KEITH LONG’S TENURE as Bohemians manager got off to the ideal start with a comfortable win for the Gypsies over a disappointing Limerick side at Jackman Park this evening.

Bohs had a dream start and took the lead after only 40 seconds, when a near-post corner was tapped home by Adam Evans. Limerick keeper Conor O’Donnell had saved an initial flicked header from Dean Kelly, but Evans had the simplest of tasks from less than a yard.

With 15 minutes on the clock, the visitors scored their second after Robbie Williams’ attempted clearance struck the on-rushing Adam Evans and broke to Dean Kelly, who had the easiest of tasks to finish to an empty net.

Bohemians got a deserved third goal on 57 minutes, when the impressive Lorcan Fitzgerald got the goal his overall performance deserved with a sweet left-footed 26-yard free-kick to the bottom right-hand corner.

In a completely dominant performance, Bohs could have made it four on 83 minutes, when Patrick Kavanagh struck a lovely 25-yard drive but was unlucky to see it hit the upright.

Shane Duggan had a late effort for Limerick that Dean Delaney pushed around the post, but the hosts were never in contention from the very first minute when Evans gave Bohemians the lead.
