Longford Hurler Offered Nine Packs Of Tayto And A Club Orange In Record GAA Transfer Bid


AS the GAA transfer window begins to heat up, one Longford hurler has smashed all records with an unheard-of crisps and fizzy orange offer to move clubs.

Sean Nolan, cornerback for Cahirnaban, is today mulling over a transfer to the team fielded by rival parish Harkstown, which would net him nine packs of Tayto (in a flavour of his choosing) and a 330ml can of Club Orange.

Nolan, 12, is one of the more sought-after players to emerge in under-15 club-level hurling in recent years, possessing a level of skill previously unseen in Longford hurling.

With a total of four championship medals to his name, the young hurling prodigy is working out the details of the transfer with his manager, with many expecting him to sign up with Harkstown in the coming days.

“The GAA transfer window is tight, so clubs go out of their way to secure the best players,” said Pascal Shanihan, spokesperson for the Cahirnaban GAA club.

“We’re looking at keeping young Nolan here as long as he’s happy, but there’s no way we can match the offers coming in from other teams. If he decides to stay, we can offer him three packets of crisps, Lidl brand only, with a glass of Mi Wadi if he scores in a championship game”.

Nolan is expected to make his decision before the weekend, after which he will undergo a test to make sure his Mam can wash the team jerseys every third week.
