Not nearly as much as we should. There's a few who are the ones who sing at away games, but it's mostly older lads who possibly ex-students or just local (me) and at home games there's a lot of young kids - who hopefully keep coming and bringing their mates. I'd love to see posters etc. around the college to bring people in and see (poss.) their mates in action. So much potential there when you look at college american football it's their pride pretty much

Your vocal support has increased a lot this year. It's the first time ye have ever brought a decent amount fans to Terryland that were singing. And to be fair they sang their hearts out.

When I was there in the 80's UCD had a decent fan base and most of them were students, judging by their scarfs. Fair few good looking birds too. Dumb as hell about football though. Not a sexest comment just an observation.

It was a close run thing, goals from Georgie Kelly, Liam Scales and deep inside injury time at the death Ryan Swan stretched out a boot to bust the bunker.
There was a time in History when this was a clash of Economic Classes... but not anymore. UCD Fans could be facing the prospect of 900 days in the First Division.

Yes, they appeared to be. I was at the Semi-Final aswell to compare both reactions.

I have some disquieting news, one of the celebrating U17s got booked after the winning goal was scored for The Students versus Harps today. It's all very 'new professionalism', this isn't what I signed up for when I became a UCD FAN.

Georgie Kelly, scored a hat-trick away to Athlone Town last Sat 07th Oct. in a 04- win for The Students.
His first equaled Willie Doyle (First Div 2004) and Ciarán "Killer" Kilduff (Prem Div 2010) with 15 league for a season.  His next broke the record and his last extended UCD AFC highest goalscorer for a season to 17.

For the Belfield game a pitch inspection for Sunday morning was announced yesterday.  It was a game between two LSL teams, so morning inspection would be reasonable.
The four other games that were called off were teams between with different Leagues, so a decision may have been expected earlier than Sunday morning.
However in The Herald Striker 2 weeks ago the pitch was described as "the soft Belfield turf" by Niall Feery.

Longford Town 0:2 UCD AFC (Georgie Kelly 2)
Longford had a fair bit of possesion early doors with a couple of off-target shots.  The Students started to ramp up attacks and were more accurate George Geogie Kelly, Jay Jayo McClelland, Daire DOC O'Connor all pulling the trigger but Longford 'keeper Mick Kelly saving with fist and feet.

But UCD's 2nd half goals were a thing of beauty. Kelly won back the ball in the peno area with an outstretched leg, captain Gary O'Neill picked up the pieces headed for the goal line and his low cross was tapped home by Kelly.  A few minutes later Jay McClelland drove into the box, withstood one tackle and kept possession to chip a cross the Kelly fired into the top corner, great stuff.  Winning when out in front is nice, the last time  UCD did that was the penultimate game of the season in 2009 when we lifted the Eircom First Division Championship in Athlone Town Stadium. #COYBIB

89th minute equaliser from Captain Gary O'Neill against 3rd placed Shels extended the lead at the top. Georgie Kelly   getting sent off after two yellows, 1st for standing up to Shels fouls, 2nd for falling under Shels fouls.  The first match of 3 matches on the road in 8 days.  Normal fixture schedule for an FC during a season.

Very good. He has continued where he left off with UCD club record of 17 goals last year. He wins balls when it appears he is at a disadvantage. At 0-0 in 2nd half away to Longford, didn't win the initial challenge when the ball was played into the box, he kept his balance and stretched to win the ball from defender and passed outside the box to Gary O'Neill who crosses back to him on goal-line for him to tap in. He's scoring for fun at the minute. He has nine league goals this year (including five in a row over two games).

He was suspended after 2 yellows against Shelbourne. I'd like him to stay with UCD and have a crack at beating his own highest scoring record. in a season

Yeah have heard good things. He is a player with good potential- Derry let him go a few seasons back but he is getting on the best at UCD so been good for him. Dery keeping a close eye on him recently. Wouldn't be suprised to see him come back at some stage.

