Dedicated: Jamie Mulgrew is closing in on his 650th appearance for Linfield

There are no records to confirm it but, season after season, Jamie Mulgrew is routinely claimed by Linfield supporters to be the Irish League’s most fouled footballer. What we know for sure is that the Blues captain is the most influential player in the domestic game here and has been for some time.

The former Northern Ireland international gives so much to David Healy’s champions. The driving runs forward, the biting tackles in the middle of the park, the defensive awareness and experience to cover in all the right places and the ability to score or set up a goal with an astute pass. In training, Mulgrew also sets the standards for team-mates at Windsor Park.
