LOI LAST MAN STANDING 2013

The Bohemians Last Man Standing competition is BACK for 2013.

Click here to enter.

We will be using the League of Ireland Premier and First division fixtures, starting with the opening day fixtures on March 8th.

The Last Man Standing competitions have raised over €20,000 for Bohemians in the last three season and the same amount has been given out in prize money.

These competitions have raised vital funds for the club and we aim to continue our efforts to support Bohs on and off the pitch. We encourage all true Gypsies to enter the competition and to recruit friends and family members to join in. For this series, the entry fee is just €10

It’s easy to take part and there’s fun and excitement in the competition, as well as the satisfaction of knowing that half of all the entry fees goes to Bohemian Football Club. There’s also potentially a massive prize for the winner of the competition.

To play, you pick a team from the League of Ireland in week one. If they win you go through to next round where you pick another team (you cannot pick the same team twice). If your team loses or draws you are out. Simple as that.

If you join the competition you get an email notice ahead of each round of fixtures with a deadline to reply with your selection.

This continues until we have a Last Man Standing (or woman, as we have had more than one female winner!), who picks up the prize money. If more than one person is still standing after 10 matches, then they will share the pot of all entry fees received.

SQUAD BUILDING CONTINUES

Bohemian FC has signed 20 players for the 2013 senior squad, as manager Aaron Callaghan and assistant Owen Heary continue building their team.

The latest new recruits to Bohemians are: goalkeeper Dean Delany (from Shelbourne), forward Darragh Hanaphy (from Newry City), forward Chris Lyons (from UCD), midfielder Niall Forrester (from Sacred Heart, previously with Shamrock Rovers Under-19s) and midfielder Conor O’Brien, son of former assistant manager Liam O’Brien and a former Bohemian under-19 player, who returns to Ireland after a period in the United States.

Rejoining Bohemians again for next season are Dave Mulcahy, Kevin Devaney and Karl Moore, while Owen Heary has also re-signed as a player.

Callaghan was particularly delighted at re-signing former St Pat’s man Mulcahy (right) and said: “Dave’s vast experience was vital last season in helping our young squad adapt to the Airtricity Premier Division.”

Squad members announced earlier this month were: Ryan McEvoy, Derek Pender, Luke Byrne, Keith Buckley, Greg Murray, Michael Barker, Dave Scully, Roberto Lopes, Stephen Traynor, Andy Mulligan and John O’Connor, all re-signed from 2012, along with former UCD left back Ciaran Nangle.

Manager Callaghan hopes to add several more players before training resumes on 14 January, adding: “Having the squad together for a pre-season is very important not just in terms of fitness but tactically and mentally, getting the lads ready for what will be a tough campaign.

“We can no longer compete with most of the teams in the league as far as budget is concerned, but with most of the squad having played here last season they will have the confidence to go out and express themselves on the pitch and play football the Bohemian way.

“I know the fans appreciated last season the way we tried to play football and the support was phenomenal. The backing of the fans meant so much to the dressing room especially when we didn’t do well.”

“We have already arranged two warm-up games against Longford and Athlone in Dalymount (details will be announced in club website when confirmed).”

Meanwhile,  Callaghan has appointed Paul Somers as chief scout for Bohemian FC.

Paul, who is a UEFA “A” licence coach, worked with UCD and managed St Patrick’s Athletic’s under-19 team.

May your love shine a light!

Ahead of last week’s launch of a book comprising of over 70 of the best articles to appear on Come Here To Me, we were delighted to be able to republish one of Ciaran Murray’s Bohemians-related posts from the acclaimed blog…

“Walking up the North Circular Road, it’s impossible not to be taken in by the site of the historic floodlights of Dalymount Park. Part of Dublin’s skyline for over fifty years, they stand like dinosaurs from another age, beacons calling the League of Ireland faithful to Phibsboro on match nights.

These kinds of pylons are a rare, dying breed proper to stadiums in the lower echelons of football, and reminders of its urban, working class roots. Nestled behinds rows of Victorian houses and Phibsboro Shopping center, finding Dalymount without them would be a struggle….”
