All at Castleisland AFC and his friends and neighbours wish Stan Divane a speedy recovery this morning after a serious leg injury halted the ‘A’ team’s Premier A League game away to Killarney Celtic on Sunday morning.
The match was abandoned after 48 minutes when the seriousness of Stan’s injury was fully realised.
That, allied to a broken cheekbone for Celtic’s Pa McGrath ensured that the game was brought to an abrupt halt.
Castleisland AFC spokesman, Neil O’Sullivan said this morning that it was clear from early on that Stan’s injury was serious and he thanked everyone at Killarney Celtic for their concern and valuable assistance in dealing with the situation. The game will be replayed at a later date.
Stan Divane has been one of the main driving forces behind the Castleisland AFC success rate over the last few years.
His never-say-die attitude and wholehearted approach to the game would put him on the endangered list.
Wishing Stan and Pa McGrath Well
This unfortunate accident will rule him out of action for the season but is unlikely to end his playing career.
We all wish him well in his recovery and best wishes too to Celtic’s Pat McGrath in dealing with his injury.
The B team defeated Celtic 2-1 with goals by Danny Feehan and Ben Cooney and thanks to a brilliantly saved penalty by ‘keeper Martin Hewitt.
