Erin Rovers

(Oldest Posts First)

I was talking to a boy at the weekend and he said in 04 or 05 Ollie Buckley and Kevin Lynam went over to London to play with a club.
I wasn't aware either of the boys had transferred. Apparantly it was to do with an Offaly man in London who looked after them. Under 21 final from what I hear!
I'll post the London Club name when I am given it, but I was wondering why they didn't play with Erin Rovers that year? I was sure my club came up again them both years and the two lads were togged? Is Buckley still playing ball here?

The club was Round Towers and it was an underage final in 2004 from what I hear. A lad who was involved in the management of the team who is from Offaly got them over by all accounts. Did they actually leave Erin Rovers that year? Buckley was a good player.

I was just given the video of the game! Kevin Lynam kicks 2 points in the second half! |Buckley plays wing back in the game. It was a Clara man who brought them over, Kevin Kelly. I hear he has approached a player or two about moving over to different clubs in other parts of London more recently.
