    Where Are They Now? Shamrock Rovers Double Team 1986

    Anybody spot this in The Sunday Times yesterday?

    It's a decent series they do showing a team photo from ye olde days then giving a paragraph to each player in the pic. It's usually British teams from varying sports but Rovers got a look in yesterday - it's good stuff.

    Paul Doolin with a full head of hair, a young Liam O'Brien and Mick Neville too!

    Also known as "half the Derry City treble team of 89".

    The main thing it brought home to me was that it wasn't just my dodgy memory, Jody Byrne's hair actually DID look like that.......
