HUGHSEY: PLAYERS MUST REMAIN HUNGRY FOR SUCCESS
Updated 12 Jul : 18:56 by admin
Reflecting on last Thursday's disappointing 5-0 home defeat to Derry City in the Europa League, Town Manager Ian Hughes has challenged his players to remain hungry for success in the coming season.

"All players and staff are disappointed with the outcome on Thursday evening. We all know that kind of performance isn't good enough, especially with where we want to take this proud club in the coming seasons. We will endeavour to work hard and make sure that next time we qualify for Europe we will be more competitive. It's also imperative that the players remain hungry for success.

Taking nothing away from Derry, who are a good team and deserved their victory. Players now will have a few days off to reflect on the past two weeks before we continue preparations for the forthcoming season."


Following their Europa League exit The Black and Greens' pre season preparations for the 2014/5 season continue two weeks today with a friendly match away to Barmouth & Dyffryn United (ko 2.30 pm).

FIVE STAR DERRY CRUISE THROUGH EUROPA LEAGUE TIE
Updated 11 Jul : 11:34 by admin
UEFA Europa League
First Qualifying Round Second Leg
Thursday 10th July
Aberystwyth Town 0 Derry City 5

Aberystwyth Town's first ever home game in the UEFA Europa League ended in a heavy defeat as first half goals from Michael Duffy and Barry McNamee, and a second half hat trick from Rory Patterson saw rampant Derry City win easily at Park Avenue last night, thereby progressing to the Europa League Second Qualifying Round, on a 9-0 aggregate.


An almost sell out crowd of 1026, Town's highest home gate in a competitive game for eleven years, welcomed the sides out as Park Avenue was enveloped in a superb and electric atmosphere. Attacking the Dias Stand Aber started confidently, and Chris Venables headed Craig Williams' free kick wide with an early chance. Derry's left winger Michael Duffy then broke through Aber's back line only to be denied by home keeper Phil Draper, but poor defending from the resulting corner gifted Duffy a free header, and he gave the visitors an eleventh minute lead. Just three minutes later the Candystripes broke down the right, and McNamee this time was gifted a free header to double the lead. Derry City at this point looked confident, but to Aber's credit they did respond with an improved showing for the remained of the half. Geoff Kellaway emerged as the homesters' biggest threat, bursting past Dean Jarvis but then shooting wide, before colliding with Jarvis in an incident which again saw Town denied a penalty. Venables almost connected with Cledan Davies' cross, and Stuart Jones saw an effort go wide, but the Black and Greens were unable to get a crucial goal back to excite the Dias Stand before half time.

The second half comeback Town fans were dreaming of unfortunately failed to materialise, as clinical Derry killed the game stone dead with a triple strike. Mark Jones had a shot deflected wide for Aber, then Kellaway's goal bound shot was easily saved by Ged Doherty, but then on the hour a perfectly weighted ball over the top landed at the feet of Patterson in the box, and he scored with a nice finish under Draper. Antonio Corbisiero almost got a goal back from a free kick, but his effort was cleared off the line, then Mark Jones shot wide again, but Derry turned the screw with two late Patterson goals. In the 84th minute Duffy broke down the right to set up a tap in for the Northern Ireland International, and two minutes later Luke Sherbon felled Mark Timlin in the box, and Patterson scored his third rom the penalty spot to complete the rout.

In truth, after Europa League Fever had hit Town for two weeks,both ties were chastening experiences and will give a lot for the Management Team and Players to reflect on. Their challenge now is to ensure that such International matches become annual events at Park Avenue, and given time, Town will do themselves more justice on the European Stage.

MATCH PREVIEW: ABERYSTWYTH TOWN VS DERRY CITY
Updated 08 Jul : 22:07 by admin
UEFA Europa League
First Qualifying Round Second Leg
Thursday 10th July (ko 6.45pm)
Aberystwyth Town v Derry City

European Football is set for a welcome return to Aberystwyth’s Park Avenue on Thursday night as the Seasiders welcome Derry City to Wales for the 2nd leg of the Europa League clash.



Ian Hughes’ side go into the game on the back of a 4-0 defeat at Brandywell last week, however the result left a sour taste in the mouth after goalkeeper Mike Lewis was harshly sent-off for bringing down Rory Patterson in the box in the first half.

Aberystwyth found themselves a goal down before Lewis’ dismissal, as Patrick McEleney placed a neat effort into the bottom corner after fifteen minutes.

Substitute goalkeeper Phil Draper then replaced Craig Williams as Town were forced into a switch following the red card, but was unable to keep out Patterson’s resulting spot-kick.

Mark Timlin made it three immediately after the interval as he found space on the edge of the area and fired past a hapless Draper, before Barry McNamee scored the killer fourth goal late on which rounded off proceedings.

The Black and Greens’ last European fixture on home soil came some fifteen seasons ago when they played out a 2-2 draw against Maltese side Floriana in the Intertoto Cup, but eventually bowed out of the competition after losing the return leg.

Tickets for the game are almost at a sell-out, with around 80 remaining on sale. These tickets will be sold on a first served basis from the Morris & Bates office, and we expect them to sell out before kick-off.

A bumper matchday programme, edited by Dilwyn Roberts-Young will be on sale before kick-off priced at £3.00.

The club would like to inform Derry City supporters that Kanes Bar in the town centre will welcome all visitors prior to the game.
