Waterford Pair Set for Town Trial
Wednesday, 9th Aug 2017 10:57
Waterford youngsters Aaron Drinan and John Martin are reportedly set to join the Blues on trial.
According to the Irish Mirror, 19-year-old Drinan and Martin, 18, will get their chance to impress Mick McCarthy this week.
Drinan is a striker who only recently joined Waterford from Cork City’s youth set-up, making his debut as a late sub in a 1-1 draw with Cabinteely on Friday. He has won caps with the Republic of Ireland’s home-based U19s side.
Martin, also a frontman, is an Irish U18 international who has become a regular in the Waterford side this season.
Waterford are currently top of the League of Ireland First Division (second tier) by seven points having received significant financial backing from former Norwich striker Lee Power, who took over as owner late last year.
Mick McCarthy previously recruited former Blues striker Daryl Murphy from Waterford when Sunderland boss back in 2005, beating Town to the future Ireland international’s signature.
Former Blues Stephen and Noel Hunt also hail from the city in south-east Ireland.

That "drive” Mick referred to on Saturday night, was clearly the one from north of the wall not outside his house if today’s news regarding the impending signing of Martyn Waghorn from Rangers is to be believed.
You're the Bunn for ME, Harry by Mullet
After freelance journalist Alan Nixon threw the social media space of ITFC fans into turmoil, the expectation of a striker from a Premier League club predictably sent cynics and dreamers into action.
'Gay Footballers? No, the Fans Wouldn't Have It' by Tristan90
There has been a lot of coverage of late of the anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in England in 1967 and much of it celebrates how far we have come in this country in terms of equality and acceptance.

Let's make the assumption that Marcus Evans wants this business to flourish and ignore the theories about having a dying subsidiary over a long period of time somehow bringing a tax advantage to the ME Group.
