Match report: Bohemians 0 St Patrick’s Athletic 1

Bohemians are still in search of their first victory of the season after going down 1-0 in their first Dublin derby of the season on Saturday.

Ronan Coughlan’s second half header was enough to take all three points in a very tight and competitive game at a sun-soaked Dalymount Park.

The Gypsies, who did the double last season against St Pat’s and were on an impressive nine-game undefeated streak against the visitors, made two changes to the team that let slip a two-goal lead to Longford Town the week previous.

In came Andy Lyons and Dawson Devoy, who were away last week with the Ireland U21s, replacing Keith Ward and Rory Feely.

Although there was little between the sides, and as a fascinating clash of styles unfolded, 4-2-3-1 for the hosts versus a fluid 3-5-2 for the visitors, it was Bohs who created the first two half-chances.

The first came from a bit of pinball in the Pat’s area from a whipped Anto Breslin corner. But as the ball fell invitingly for Ross Tierney, the youngster just couldn’t make contact as he swung and the ball trickled into the arms of the on-loan Liverpool goalkeeper Vitezslav Jaros.

Bohs’ best avenue of a breakthrough looked to be from Liam Burt who looked a threat throughout, and was finding some good space on the left wing. He was slipped in behind the Saints backline from an Andy Lyons through ball.

The pacey Scotsman showed good feet to cut inside and smash a low drive through a cluster of legs that was well blocked and eventually scrambled wide for a corner kick.

Stephen O’Donnell’s St Pat’s have started the season well with an encouraging draw away at champions Shamrock Rovers, followed by an injury-time victory against Drogheda United, and they really should have broken the deadlock midway through the first half.

Some sloppy play at the back saw Rob Cornwall dispossessed on the edge of his own area but Robbie Benson, under pressure from the recovering Cornwall, dragged his effort just wide of Talbot’s far post.

St Pat’s began to dominate possession, with Coughlan and Mattie Smith looking a threat in behind and clever movement.

With little goalmouth threat as the hosts held their shape well, the Saints came armed with some clever corner routines, which could have paid dividends before the break but Lee Desmond was unable to direct his powerful header goalwards.

The second half started very much a case of copy and paste of the first, as both teams failed to wear each other down with the Inchicore side building well from the back.

Cornwall had a very good chance to give Bohs the lead with a free header at the back post, from another good Breslin delivery.

It took until just after the hour mark for one of the visitors’ smart set pieces to pay off, as Coughlan rose highest from Benson’s inswinging corner to power a header home past the helpless Talbot, who could only push the ball into the roof of the net. That’s two in two now for the ex-Sligo Rovers man.

Bohs finally sprung to life as the urgency in their play increased greatly, but they struggled to carve out that one clear-cut equalising opportunity, with Jaros making just one save throughout the 90 minutes.

The impressive visitors, with a midfield trio of Chris Forrester, Jamie Lennon and Benson just had too much guile and graft about them and saw out the game in excellent fashion to keep their unbeaten start to the season intact. The final whistle was met with a huge roar of relief from the travelling party as they find themselves joint top of the league

Bohs were left frustrated with their new-look attack still finding their feet. Up next is a trip to Oriel Park on Friday to face Dundalk.

Bohemians v St Patrick's Athletic - SSE Airtricity League Premier Division

Match report: Galway United 3 Bohemians 1

Bohemians travelled to Eamonn Deacy Park looking to build on last week’s opening day win at home to Treaty United.

But Bohs didn’t really get going in the first half and were lucky not to be behind early on before the home side eventually opened the scoring on the half-hour mark through Rachel Kearns.

The goal came following a collision, although the striker appeared to push defender Jade Reddy into the onrushing goalkeeper Niamh Coombes as she came out to the ball, which left Kearns to tap home into an empty net.

Five minutes later, it was 2-0 to the home side. Captain Shauna Fox launched a clearance towards the Bohs backline who failed to deal with the ball, which left Kearns to chase the ball down with Coombes.

Coombes won out initially, but the ball fell to Kate Slevin who shot first time into an empty net.

Bohs did well to get to the interval only two down. Manager Sean Byrne made four changes at the break, as he looked to bring a better performance in the second half.

But it went from bad to worse on the hour mark as Shauna Brennan’s throw-in found Chloe Singleton and she composed herself before flighting in a delightful cross, which found Lyndsey McKey in the six-yard box and she made no mistake from close range.

