Derry Get Revenge, 15 Years Later

Tues 8th June 2010 – Airtricity League Division 1
Athlone Town 1-3 Derry City

Cast your mind back to 1995 … Derry come to Athlone on the last day of the season, in poll position to win the League. All that stands in their way is the down and out Athlone Town team. Dundalk are a close 2nd and any unlikely slip up could hand them the title. Game kicks off … and Donal Golden scores almost straight away! A heroic performance from Town in a meaningless game for them, a performance which is matched throughout the season would have seen them contend for the title. Derry get a late equaliser but its too little too late and the FAI officials have to drive like theres no tomorrow to get the trophy fom the Midlands to the North East.

Finally, 15 years on, Derry got revenge
