Senior Soccer – The Callum Report(s)

On Thursday evening a few weeks ago, Mr. Cavanagh called upon all the men who would be interested in playing football the year for the seniors. There was a big hole to fill as the vast majority of last year’s team is off studying in college, off working in places such as Poundland (Cathal Farren) and others off filling cars with petrol (Dopey Devine). Then some are just lying in bed to dinnertime, getting up, watching daytime TV, telling as many people as he can about his Derry City career, and then back off to bed (former Captain Todd). Part-time footballer Conor Browne is living it up in Galway with his new bird he met at the Carn Cattle Show, treating her to tasty takeaways and long walks along Salthill Bay. James McKinney has gone missing and hasn’t been seen since Glengad lost to Illlies in the Cup last May. Evan Tweed however has taken his career to the next level; he now has learned to make coffee, where before he could only make tea...He now works in Café Bamba. And then you have Ciaran Jimmy Roe who hasn’t been seen since Doc's got a new Deli counter.
