Longford Town are about to embark on their first Premier Division campaign since 2007.
Longford’s Player of the Year, Gary Shaw celebrated a job well done in 2014 and jetted off to Seoul, South Korea for a holiday. Although Longford are a popular club in the midlands of Ireland, not many would expect fans of the Town to be frequenting the South Korean capital.
However, there are, believe it or not, a group of fans living in the city. According to Longford’s official website, Shaw requested the contact details of the fans in question and duly met them in a bar in Itaewon, Seoul.
Evidence that one can take the men out of the Town but can’t take the Town out of the men!