 UCD were were 2nd best but are still a very good side . 

Certainly GUFC were first to almost every ball. One shot each from Gary O'Neill and Paul Doyle in first half and then a five minute spell in the second half with three shots was all UCD could muster.

Robbie Williams was happy to marshall the Galway defence from the back after McCormack's early goal.   UCD try to score therir way out of trouble but we are been found out by teams taking the lead and controlling the game.  In this second series we have drawn with Shels and lost to Galway, leaving still beating low placed sides aswell as overcoming Drogheda Utd, Finn Harps and Longford Town to keep the dominance.

Good win for Galway, great crowd singing throughout the game.

A moderate May of P4 W1 D1 L2, Losing to Galway Utd and Cabinteely brings us back to the chasing pack. The highlight was an 89th minute equaliser by captain Gary O'Neill against Shelbourne at Tolka. Keeping up a healthy recent League record against The Reds in the last four First Division seasons P15 W9 D2 L3.

SSE Airtricity League, Fri. 01st June UCD AFC v Cobh Ramblers, UCD Bowl, ko 19:45
UCD breaking from midfield is always great to watch, Kelly, McClelland, O'Connor, and Molloy bearing down on the visitors goal. With O'Neill and Sloggett mopping up in midfield. Cobh have had a quiet start but they remain a threat to everyone. Cobh reached the Play-offs (third) in 2016 with a half-season performance.

SSE Airtricity League, Fri 08th JUne, UCD AFC v Drogheda Utd, UCD Bowl, ko 19:45
Another top-of-the-table clash, the biggest game of the season so far. United will have played their back match the previous Monday (Shels Away). Both sides looking to win, both sides well able to take the Division by the scruff of the neck.
The match will showcase the quality in the Division with the pleasant atmosphere of leafy UCD Bowl in the June sunshine as a backdrop. #COYBIB

The month of June gained UCD 3 wins v Cobh (H), Drogs (H) and Finn Harps (H)that stretched the lead to seven points but after Longford Town's fine 1-5 away win at UCD Bowl our first league loss since July 28th 2017 v Cabo it brought the First Division leaders back to 4 points.

On Monday 02nd July 2018 UCD lost Georgie Kelly, UCD's record goalscorer for a league season(17 in '17), the current Division's leading scorer (14)to Premier Div leaders and all-round nice guys Dundalk FC.
Yousef 'Yoyo' Mahdy has taken up where Gorgeous Georgie left off, scoring a great break out goal v Shels (1-1) and playing through the team for a 0-3 away win v Wexford before 1 assist and 1 goal v Galway Utd. The forward tempo remains unabated with Winger [B}Neil Farrugia [/B} coming back into the first team after a long-term collar-bone injury. He should be set.

[Spoiler] UCD 2:0 Galway Utd was a great game, Conor Kearns saved a penalty, hooked the ball out from behind him before the side settled in with some fine play from the whole team end with Farrugia down the left another low cross, clip on from Mahdy to Daire O'Connor to fire home. Then playing out from the back Farrugia is set free on the right wings and beautiful inter-play between him and Mahdy. Farrugia draws Galway keeper and slips in Mahdy to tap into empty net.

It's great to watch:

@Steve Strewd, yes I do think he will do well. He's already picked a UEFA EL appearance. That's one. With 14 League goals he's in second place behind Pat Hoban. That's two.

In First Division he's dispossessed defenders in the penalty box and turned to score. He always looks for space for himself. AS you say he will have to take his opportunities, some of those will be his own creation rather than just receiving an opportunity.

There wasn't many who availed of the offer to show their Aviba stadium ticket for a discount. Perhaps some others still chose to pay the full price.

Thanks for the good wishes, we took another step towards the title but still two more wins to go.  Four League wins in a row, the fixtures have helped slowly ramping up to our closer rivals.  Conor Davis made his debut as substitute and wants to play.

