Colm ‘The Gooch’ Cooper all the way from Kerry spent a busy Saturday morning in Ardfinnan recently, coaching just over 100 underage boy and girl footballers.

The whole exciting day came about when Annette Savage entered a recent competition sponsored by Eircom and the prize was a coaching session for underage players with the famed Kerry footballer.

There were tens of thousands of entries from across Ireland in the competition and lucky winner Annette, from Ardfinnan, is pictured here with ‘The Gooch’ presenting her with her own signed jersey, when he came to the South Tipp village for the coaching session.

All the boys and girls thoroughly enjoyed the day and picked up a few pointers from the Kerryman on how to improve their game.
