72-Year-Old Goalkeeper Helps Laois Club To Junior 'C' Victory

The club chairman stepped in to make up the numbers for Rathdowney.

There was a record breaking performance in the first round of the Laois Junior C football championship last night. 

72 year old Rathdowney-Errill club chairman Tim Barry rolled back the years to fill in as goalkeeper for his side, who were a man short for the thirteen aside game. 

Barry went on to concede just two goals in his 60 minute cameo, as his team ran out 8-8 to 2-2 winners against Annanough. 

He was happy with his performance but isn't confident of retaining his spot in the next round:
