As a result of the tremendous support Longford Town FC received yesterday, #Longford was trending on Twitter.

LTFC fans flew the red and black flag high in honour of the occasion, showing great encouragement for the squad.

Their exhuberance wasn’t confined to the pitch side, as supporters took to Twitter to voice their love for the team and express interest in the game. Many people however were very confused as to how #Longford was trending.

Longford Town played Bray Wanderers in Carlisle Grounds, yesterday, October 28 which resulted in a 2-2 draw, much to the delight of both players and fans.

The second play-off will take place this Friday, November 1 in City Calling Stadium. It remains to be seen if the excitement will build up enough to see #Longford trend for the second time in a week.
