    RETRO | 2010: Neale Fenn announces his retirement…..and then signs for Shamrock Rovers five days later!


    Nine years ago, Dundalk FC striker Neale Fenn announced that he was retiring from football …..only to sign for Shamrock Rovers less than a week later! Ahead of his return to Oriel Park with Cork City on Friday night, Dundalk Sport takes a look back at a dramatic couple of weeks in 2010.

    I still don't understand why Dundalk released his registration. If he was retiring then surely there was no need. Seems very naive of them.

    As far as I know, he wanted the option to play lower level football after claiming his tax rebate

    Some would argue that he should not have been treated with respect or his word taken at face value. When someone abuses trust or shows no inkling of integrity, those who gave that trust, behaving with decency and understanding can be accused of being naive. That's sad and ends up making some people less trusting and more cynical.

    Fenn was the problem, not those who accepted his word

    And by lower level of football he specified non-league football, Shamrock Rovers didnt count! The PFAI escaped a lot of the ire in this as Fenn sought advice on how to go about getting out of a contract, getting registration back to make a move and avoid a transfer fee. It wasnt that he had decided to call it a day and changed his mind when Rovers came knocking! He had been sussed out on a potential move so there was other club involvement also. We inadvertantly ended up with a better player as a result though!

    Hard on Galway to lose in the last minute.
    Keeps an amazing run going 19 wins in a row and unbeaten in 29 against Galway.
    Statistically mad odds of that happening

    I think stats will show that in Derry city v Finn Harps games that isn't as unusual as you think.

    Cork with a more respectable result tonight minus a few bodies. Nice for the travelling Longford town weirdos that they can join the turncoat from BTS and celebrate a Dundalk win.

    Got exactly what we deserved tonight,gave Pats far too much respect,gifted them the winner,could barely muster aa shot on goal after falling behind.
    Thankfully that will put the catching Cork business to bed because its UCD we should be worrying about......
    Irish by birth ,Harps by the grace of god.

    All working out nicely for DFC to win the league on Monday 23rd now, need to beat Waterford away on Fri 20th then Rovers at home on Monday 23rd for that to happen.

    I could be wrong but not sure the league has been won in September before? It still might not happen mind, I have a felling it won't go as smooth as some think, but Dundalk are on some run, last defeat in the league was in mid April.

    Cork were quite dogged tonight, seemed to have more belief about them, better set up. The keeper looked a much better option than our old friend McNulty.
    #DundalkFC 4 titles in 5 years 2014/2015/2016/2018

    The way Dundalk dispatched Sligo on Monday,the commitment and professionalism from all the players was extraordinary!If they carry both in to tonight's game(and i have no doubt they will) then there will only be one outcome.
    1-0 will be fine with me btw but i expect it to be more. Fenn a sideshow.
    20 silk cut sucked
    Some boyo that Georgie kelly fella
    Corks total BLANKET defence was working so well up until the big man came on!Only took him about a minute to snatch the deserved winner for Dundalk.
    Absolute scenes around OP when he scored and at ft.

    Stuttering Dundalk performance against a poor side tonight. Rogers didn't have a single shot on target to trouble him. The goal eventually came via Georgie Kelly, who is making a habit of getting important goals.

    Beat Waterford in the league and Dundalk can wrap up the title by beating Shamrock Rovers.

    Fair play to Mark O'Sullivan tonight. I thought he was finished but he held the ball up well and was clever in his play.
