A season to forget!

A difficult season, with the team starting to grow old together. Manager Donal Foley ofter struggles to put a team together due to injuries, sabbaticals, emigration and lack of ability. The season reaches it's nadir in December, when just nine players make the trip to Transport FC, resulting in a heroic 7-3 defeat. But gradually matters improve, with the youth policy again starting to churn out new recruits. Also, the clubs long running attempts to clone Shane O'Brien finally succeed, with "Medical Project Shane O'Brien 2" making an assured debut, before getting sent off in his second match. A late victory over Kinsealy finally ends the clubs relegation worries, whereupon a tearful Donal Foley announces his retirement. Also, at Loretto Park, the Dermot Mullins Treatment Centre is opened, along with the Alan Greenan Stand, which wobbles and weaves a little in either direction, before falling over.
