    Former players thread

    Going to start this to keep track of the various former UCD players who've departed us. Gary Dicker has recovered from injury and is playing for Stockport today, and started in midweek as well (got an assist for County's penalty today, if that's in any way significant).

    Ted O'Connor scored for Kilkenny against Shels last week; he's their top scorer with 6, and seeing as he's been with them for years now (I think he joined after leaving us), he must be near enough to being their record all-time scorer at this stage.

    Willie Doyle scored both goals for Monaghan as they beat Dundalk 2-0 last night; five for him. Getting back a bit of form, which is good to see.

    Ciarán Martyn is back in the country after a spell in Norway. Glen is gone to St Pat's, while Ciarán Quinn is now teaming up with Mark Rooney to form a fearsome front pairing for Shels.

    Robbie Griffin and Stafford Quaid play on my GAA team (the Boss may be interested to know Dan Gordon is also a former member of the same team!)

    Who's Chris Kelly, by the way? Never started for us, as far as I can see.

    Yes, I am not sure about him but I have it that he played no games either, so could be an error by me.

    Dicker's been given the number 8 jersey at Stockport. Glowing report on the official website about his contribution on Saturday.

    Some quotes from Jim Gannon here.
    We're not arrogant, we're just better.

    Wide ranging reaction on the Stockport forum about Dicker - frmo very effective, to disappointing, but the negative posts did at least point out that he's been injured and he looks to have a lot of potential.

    Not quite the finished article, you might say.

    Just having a look over the Stockport forum there, Dicker played in their 1-0 Carling cup win over Tranmere. He's as confusing as ever with opinions ranging from not good enough to too good for the division and other players not on his wavelength!

    That should have been Dan Connor, of course. Brain not working right....

    Got three games under Mahon, I think.

    Stockport Mad does player ratings for every game. I'm going to assume that something as well established as the Club Name Mad website has to be vaguely independent and reliable. Gary got a 6 on Saturday and a 7 yesterday.