Thought losing Georgie might have slowed ye down. Best team in it in what has been a really competitive season below ye. I know the three coming down last year would have preferred a 12 team PD but it has really helped the first division. Plus the addition of the play offs obviously. 

On the offer itself, I didn't expect many to turn up and by that I don't mean any disrespect to UCD or Cabo. Anyone I know who went to the Aviva the other night wouldn't cross the road to watch the League. UCD's offer got me thinking though. Wouldn't it be great if a condition of the FAI sanctioning these matches included a €5 domestic football tax in the ticket price that would go directly to the new company they set up to run the league? Split it between the 20 clubs, or add it to the prize money fund.

46,000 the other night. Thats €230k. Another game today and Liverpool are a bigger draw. €250k. Nearly €500k for the league for little or no work.

Now I doubt this would ever happen for a variety of reasons but it would be a bigger revenue earner than one club trying to make a few quid by running a promotion connected to the match.

Some very good points. Regarding UCD slowing down. The fixture list has suited us.  We have been tested but have had enough against the opposition. Regular bench striker Yousef 'Yoyo' Mahdy' has taken over where Gorgeous Georgie left off.  A fresh winger Neil Farrugia back from injury is like tightly wound spring just released.

yes your other idea about surcharge/tax connects directly with funding from football supporters. It sounds lucrative but it does take from the resources of football followers.  Corporate/White collar or funding from Govt/Public should bring in more resources than taxing each individual.

Some of the football followers at Aviva Stadium this week play the game, possibly they consider themselves players and may not identify with stakeholder fan until they view a greater event like a RoI International or those club matches at Aviva.

I'm no longer a League of Ireland above all other domestic leagues fan. Next week UCD (LOI) play Pike Rovers (LDL) and not non-League Pike Rovers as they have already been described.

This year UCD Leinster Senior League team reached quarters of Intermediate Cup (went out to winners Maynooth Univrsity Town FC) but doesnt get an entry in FAI Senior Cup draw. That's not FAI exclusion, that's precious domestic club concerns with their prestige if a club with lots of playing resources maximises their potential.  It's better to exclude them than have an unfavourable comparison when another club appears
to have two representatives ( two separate squads).
Even in 2013/14 when UCD (LSL) reached the FAI Intermediate Cup Final they were denied a place in the FAI Senior Cup draw.

 Why is the active and proven quality UCD (LSL) denied a spot but the passive and priveliged  UCD League of Ireland team gets a spot every year no matter their outcomes in the FAI Cup?

August was another big month signed Conor Davis 2 League wins, 1 draw and 2 cup wins kept a strong lead in the table and filled out the season. Davis with a goal on his full cup debut and one on his full league debut v Cobh Ramblers. Then a hat-trick away to Drogheda Utd and UCD are within a point of the title.

Two goals down but an 89' equaliser from winger Jay McClelland. Before running out comfortably in extra-time. Ranch 'keeper Sean Brazil had an incredible performance.
I believe first win for UCD after a tie went to extra-time, seven previous attempts incld. the first game of a tie going to extra-time before a losing replay. Third time UCD went two behind in a tie and won the tie. They all to go to a tie-breaker, the other two were replays.

September is already choc-a-block, that brilliant dominant display over Waterford reducing them to one shot on target, a penalty kick in the 2nd half. Deserved and expected from a team that's grown together for 3 and a bit years (mostly 3).
Again Davis opens the scoring so the whole side gets a tangible reward for their efforts. (Tangerines are part of the win bonuses at Belfield).

Hi the bronze, in front of Main Stand and behind goal ensuring the flags dont obscure adverts is the normal advice.

Your own Supporter Liaison Officer for Finn Harps has put together a beautiful travel advice for UCD Bowl.

Happy enough with that. Delighted for the players. They've hit every target expected of them and more to come this season.

Fair Play on the Finn Harps Fans who travelled they were in great voice and the point secures a play-off semi-final.

