MOST ENJOYABLE DAY

Last Monday, local youths and Gardai teamed up once again for their annual match at Dalymount Park.

The game, organised by the MOST (Montpellier and O’Devaney Gardens Striving Together) project and the Bohemian Foundation, aims to cement links between Gardai from the Bridewell Garda Station and young people involved with the MOST Garda Youth Diversion Project.

It was attended and supported by local TD Maureen O’Sullivan and Lord Mayor of Dublin Mícheál Mac Donncha.

Bohemians first-team players and Bohemian Foundation volunteers Shane Supple and Oscar Brennan were also in attendance to lend their support.

CHARITY GAME THIS SATURDAY

BOHEMIANS v IRELAND AMPUTEE TEAM
Saturday August 5, Dalymount Park, 11.30am

Join us this Saturday for what promises to be a fun day as the Bohemians first team host the Ireland Amputee Team in a charity game at Dalymount Park (11.30am).

The game will act as a fundraiser for the medical costs of former Bohs youth player Stefan Balog, who sadly had to have his right leg amputated earlier this year after an accident.

Aged 20, Santry man Stefan is also a former pupil of Virgin Mary National School and Trinity Comprehensive Secondary School.

As well as facing a major readjustment in his life, Stefan is also facing an extensive medical bill as a result of his surgery.

There is no entry fee to Saturday’s game but there will be bucket collections and we ask you to donate generously.

There will also be a bucket collection at Bohs’ SSE Airtricity League game against Bray Wanderers the previous night.

If you are unable to make either game, you can donate directly here: https://www.gofundme.com/stefan-medical-fund

With just one defeat in 13 league games this season, Graham Lawlor’s Bohs under-19s sit top of the SSE Airtricity Northern Elite Division.

It’s rare they get to showcase their skills at Dalymount Park. But tomorrow they host Sheffield United U18s there in a friendly at 7pm.

Get down and show your support – they deserve it.

Cork City game refixed

The postponed SSE Airtricity League Premier Division fixture between Cork City and Bohemians has been rescheduled for Monday, 31st July at Turner’s Cross with a kick-off time of 7.45 pm.

“WE NEED TO BOUNCE BACK TOGETHER”

Manager Keith Long is demanding an improved performance as Bohemians aim to climb up the table once more.

Long’s side welcome Derry City to Dalymount Park looking to get back to winning ways after successive defeats to Dundalk and Finn Harps.

Prior to that, Bohs were in good form having picked up 10 points from their previous four games.

That run, coupled with the manner of their unlucky 1-0 defeat against Dundalk two weeks ago, described by Long as Bohs’ “best 90-minute performance of the season,” gave them every reason to go up to Ballybofey last week confident of getting a result.

A win would have put Bohs eight points ahead of Harps and put some distance between them and the relegation zone.

Instead, despite taking the lead through Dinny Corcoran, who once again dovetailed superbly with playmaker Keith Ward for the goal, Bohs fell to a disappointing 2-1 defeat and saw their lead over Harps cut to just two points.

Long said: “We performed badly up in Finn Park. We got what we deserved out of the game – nothing.

“It was a poor display overall and we cannot afford to perform at that level and expect to get anything.

“We came back from the break quite strongly and, although we lost against Dundalk last time out at Dalymount, our level of performance that night was impressive.

“That’s the frustrating part. Having done well previously to then go to Ballybofey and fail to impose ourselves on the game was difficult for us all to take.”

Long, however, will not allow his side to lick their wounds. They remain in seventh place and just a point off sixth and five points off tomorrow’s opposition Derry City in fifth.

But he knows his side will have to be at their very best to beat a Candystripes side who have enjoyed the bragging rights over the Gypsies in all six meetings between the teams in all competitions since Kenny Shiels took charge at the start of last season.

Long added: “We have to play with more quality, more aggression and more intensity to get anything from the game.

“We need to bounce back together from the disappointment of last week and concentrate on getting better. The atmosphere around the team and the club is good and we want that to continue.

“Nothing is as important as being loved and valued – the lads love playing for this club and we need to see that passion in every performance until the end of the season.

“If we can do that, we know that the fans in the Jodi will get behind us as they have done all year.”

TEAM NEWS

Skipper Derek Pender (hamstring) remains out meaning new signing Dan Casey could keep his place at right-back having made his debut in Ballybofey last week.

Warren O’Hora (illness) returns to the squad and could take the place of Rob Cornwall, who is suspended.

“We can’t let our performance levels drop”

FINN HARPS v BOHEMIANS
SSE Airtricity League
Friday July 14th, Finn Park, 8pm

After delivering what Keith Long believes was their best 90-minute performance of the season, Bohemians are determined standards will not drop against Finn Harps tomorrow.

Eighth-placed Harps host seventh-placed Bohs at Finn Park with just five points separating the sides.

Having amassed 10 points from their previous four games, a confident Bohs came unstuck against champions Dundalk eight days ago.

An 89th-minute suckerpunch was all that separated the sides as the Lilywhites made it five wins in a row.

But Bohs earned much praise for their performance and will have been disappointed not to have earned at least a point for their efforts.

Manager Long said: “We had shown in patches in other games what we are capable of but I think that’s the best we’ve played over 90 minutes all season.

“We have to keep searching for that level of performance. The challenge for us now is to replicate that.”

Harps, another team battling for survival, present a different challenge.

Long added: “Finn Harps are obviously in and around us at the moment, so it’s an important game for both teams.

“We cannot afford to let our performance levels drop.

“Harps are a very resilient and determined team. They pick up results and are very effective, so we have to be ready for them.

“Our drive and determination is going to have to match theirs.”

TEAM NEWS

Bohs welcome back Dan Byrne and Oscar Brennan from suspension.

Georgie Poynton, who sat out the Dundalk game due to the terms of his loan arrangement, also returns.

New recruits Ciaran O’Connor (on loan from Dundalk) and Keith Dalton (signed from Dundalk) will go straight into the matchday squad after playing in Saturday’s friendly against FC United of Manchester.

It is hoped that former Sunderland defender Dan Casey, who signed on Tuesday, will also feature in the squad should international clearance come through in time. He also featured against FC United as a trialist.

Bohs will, however, be without skipper Derek Pender (hamstring) and fellow defender Warren O’Hora (illness).

Meanwhile, Jamie Doyle and Kaleem Simon have left the club by mutual consent, while fellow winger Dean Casey has joined Cabinteely until the end of the season to gain first-team experience.