That goal seemed to kick Bohs into life and they started to play a better and eventually got back into this match in the 71st minute.

Chloe Darby swung in a corner kick that deceived everyone including keeper Maja Zajc and it fizzled into the back of the net to give the team hope.

Darby went very close to grabbing her and Bohs’ second as her long range free-kick cannoned off the crossbar and Galway managed to clear the danger and hold off for all three points.

An overall strong performance from the home side, who thoroughly deserved to win this match.

Bohs’ young side must pick themselves up during this Easter break and come back rejuvenated as they welcome Cork City to Dublin for their next fixture on Saturday April 17th.

Bohemians: Niamh Coombes, Paula Doran, Jade Reddy, Isobel Finnegan, Chloe Flynn (C), Ally Cahill, Sophie Watters, Chloe Darby, Abbie Brophy, Bronagh Kane, Niama Chemaou.

BOHEMIANS v ST PATRICK’S ATHLETIC
SSE Airtricity League
Saturday April 3 2021, 6pm
Live on WatchLOI.ie

Keith Long has urged his Bohemians side to show their mettle after they shot themselves in the foot in the opening two games of the season.

There was plenty to be encouraged about by both performances but the Gypsies will be kicking themselves with just one point to show for their efforts.

In the season opener a fortnight ago away to Finn Harps, Bohs had by far the more chances to win the game but a defensive error in the first half was punished by Adam Foley who was allowed in one-on-one with James Talbot to score the only goal of the game.

But last week’s collapse was altogether more frustrating. Bohs were 2-0 ahead against Longford Town at Dalymount Park at half-time thanks to goals from Georgie Kelly and the lively Ross Tierney.

In reality, the interval lead could have more than double that such were the opportunities the home side created in an exciting first half performance, and Bohs continued to dominate proceedings until the 65th minute or so.

Ultimately, it was another unfortunate lapse in concentration that turned this game on its head – Bohs’ efforts to clear the ball from a dangerous position were too casual, which allowed Longford Town supersub Conor Davis in to claw one back.

From a position of being outplayed for much of the game, Longford’s tails were up and they sensed blood – and it was Davis again who swooped in at the back post to claim a share of the spoils for the visitors.

Long said: “Tomorrow’s game is a chance now for us to show our mettle. There is no doubt that we are all disappointed with our results and performances in the opening two games and there would be no better way to get our season fully up and running with a win against St Pat’s.

“We squandered a two-goal lead last week despite having the better of the play for most of the game. We should have been a goal or two more to the good before conceding the first goal.

“We looked nervous after that and Longford to their credit took advantage. We will need to improve and it is important that we do not come away from the values that have served us well in recent seasons.

“It will take time for new players coming to a new club with different demands being placed on them but the basics of the game remain the same, and need to be respected.

“There have been some positives in the form of Ross Tierney over the opening two games and it was great for Georgie Kelly to open his account for the club – on another day he could have had a hat-trick.”

Bohs will be aiming to build on those signs of encouragement when Stephen O’Donnell’s Saints come to Dalymount Park.

St Pat’s have started well with four points from their opening to games – a draw away to Shamrock Rovers on opening night and a win at home to Drogheda United last Saturday.

Long added: “We know it will be very difficult against a Pat’s side who will be brimming with confidence after their last-minute winner against Drogheda last week.

“But we understand the task ahead. Our focus is on trying to win the game. We must do the basics well, work hard, be aggressive and function as a team. If we can do that we will give ourselves a chance to win.”

A message from Chris Brien as he steps down as club president

Dear supporter,

I am writing to inform you that I took the decision to resign from the board at our meeting on Tuesday night.

It was my intention to stand down at the next AGM but I have decided to go early as the board is about to commence a strategic review and I felt I should not be involved in that if I was not going to be there to see it through.

It has been very much a rollercoaster ride since I joined the board as finance director in 2009 to stepping down as president for the second time in 2021.

We went from terminating players’ contracts, tough negotiations with creditors, bankers, PFAI and FAI to clearing all our debts and doing so while remaining in the Premier Division the whole time.

READ MORE

All of this was achieved by members and fans working together towards a common goal of saving the club and putting it on a sustainable footing.

In that time there has been great growth in so many areas of the club thanks to all involved. On the pitch, we have had success under Keith Long in qualifying for Europe for two successive seasons. But we are no longer just a first team – we are a proper club that is once again truly embedded in our community.

