FIVE MINUTES WITH… Christopher McGlynn

Christopher McGlynn

Name: Christopher McGlynn



Occupation: Panel beater

Team: Fintown Harps

If you were throwing a party and you could invite anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would you ask around?

Would have to invite Conor McGregor. He’s notorious for a good sesh and Martin Garrix for the beats!

Where do you like to go out to celebrate after a big victory?
Back to the Railway Inn where the pints are cheap and the nights are long!

What’s the worst pitch you’ve ever played on? There’s been a few but Drumbar’s stands out for me.

Which character in any film are you most like?
Bradley Cooper in American sniper, I’m just a sharp shooter!

Any odd items in your kit bag?
Pretty sure there’s at least 743 rolls of used tape if that’s odd?!

Who’s the biggest joker in the team you play for?
Barry McMonagle tries his hardest to be anyway.

Which teammates has the best looking other half? Awh that would have to be myself.

Who is the worst/best trainer?
Worst would have to be Shan McMillan and best probably John Molloy.

Who spends most time in front of the mirror in the dressing room?
Aaron Boyle without a doubt.

Who’s the best/worst person to sit beside on the team bus?
Best: Hugh McGlynn always has the red bull. Worst: Francis McDevitt – the man cannot hold his wind!

Who has the best and who has the worst diet on the team, and what does it include?
I’d be shoo in for worst anyway. No one stands out as best to be fair.

Toughest opponent you have faced? Shan McMillan in his Strand days was a force to be reckoned with.

Best or worst quote you’ve heard, either from a manager, player, opponent?
“If we score more than we concede we’ll not be far away”… couldn’t say who said that one though.

Best manager you’ve ever played under? There’s been a few but to date it would be a toss up between Barry McMonagle and Paddy Molloy.

Best ever performance? First hat-trick for Fintown in Pairc Acla still gets brought up so it must have been decent.

One to forget?
Too many of them!

Sporting ambition?
Win the Champions League with Fintown. We’ll settle for the regular league this year though!

When you were playing in the back garden, who did you pretend to be?
Ronaldinho was the man!

If you were in charge of transfers, who’d be in and who’d be out of the team? Wouldn’t be fit to get rid of anyone – far too attached … but wouldn’t mind having De Gea and Ronaldo on the team sheet.

Shan McMillan gives us an insight into the Fintown Harps dressing room.
