Longford Town FC player, local lad Aodh Dervin
Longford Town supporters will be delighted to see football back in Bishopsgate Stadium after weeks of uncertainty when Shamrock Rovers II are visitors to the Strokestown Road venue this Saturday night, kick-off 7.30pm.
With all the controversy over Limerick and clubs not happy with the inclusion of Shamrock Rovers all was agreed last week and all the First Division clubs could plan for the forthcoming season.
In an ideal world Limerick would have stayed in the league and then there would be no fuss with the inclusion of Shamrock Rovers second string to make it a ten team league. In the end Limerick didn't apply for a licence and the original fixtures stood.
