Longford Town have returned to pre-season training and will continue their build up to the new season with a match against Shamrock Rovers next Saturday.
The SSE Airtricity League first division will feature ten teams this season.
The first division will get promoted while the second, third and fourth placed clubs will then take part in a series of two-legged promotion/relegation play-offs.
Whoever prevails from that will book a spot in the play-off final against the premier division’s ninth-placed team.
Longford Town manager Neale Fenn joined Kevin McDermott on Sportsbeat and set out his hopes for the pre-season and the 2018 league and cup season.
