FIVE MINUTES WITH… Eoghan Rafferty

Name: Eoghan Rafferty

Age: 21

Occupation: Bartender


Team: Cranford

If you were throwing a party and you could invite anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would you ask around?
Thad from Blue Mountain State and Seamy Carr would be a good combo for a mad one.

Where do you like to go out to celebrate after a big victory?
Straight across the road to Logue’s, good starting point anyway.

What’s the worst pitch you’ve ever played on?
Ours would be up there for sure at the minute. Swilly has always been brutal when trying to take corners.

Which character in any film are you most like? Simple Jack from Tropic Thunder

Any odd items in your kit bag?

Who’s the biggest joker in the team you play for?
Definitely Naoise Cullen – loves a good impersonation

Which team mate has the best looking other half?
Rumour has it that it is Duffy but he keeps her well under wraps.

Who is the worst/best trainer?
Best: Chris Carr never misses a night. Worst: Probably myself to be honest attendance hasn’t been great.

Who spends most time in front of the mirror in the dressing room?
Darragh Morrison – the man loves himself.

Who’s the best/worst person to sit beside on the team bus?
Best: Naoise Cullen is always taking a hand. Worst: Stay well clear of Seamy Carr if you lose a game.

Who has the best and who has the worst diet on the team, and what does it include?
Worst has to be Paddy McGeever – strict diet of fags and Red Bull. Best is probably Lorcan Connor – man can run for days.

Toughest opponent you have faced?
Adrian Delap

Best or worst quote you’ve heard, either from a manager, player, opponent:
Kevin Logue screaming great ball even if it’s gone 20 yards onto the main road.

Best manager you’ve ever played under?
Probably Dixie or Arthur Lynch both men knew what they were at.

Best ever performance? Can’t remember. Every day is a school day!

One to forget? Has to be getting beat 6-1 by Buncrana in the Cup. We were horrible.

Sporting ambition?
Win the Premier Division

When you were playing in the back garden, who did you pretend to be?
Roy Keane throwing in two footed tackles.

If you were in charge of transfers, who’d be in and who’d be out of the team?
I’d get Glen Gallagher promoted into the Sunday team for sure, Darren Lynch back to Fanad for an undisclosed fee.
