ShelsTV: State of the Nation 2012
The reports of our death were greatly exaggerated. We're back.
2011 was a great year for both Shelbourne and ShelsTV. The Reds won promotion back to the Premier Division, after 5 long seasons traveling to "stadia" in every corner of the island, and added the cherry on top that was announcing our return to the big time with an appearance in the FAI Cup Final in Lansdowne Road.
ShelsTV's videos were viewed over 56,000 times in the last twelve months. This adds up to a total of 107,000 since we started uploading our videos online for all to see. For this, I want to thank you all. Without you wanting to watch our videos and without your feedback messages of support from all over the globe, we wouldn't be here. We've come a long way!
We would like to congratulate Kevin Dawson on winning the inaugural ShelsTV.com Young Player of the Year. Kevin fought off some stiff competition from Andy Boyle (2nd) and Ian Ryan (3rd).
We also congratulate David Cassidy for retaining his Goal of the Season award for the second consecutive season. The top three goals can be seen here.
Looking ahead to 2012, I see no reason why ShelsTV go on to be even more successful. As always, we will strive to bring you all the best of the action of the Reds matches both home and away, in all competitions. This brings with it new challenges, as many more clubs that we will face this year produce their own highlights, in addition to RTÉ having their cameras at all the games for their Monday Night Soccer highlights programme.
Due to conditions on RTÉ's rights to broadcast highlights of the Airtricity League of Ireland matches, ShelsTV are unable to release our highlights package until after 8pm on Monday nights. We will have the highlights uploaded and ready to go well before then, we will probably post links to the pass word protected video too, but they will only become public after 8pm.
Thank you for your continued support. If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitated to contact us. Contact information is listed below.
