THIS week, the guys on the official Coleraine FC podcast do something they’ve never done before – talk about a Coleraine defeat!
Yes, Damian Mullan, together with regular guests Johnny McNabb and Aaron O’Neill, takes a look back on a rare reverse for the Bannsiders at Cliftonville as part of the weekly football chat.
It was a first defeat in 18 games for Oran Kearney’s men, but one they put right just three days later when they produced a brilliant performance to get the better of Larne.
Needless to say, the guys have plenty of good things to say about that win – and, in particular, the performance of stand-in right back Ronan Wilson.
Joining in on the praise is this week’s special guest – the former Coleraine midfielder Brad Lyons.
Currently on loan with League Two side Morecambe from parent club, Blackburn Rovers, the Ballymoney man admits he is impressed with Coleraine’s progress this season.
He likens what the current team is doing to the one he left back in 2018 and pays tribute to Bannsiders’ boss Oran Kearney who he credits with realising his dream of becoming a professional footballer.
And he tells the podcast team just what it was like making his debut for the Shrimps away at Chelsea and how he harbours dreams of helping the Lancashire club gain promotion.
There is also discussion of the merits of Irish League football as preparation for a move across the water while Brad gives us his thoughts on what players could follow him to England.
All this plus a look ahead to this weekend’s games – including Coleraine’s home game with Glenavon and the clash of in-form Ballymena Utd and Crusaders on Friday night.
It’s a must-listen for any Coleraine fan or for anyone with an interest in Irish League football in this most strangest of seasons.
