DARREN ON HOME GROUND
THE boys and girls of Ardmore Rovers as well as members of Lakers got to meet a sporting hero recently, when Darren Randolph was in town.
The Ardmore Legend and Ireland and West Ham goalie Randolph dropped by to visit his own former club on his way to meet the Irish squad in Castleknock.
He was only supposed to be there for 20 minutes, but Darren stayed for an hour, signing autographs and posing for pictures with the young footballers.
He was happy to ensure that every child got a chance to meet him and get their picture.
It was the stuff of dreams for the young fans, who admire Bray man Darren for his achievements.
Meanwhile, he also took the time on the same day to drop by Lakers to give his support to their fundraising walking challenge to Croatia and the Dalmation Islands.
The challenge is currently underway and will finish on Sunday.
30 walkers are taking on the walk to raise money for the club which provides sports and recreation for children and adults with an intellectual disability.
Everyone involved raised €2,900, covering the cost of the trip and supporting Lakers.
