On behalf of all the 17's NECSL Squad and myself, I'd like to thank Gary McCarthy for all the help he gave with this squad of lads. Gary, along with Peter Maxwell, was part of the group who travelled to Carhaix last year, to play our French counter-parts DC de Carhaix. Gary was a great example of somebody putting an effort back into the club to help encourage the next generation to come through the ranks, like he did himself and to possibly play Senior football with Carrick Rovers. The management and squad made a small presentation to Gary at a recent challenge match in Cootehill, of a plaque to mark the teams success in this years Coupe de Jumelage tournanment. The best of luck to Gary in his new adventure in Australia.
