Long to make managerial debut with Athlone Town

KEITH Long gets his Athlone Town managerial career up and running tonight (Friday) when the Town - without a point from the opening ten league games - entertain Bray Wanderers in the SSE Airtricity League Premier Division.

Long took over the job this week following the departure of Mick Cooke as manager.

Athlone have failed to get a point on the board in this season’s Premier Division with ten games gone. Bray Wanderers, Long’s former club (as a player and assistant manager), have surprised many people with their start to the season and defeated Dundalk last weekend. The Wicklow based side have 12 points from their opening ten games.

Kick-off in Lissywollen is scheduled for 7.45pm.
