A Little Piece of History

Not many fathers can say they are lucky enough to have shared the same pitch as their son in competitive action. This honour befell 36 year old Dave Grumley today when he entered the fray as a 70th minute substitute in our Tully Bookmakers Challenge Cup clash.

His son Mark, who plays for our U18 NDSL side, played the full 90 minutes after he had been drafted into the side due to our current injury crisis.

This is the first time in the history of Johnstown FC that a father and son have shared the same pitch.

Congratulations, Dave and Mark, on your little piece of history today.
