Celebrity Bainisteoir Press Clippings

"Thousands Turn Out To Support Gerald's Mayfield Footballers" Evening Echo, Monday 18th February 2008.

Ronan Bagnall, Evening Echo writes:

  • "Solicitor Gerald Kean is to bring in Premiership Stars to help train his Mayfield Team for the semi-final of a top TV Reality Show."

  • "With chants of Keano, Keano ringing around Mayfield GAA pitch, the Solicitor to the Stars popped a fine havana cigar in his mouth to toast his teams success."

  • "Well wishers for the victorious team included Celtic Manager, Gordon Strachan, who gave a motivational speech to the players earlier in the week."

  • "A tongue-and-cheek Kean said: I am taking all the lads to Dubai for training. We're going to win this competition, I am certain of it."

Denis Hurley, Evening Echo Sport writes: "Mayfield 0-13; Crumlin 0-7"

    "EIGHT unanswered points in the final fifteen minutes gave Gerald Kean's Mayfield the win over a Crumlin side managed by Glenda Gilson, in the first round of the Celebrity Bainisteoir tournament at Mayfield yesterday. In fine conditions, the attendance of 2700, including Kean's partner Lisa Murphy and Sunday Independant gossip columnist Barry Egan, saw what was a good game.
    Roy Scannell got Mayfield of the mark with a free after 9 minutes and followed this up with another on 16 minutes. Two more points in the following 2 minutes, both from Maurice Barry, had Mayfield in the lead, and the home fans, lead by Lisa Murphy, started into a chant of Keano, Keano which had previously reserved only for the areas most famous son, a football manager of a different type to Gerald, its fair to say."
    The Mayfield fightback began with a quarter of an hour left, with Lotty popinting and the same player knocked over a free to level. A move involving Paul Scannell and sub Patrick Duggan resulted in Crumlin keeper Oliver Ryan making a good save from Paul Condon as Mayfield applied the pressure, and it was Condon who put over the lead point after a good run by the impressive Dan Lucey with 10 minutes left.
    A Scannell free and another from Condon made it difficult for Crumlin, and Paul Scannell can up from wing-back for the games final score to make it 0-13 to 0-7, as Glenda looked like She wished She was on Grafton Street launching a new product and Gerald whipped out a Havana Cigar."
