Comeback story: Roy Carroll could make his Irish League return with Dungannon tonight

Former Manchester United and Northern Ireland goalkeeper Roy Carroll has revealed he would not have made a return to senior football with Dungannon Swifts at 43 years of age if he didn't think he could still cut it at Irish League level.

In an exclusive interview with the Belfast Telegraph, the Fermanagh man, who won titles with Linfield in 2017 and 2019, declared he was 'buzzing' and feeling like a 'young pup' about the prospect of playing for his new club, who travel to Ballymena United tonight in the Danske Bank Premiership.

Having left Linfield two years ago following a serious knee injury, Carroll played for Mid-Ulster League outfit FC Mindwell in 2020 but appearances were limited due to Covid-19 restrictions, so he is hoping to make up for lost time with Premiership strugglers Dungannon.