Great credit must be given to everyone involved but particularly the various boards during this period and, of course, Matt Devaney who did a great job as president between 2013 and 2017.

We only borrow the club for a short period of time and all we can do is try and pass it on in a better position than when we got it. I hope I played my part in achieving this over the last number of years.

I know some people will say we lost Dalymount during this period. But while we lost ownership, we secured it as our home ground for generations.

This is something many previously thought unthinkable and this represents a far better future for our club than moving away from Phibsborough.

Working closely with Dublin City Council, Shelbourne and local stakeholders, we have a rebuilt modern stadium and shared space to look forward to that will cement Dalymount Park’s place in the heart of our community.

I mentioned at previous AGMs that getting training facilities was a priority of mine and I am delighted that the club managed to get agreement with DCU before I stood down.

As well as providing first class training facilities for our players, this exciting partnership of shared values will leave lasting connections in football, social inclusion, social outreach and academic programme collaboration.

Before I go, I would like to thank everyone who supported me throughout the years as nothing would have been done without that support.

This has always been a team effort and we achieved everything by working together. This was evident right from those darkest of days right through to the present day. It has been particularly remarkable and appreciated since the onset of the pandemic, which could have proved to be a chaotic time for the club if it wasn’t for the loyalty of our members, supporters and sponsors.

This was never a vanity project and I had always decided to go when I thought others could do a better job than me. As a pensioner, I am beginning to feel my age and some new blood and fresh ideas will be good for the club.

I think that as we have grown over the last few years, things have started to move more quickly than we could have anticipated and now is the time for a new, energetic and more vibrant president who can lead us into what I believe can be a very bright future.

I know I rejoined the board before having resigned before, but I will not be doing that again. The first time I joined the board, we made the biggest loss in the club’s history and in my second time on the board, we have agonisingly gone a full year of games behind closed doors, so I don’t want to bring any more bad luck!

I will, however, continue my work with the Bohemian Foundation, so I will still be around and, obviously, if the board feel I can help with any particular issue, then I am more than happy to get involved.

Finally, I would like to thank you for allowing me to be your president. It has been a huge honour and privilege. I hope you feel I have made a positive contribution.

Thank you

Chris Brien

BOHS CROWNED AMPUTEE LEAGUE CHAMPIONS

Congratulations to the Bohemians team who have been crowned Irish Amputee Football Association National League champions for the first time in the club’s history.

The 2020 season came to a halt as a result of Covid-19 restrictions but the Irish Amputee Football Association National League have ruled that the remaining fixtures could not be completed, the title should be awarded to Bohs.

The IAFA noted that the team “topped the table through match days 1, 2 and 3, and should be declared 2020 champions on a points per game basis” and intend making a proper trophy presentation when the easing of restrictions allows them to do so.

Bohemians manager Brian Doyle said: “We are absolutely delighted to become IAFA National League champions for the first time in the club’s history.

“Obviously the circumstances are bittersweet but the squad are thrilled to see their hard work rewarded with a much-coveted league title.

“We had a 100% record in the games we did manage to play pre-Covid, scoring 25 goals and conceding just two, which shows just how efficient we were as a team.

“I can’t pay tribute enough to the players who have continued to work extremely hard over lockdown, partaking in two training sessions a week over Zoom – this is a testament to their drive and determination to bring silverware back to the club.

“The support we have received has been phenomenal too, particularly from Chris Brien, and with special thanks to Des Kelly Interiors who provided the team with new kits.

“Everyone has really made the boys feel part of something bigger.

“We dedicate this win to every single Bohs supporter and we will work harder than ever to become the first side to win back-to-back league titles!”

Qatar World Cup: Bohemian FC and Amnesty call on FAI to speak up for migrants’ rights

As Ireland face Qatar in an international friendly tonight, Bohemian FC and Amnesty International Ireland jointly call on the FAI to use this moment to pressure FIFA and the Qatari authorities on the long-standing abuses of migrant workers.

These abuses have included unpaid wages, excessively long working hours, severe restrictions on movement, appalling living conditions, and particularly in the case of domestic workers, verbal and physical abuse.

This treatment has been facilitated by the inherently abusive kafala (sponsorship) system. Migrants make up 90% of Qatar’s workforce and as such, the World Cup would not have been possible in the country without them.

While many reforms have been committed to, including the abolishment of the kafala system, the implementation of the reforms have been weak and are already seeing backlash from parts of the local business community, making this a critical moment in the fight for workers’ rights in Qatar.

