COLERAINE striker Jamie McGonigle was this week tasked to choose his five-a-side team plus two substitutes from the current first-team squad at The Showgrounds..
The rules are simple – Jamie must choose a goalkeeper and four outfield players (not including himself – supposedly!) plus two impact substitutions.
The former Northern Ireland under-21 international picked the following squad.
Chris’ inclusion picks itself really. He is a top goalkeeper and he has saved us many times throughout his spell with the club.
Stevie is a rock at the back so he gets included. He is known for his strong tackling but he can go a mazy run forward at times too.
Adam is relaxed with everything so we need that bit of composure in a 5-a-side. However, I won’t be expecting him to score many goals.
Josh provides a good goal threat as he has a powerful strike and he will run all day. He might get sent-off as he likes a tackle, but I would take that risk.
I know I’m not allowed but I’m inserting myself into this team. I feel like I need to be there to finish the moves off and score goals.
Ben is a great player who is unlucky to miss out. He will be ideal if we need a goal as he shoots about 70 times during a five minute game.
The five-a-side Lionel Messi.
