Welcome Home & Bon Voyage: It’s great to see former senior player Kevin Kane, Fostra, back home again. Kevin has spent many years studying and working as a teacher in Scotland and England. Hopefully Kevin will get a teaching post locally as it would be a great boost to have him back in the club again. Unfortunately Kevin picked up a difficult knee injury which will require a lot of time and effort to overcome and also meant that he was unavailable to play for the club this summer. Good luck to Kevin with his recuperation and we hope to see him on the field in 2016. While one player returns, unfortunately another leaves. Kevin Maguire, Legga, who has played for many years on the Junior Panel, has moved to New York, the club would like to wish him every success and happiness there, hopefully he won’t make it a permanent fixture and that he will don the blue and gold again.