“Football fans and players should be able to take part and enjoy the World Cup, confident that the migrant workers who made the World Cup possible are not victims of human rights abuses,” said Colm O’Gorman, Executive Director of Amnesty International Ireland.

“The FAI have a responsibility under international human rights standards to use their leverage to prevent human rights abuses that they are linked to. So we’re calling on the FAI to use the spotlight of the World Cup to come out publicly in support of the human rights of the workers, and to urge FIFA to take urgent action.

“After years of pressure, the Qatari government committed in 2017 to reforming its abusive kafala sponsorship system, amongst other major promises of change. But these reforms are fragile and are facing backlash, so this is a critical moment.

“We need the international pressure to continue to build and the FAI have a clear role in that.”

Amnesty International and Bohemian FC previously worked together on the ‘Refugees Welcome’ away jersey, which was made possible due to the generosity of our main sponsor Des Kelly Interiors.

Many Bohs fans have been instrumental in coming out in support for of human and migrant rights in Ireland, and Amnesty has campaigned on this particular issue ever since the hosting of the World Cup was given to Qatar in 2010.

“Workers’ rights are human rights, and we want to show solidarity with the people who’ve built the very stadiums that enable this World Cup to take place,” said Daniel Lambert, Chief Operating Officer for Bohemian FC.

“We are calling on the FAI to use their leverage with FIFA and Qatar, and speak out to try and achieve real, long-lasting change for migrant workers. We and our supporters want the legacy of the World Cup 2022 to be a positive one, not one where people are being horrifically exploited.

“We know that football can be a force for great good, let’s grasp this opportunity to demonstrate this on our biggest stage, the World Cup.”

Background:

As FIFA member associations, national Football Associations (FAs) are expected to comply with FIFA’s own Human Rights Policy. Further, as bodies that – through their business relationships with FIFA – profit financially from revenues generated by the World Cup, FAs also have a responsibility under international human rights standards to use their leverage to prevent human rights harm to which they are linked.

MATCH REPORT: BOHEMIANS 2 LONGFORD TOWN 2

The epitome of a game of two halves was played out at a chilly Dalymount Park as Bohemians blew a two-goal lead against newly-promoted Longford Town.

The Gypsies led 2-0 at the break and looked to be cruising thanks to goals from Georgie Kelly and Ross Tierney.

But an inspired second half Longford Town substitution saw Conor Davis grab a brace, and so it was Daire Doyle and his troops leaving Phibsborough much the happier with the point.

Keith Long had opted for the one change from the opening night defeat on the road to Ollie Horgan’s now table-topping Finn Harps, with Keith Ward coming in for Ciaran Kelly and, in doing so, reverting to his more familiar 4-2-3-1.

The last competitive meeting between these sides saw Bohs edge a hugely entertaining contest in the quarter-final of the 2019 FAI Cup. James Talbot proved the hero that night, brilliantly denying opposite number Lee Steacy’s decisive penalty as the home side went through 5-4, after a 1-1 stalemate AET.

And just like that evening, there was little to choose between the sides in the opening exchanges this time around.

The hosts then just started to lift the tempo slightly, moving the ball quicker and began to pin the visitors back, resulting in the breakthrough with 20 minutes played.

Liam Burt’s low cross was almost behind front man Kelly, but the talismanic striker showed his class to turn on a six-pence, control and finish with his left foot all in the one move, under the helpless Steacy.

Just a minute later, the home side thought they had doubled their lead, only to be met with an incredible double save from the busy Steacy.

Ross Tierney burst through the Longford defensive line and smashed his shot low to the left, and just as Burt looked to follow up and tap home, he was met with the cat-like reflexes of Steacy to bravely block yet again.

The Gypsies were beginning to find their groove now, and got the second goal their pressure deserved as the diminutive Tierney, sharply turned on the edge of the area and volleyed home superbly just before the half hour mark.

Last season’s runners-up sensed blood now and missed yet another glorious double chance to extend their lead as Kelly’s side-foot strike was sharply saved, with Keith Buckley volleying over the rebound.

Doyle’s men came flying out of the traps last week with a fantastic 2-0 home win against Derry City, and showed that they carried a threat with Joe Gorman looking dangerous from set pieces and the exciting Dean Byrne causing trouble down the left wing, having a good chance well saved by Talbot just before the break.

The Town were much improved in the second half and showed again just why they won’t be any pushovers this season with a much more spirited effort, and halved the deficit with 15 minutes remaining.

