    Alan Kirby

    Well lads,

    Any truth in the rumour that if ye get promoted that Alan Kirby will be coming back to us .Heard this around Longford over the weekend
    Gary Cronin is he the right man to manage Longford Town?

    Have not heard anything myself but I doubt it as he and conan have been our best players this year, so Id expect him to stay and I expect the club to want him to stay.

    Hope not. I cant see what reason he would have to go to Longford.

    He's married to a Longford girl and I think they live here now or certainly they were building a house here. He'll be back eventually I would think.

    I don't know if it will be next season but apparently he's been known to have a long term plan of coming back at some stage. I would think he'll get better offers than us so it would be factors other than money if he were to come back next season. He still goes to some of our games and he's been at plenty of club functions. A lot of the LTFC people were at his wedding in the summer. It'd be a club he'd have a loyalty towards.

    I think he's 32. Good news if he decides to come back to us, he'll always get a great welcome.

    I doubt it would be next season but he seems a loyal sort of a lad so id say he would like to go back to finish off his career and maybe get into the coaching side of things. Hope he is with us for as long as possible though.

    As posted above he's married to a Longford lady and they're living in Ballinalee (Co. Longford), building a house near her homeplace in Longford, in college in DCU I think. None of which would point to him going back to Waterford . I'm sure he'll stay on at Fingal anyway, until he comes here as player manager.

    I completely agree! Him coming to us is as much likely to happen as him going to ye now, just saying he still has family here, but dont see him leaving Fingal either way if they go up or not.

    Until he forces the wife to leave and come back here.....
