First Blood To Longford

Monday 14th March 2011. EA Sports Cup Prelim. Round
Longford Town 2-1 Athlone Town. Flancare Park.

Athlone Town bowed out of the 2011 EA Sports Cup at the Preliminary Round stage after a 2-1 defeat at the hands of local rivals Longford Town.
Athlone fielded a team containing 5 school goers in the 1st installment of the 2011 El Classico series and it was one of the young guns, Alan Coffey who pulled a goal back for the Original Town.
But alas Longford took the bragging rights (for 3 weeks at least) via a well taken free kick from former Inter Milan hopeful Craig Walsh and a well worked goal from Don Cowan.

So Athlone can now forget this Mickey Mouse competition and concentrate on the League 🙂
