Former winger and current Under-18s coach reflects upon last weekend's charity game at Macron Stadium
Despite ultimately finding himself on the losing side in last weekend’s Legends Match, David Lee couldn’t hide his delight at the final whistle at the success of the day overall.
A man who was at the centre of a tug-of-war between team captains John McGinlay and Tony Kelly, the latter eventually won the fight to secure the winger’s services for the charity game.
And offering up his thoughts following the final whistle at Macron Stadium last Saturday afternoon, the club’s Under-18s coach admitted that the day had been one to remember for all involved.
“It was a long process and I was wanted by both Tony and John, but in the end I went with one of my best mates,” he explained. “I think there was a fair bit of pressure on me to provide the service for the strikers, so hopefully I did that well enough even though the result didn’t go for us on the day.
“We’d all been looking forward to the game since it was announced – it was just great to get all the lads back together which is nice from our point of view, to see our old mates, alongside raise some money for two great and worthy causes.”
Reflecting upon the attendance at the match – almost 11,000 – Lee added: “It was also great to see so many fans inside the stadium – they came out in their thousands and it was fantastic to see.
“To repay them with such an entertaining game was just the icing on the cake, while we also managed to order the weather for the day too!
“Overall, it was just a brilliant day and it was nice to put some smiles on the faces of everybody around the club.”
