"All That's Left" Steven Trimble's Column

Drogheda United goalkeeper Steven Trimble gives his views on the goings on at the Louth club as well as the League of Ireland in his second column for "The League of Ireland Interview Show" Blog.

90 minutes of training and 90 minutes playing time is all that’s left for most LoI clubs around the country.

However if you’re one of the lucky clubs fighting for a play-off the next 90 will determine whether you look at your season as a success or as a failure.

However for us the season is basically over with a bitter loss to Dundalk in the final derby of the season. That win puts them ahead 2 - 1 (and 1 draw) on wins however our win last time in Oriel Park ended a 13 year wait for our fans! (Something we can smile about)
It would have been nice to finish the season with a win against our rivals but sometimes in football things don’t go to plan!

On a positive note we banished the demons from the bray game! Big lesson learned there. So second bottom is where we will finish?

Some will determine that as a failure, however ask any of our fans what they think and I can guarantee they will say it’s been a success! We retained our premier division status and with a team people were writing off 3 games in!!

I think we picked up our first point (a 1 all draw with Galway also my debut) 7 games in so after a very rocky start it was good to steady the ship.

We obtained our goal of staying up and with that positive hopefully we will go into our final home game against Pats looking to better earlier results against them! 11 goals conceded in 3 games is not a remarkable record and personally I don’t want to make it 12+ in 4 so a clean sheet and 3 points will do nicely!
