Longford Town claimed their first ever victory in Europe by beating Welsh side Carmarthen Town 2-0 in their Uefa Cup qualifier at Flancare Park.

Goals from Stephen Paisley (35 mins) and Barry Ferguson (55) ensured a deserved win for the FAI Cup holders.

Longford took the lead when Paisley brilliantly beat Tony Pennock with a right-foot volley.

The home side netted a second when Alan Kirby's corner was powerfully headed in by captain Ferguson at the far post.

Longford had the advantage of being well into their domestic campaign and their out-of-season opponents will just be glad to still be in with a chance when the two sides meet in the return leg on 28 July.


Longford Town: O'Brien, Alan Murphy, Dillon, Martin, Ferguson, Paisley, Kirby, Fitzgerald, Myler, Keegan, Byrne.
Subs: Prunty, Cronin, O'Connor, Cawley, Dessie Baker, Kelly, Gary Murphy.

Carmarthen: Pennock, Richard Carter, Lloyd, Giles, Cochlan, Rhodri Jones, Aherne-Evans, Richard Kennedy, Dodds, Daniel Thomas, Smothers.
Subs: Walters, Hardy, James, Abdullahi, Tucker.

Referee: Pavel Olsiak (Slovakia)
