Six of the boss

Ciaran Smyth, St Pat’s YM


Smickers, Smythy, Smoot.

Biggest triumph?

Being involved with the club when we went the whole season undefeated in Division 1C.

Worst beating?

Losing 2-0 to St Mary’s in the semi-final of the Junior Cup a couple of years ago. If we hadn’t gone 1-0 down after a howler in the first minute, it would have been a different game.

Best junior player ever?

For versatility, it’s Joe Thompson. He can play anywhere, and the skill he has is unbelievable.

Best one-liner heard at a match?

St Luke’s fans shouting ‘Butterbean’ at me. If you can’t laugh at yourself, what can you laugh at?

Favourite motto?

At the end of the day, it’s night.
