians' have adapted well to the First Division and are chasing leaders Waterford United for top spot and Cork people don't do second.

    Speaking of Waterford United nobody outside Monaghan United appeared to give us a chance of taking points off them, this is despite the fact that Waterford haven't won in 12 seasons or scored in eight visits to Gortakeegan. Without doubt even the confidence of the most confident Monaghan supporters were dented when they discovered that once again through injury we were without one of our top strikers - Karl Bermingham and also missing for family reasons was captain Dom Tierney and Waterford came into this game on full points.