Well find ucd. Best team over the course of the season. Entertaining enough game last night, devoid of many chances though. Good craic in the away end. Good to see a healthy UCD support there and a good traveling support. If we take current form into the playoffs we'll take some beating . Having to wait so long now will be detrimental to us I fear though

Should be no fear in the play off unless it's against one of the other first divison teams ye lose against. Mood around Limerick is at an all time, even then ye beat us in 2015 when we were one of the form teams for the last series of games. As Billy said we need to go down and hope the current regime clear out and get people in the help rebuild the club from the current owner. He still deserves some praise for saving the club and bringing in an under age set up before it became mandatory but in all his talk about becoming sustainable and living within your means he went out and done the complete opposite instead.

There are THREE home SSE Airtricity League in a row. These upcoming matches are UCD Fans chance to enjoy the best of The Students as they compete again proven established teams.  With UCD support behind them the players can rise to the occasion and have an April to remember with great performances bringing the results.

SSE Airtricity League, Fri 05th Apr., UCD AFC w Waterford FC, The UCD Bowl, ko 19:45
The Blues return to Belfield for the first time in the League since their First Division championship season and last vist was a 2-1 FAI Senior Cup 1/4 Final win with David and Molloy The Students goalscorers.

SSE Airtricity League, Fri 12th Apr. UCD AFC w Derry City, The UCD Bowl, ko 19:45
"Break for The Border" Brexit Default Deadline-Day.  The first game of the second round of games against our nine Premier Division opponents. UCD we want to improve on the slow start of the 3-0 defeat in the first game.

SSE Airtricity League, Monday 15th April, UCD AFC w Cork City, The UCD Bowl, ko 19:45
This rearranged game will complete games against every PD opponent.  Daire O'Connor returns to Belfield with Cork and it brings to a close three mouth-watering ties.  All the UCD players deserve are continued support, let's show them that their efforts are appreciated. #COYBIB

@The Huntacha, Gaz has got his set-piece mojo back. 1 peno and two assists (one assist off the crossbar).



A nice win, sets The Students up for the twins tomorrow and Monday.

Premier Division, Fri 12th April,  UCD AFC v Derry City, The UCD Bowl ko 19:45

Premier Division, Monday 15th April, UCD AFC v Cork City, The UCD Bowl, ko 19:45

Two similar clubs that believe their own blurb.  In close season they each signed an UCD midfielder: Derry defensive; Cork dribbler, unpredictable outcome.

Tonight 15th Apr UCD AFC v Cork City, The UCD Bowl ko 19:45

UCD will have to raise their game after going down to a controlled performance from Derry City.  Cork can succeed with the same tactics of soaking up UCD possesion, breaking forward, scoring after corner kicks then kicking and pushing The Students over when they're too good.

Beauty and The Beast game, contrast in styles.  The weather will be a great leveller just like the rollers that went out on the pitch during the week.  #COYBIB

Horrible goalkeeping error and a stupid peno to give away. Red card may look to have changed the game but City were sitting deeper and deeper for no reason as UCD were providing no threat to that point. I rate UCD well enough but I actually thought they were poor and City effectively beat themselves last night in a shocking mental collapse. One of the worst officiating performances I've ever seen didn't help but can't distract from City throwing three points away.

Huge performance bringing the ball to Bohs in the first half.  Bohs got some joy later in the half and got in behind our left-back who pushed him over.
Bohs came out stronger at the break with another couple of goals from power passing.  The fouls on Neil Farrugia unifies the Premier Division.

SSE Airtricity League, Bank Holiday Monday 22nd April UCD AFC v Dundalk (Champions), The UCD Bowl ko 15:00 (3pm)
Hopefully Robbie Benson will make the trip.  Cup games over the past three years have been very competitive going to sudden death penos at times.  The first game in Fenruary UCD took the lead, but a soft peno decicision and shot from Michael Duffy after HT was enough for The Lilywhites.


It's expected to be another great game.
