Not Dun yet: New Dundela boss Colin Nixon has unfinished business with the Premiership

It wasn't that long ago that if Colin Nixon had been spotted sitting in a dugout in east Belfast, with a beaming smile on his chops and holding a green scarf over his head, you'd have been forgiven for thinking the conquering hero had returned home.

But no. The man who made the guts of 800 appearances for Glentoran, collecting more silverware than a lottery-winning magpie in that time, is indeed back in management and in east Belfast but at Wilgar Park, not The Oval.

Little Dundela (sorry, that has been the law since chickens started to run) have appointed one of the local game's class acts to take over the little club with huge ambitions.
