There was only two weeks between the end of 2014-2015 and the start of 2015-2016. It was a horrible two weeks.
This season, like last season, began in Bray.
I was on a day trip to Dublin in late June, so I took advantage of the teatime kick-off and close location.
It was a bottom of the table clash, and it was unsurprisingly tense, as Bray managed to dig out a 1-0 win.
Towards the end of the following week, was my first Linfield match of the season, a UEFA Cup tie against NSI Runavik.
I’d have to wait three weeks for my next Linfield match, the 2nd leg of the 2nd Round tie against Spartak Trnava, which Linfield lost 3-1, and 5-2 on aggregate.
