Joe Coll makes brave decision to leave Man Utd


By Aidan O’Donnell
JOE Coll’s career at Manchester United might have come to an end this week but the young man from Meenlaragh is hopeful of joining another cross-channel club before the summer is out.

The 18-year-old former student of PCC Falcarragh, who signed a three-year scholarship with the Red Devils two years ago, decided to part company with the club after being told there would be limited opportunities for him to play for the Reserves during the forthcoming campaign.

Had he remained at the Old Trafford club he would’ve been too old to play for the Academy team this year and, with a long line of goalkeepers in the pecking order in front of him for the Reserves, the thought of not playing forced him to make what he describes himself as a ‘gamble’.
