DAR­REN ON HOME GROUND

Bray People - - PICTURES -

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.
