David Platt is now back where it all began at Coleraine FC.

The name Platt has been synonymous with Irish League football for decades.

Goalkeeper Jim, who enjoyed a distinguished career with Middlesbrough, began and ended his playing days at Ballymena United and Coleraine respectively. He was also part of the Northern Ireland set-up for a decade, winning 23 international caps.

His brother John is still held in high esteem at Cliftonville, where he was a member of the team that won the Irish Cup back in 1979.
