The Day John Egan Came To Training

Last week, Sheffield United's very own John Egan came down to training along with Sky Sports News and Premier League Productions. Johns father was a Gaelic football legend who helped Kerry win 6 All-Ireland titles and 9 Munster Championships. Sky Sports and PLP were doing a piece on John so decided to get his local GAA club involved.

After finishing his interviews, John let us ask him a load of questions with our own player profile before taking on our 6 shot challenge (should've been 6 but only did 5..our fault). After knocking 4 balls over the bar, John presented the club with a Sheffield United shirt which was signed by himself and fellow Irish blades: Callum Robinson, Enda Stevens and David McGoldrick.

The Sky Sports piece can be found here where you can see the team trying not to show off in-front of the camera, and the Irish Post also did a feature on John where you will be able to see the video of the 6 shot challenge he did on our pitch.

Was great having John come down, he was a great sport and would happily get him signed up to the team when he gets bored of playing soccer 😉
