Two years to the day that Shaun Patton sat on the bench in Dalymount for Sligo Rovers he picks up his second consecutive Ulster SFC medal. Incidentally, the starting keeper for Sligo that day was who won the Division 1 league title with Mayo GAA this year.

That's the second weekend in a row that a player who started in the opening weekend of the U19s Elite League scored in a provincial final. Former man Antain O'Laoi scored for Galway last weekend. Today Daire O Baoill ex scored for Donegal.

Starting with U17s and now back in LOI with Slevin is a great example of how playing allows players to develop on and off the field. He's had a stellar couple of years and is heading to Naples to represent Ireland. 👏👏👏

Just walked into the room with the TV on. "I've got five nephews- all boys" That's enough Love Island for me tonight.

I absolutely love the attitude of - 'You’re not just here as a footballer, you’re here to become a better person. You’re here to learn off the pitch as well as on it.' Important to see young players preparing for life outside football.

With departing to turn professional in Germany it's worth recognising what an incredible role model she is for players looking to balance studies and soccer. I spoke with her last year about education and found her to be an inspirational interviewee.

Having appeared today for now has the same distinction as his manager of debuting in a 0-0 draw which went to penalties (Stephen Kenny's first home game in charge of Derry in 2004 was a goalless cup replay against Shels in between their Deportivo fixtures)