Bohs, a defender temporarily down due to a James Finnerty head injury and possibly showing signs of complacency with the two-goal cushion, were punished when a too-casual Bastien Héry was dispossessed close to the edge of his own area.

The ball spilled to substitute Davis, who went on a fantastic dribble through the entire Bohs rearguard all by himself before smashing the ball low across Talbot and into the back of the net.

Longford completed an incredible comeback – that didn’t look likely based on their first half performance – when Davis snuck in at the back post to tap home to get his second.

A tantalising low cross by Callum Warfiled was left by everyone in the Bohs defence, who appeared to think it was going to trickle out for a goal-kick. But supersub Davis had another idea, gambling that it would come through and he got his rewards by tapping home.

A bitterly frustrating first home game for the Gypsies, who will have to improve on this second half showing in next week’s Dublin derby against St Patrick’s Athletic at Dalymount Park (Saturday, 6pm).

But Longford showed a spirit and resolution that will no doubt serve as a threat to the rest of the division as the season progresses.

Bohemians v Longford Town - SSE Airtricity League Premier Division

Match report: Bohemians 6 Treaty United 2

Bohemians opened up the SSE Airtricity WNL 2021 campaign with a win over Treaty United at the Oscar Traynor Centre in a match that produced eight goals.

This fixture produced nine goals in Bohemians’ last home game of the 2020 season, with Treaty stealing the three points with a 5-4 win.

This time round, it was Bohs who took all three points as Sean Byrne and his management team masterminded a dominant performance over the opposition.

The Gypsies opened up the scoring in the eighth minute when Treaty United were put under pressure from their own kickout. Bronagh Kane was first to react to a bad pass from the Treaty goalkeeper and slotted the ball home into an empty net for an early lead.

In what could be a record, Kane added hers and Bohemians’ second goal just 37 seconds later as Treaty were put under immediate pressure from the tip-off and Chloe Darby won the ball in midfield before a quick pass to Naima Chemaou saw the striker play in Kane, who composed herself before slotting past Ryan.

Bohs grabbed their third in the 16th minute as a Paula Dorans throw found Chloe Darby. Her quick one-two with Abbie Brophy saw Darby break down the right before sending a pinpoint cross to Naima Chemaou in the box, she controlled the ball before volleying home a debut goal.

Bohemians were rewarded again for their pressure in the 37th minute as Kane won a free-kick near the sideline. Chemaou’s set piece found captain Sophie Watters’ run in the box. She controlled the ball before slotting a left-foot shot past Ryan.

Treaty pulled a goal back just before the interval – Aoife Cronin tapping home at the back post following a Rebecca Horgan cross.

The away side pulled another goal back 11 minutes after the break when an Emma Costelloe corner wasn’t dealt with by the Bohs defence, as the ball found its way to Shannon Parbat who fired home from close range.

Treaty United mounted more pressure on the Bohs defence and nearly grabbed a third goal when Cronin and Coombes clashed in the box, Cronin’s quick turn and shot looked destined for the net only for it to hit the post.

Bohs got back on track with the introduction of Aoife Robinson on the hour mark. The striker’s energy saw her dispossess a Treaty defender before playing a pass to Erica Burke and, when the ball fell back into the path of Robinson, she curled a right-foot shot into the top right-hand corner of the net, all within 36 seconds of entering the field of play.

With seven minutes remaining, Bohs hit their sixth goal when Watters won a free-kick near the corner flag, Chloe Darby swung in the resulting free which found Robinson unmarked at the back post to head home.

Darby went close to adding a seventh goal late on but her shot came back off the post, but it was all smiles for the women of Bohemians as they sit on top of the league after week one in the FAI WNL.

Bohemians: Niamh Coombes, Paula Doran, Jade Reddy, Isobel Finnegan, Chloe Flynn, Ally Cahill, Sophie Watters (Capt.), Chloe Darby, Abbie Brophy, Bronagh Kane, Naima Chemaou.

HIGHLIGHTS: BOHEMIANS 2 LONGFORD TOWN 2

Highlights of our first home game of the 2021 SSE Airtricity League season.

Goals from Georgie Kelly and Ross Tierney gave the Gypsies a half-time lead, but they will have felt they should have been further ahead at the back.

Failure to make those chances count and mistakes at the back allowed Conor Davis in twice in the final 15 minutes to give Longford a share of the spoils.
