El Classico – Merde!

Saturday 17th July 2010, Airtricity League Division 1
Longford Town 2-1 Athlone Town

Athlone made the short trip to Flancare Park on Saturday for the latest installment of the Midlands El Classico … and to say it was Merde is an understatement. Town fielded 2 new loan signings Ryan McEvoy and Jason Hughes and although the 2 lads got stuck in, the team as a unit were nothing short of a shambles. Being 2-1 up and conceding another 5 is shocking … throwing away 4-0 leads with 18 minutes to go is abysmal … but losing El Classico is plain and simple unforgivable.
Other than that I hope winger Ciaran Maloney makes a speedy recovery from the 2nd half facial injury!

An empty Flancare Park says everything about the interest both sides generate
