Clarke and Byrne Hit the Crossbar at the Markets Field

League of Ireland legends Conan Byrne and Brendan Clarke embarked on a trip to visit every Airtricity League ground this weekend with the remit of hitting the crossbar at very stadium before they were able to move on to their next destination. Both men are doing it for a great cause and aiming to raise money for the Make a Wish Foundation and have gained great public interest all weekend.

Having already been to several stadiums before arriving on Garryowen Road, the weather which greeted both men could have been better but after 17 attempts and while being accompanied by Treaty United captain Jack Lynch and Markets Field Stadium manager George Lee, the target had been met.

Speaking to George during his stop and return to the Markets Field, Clarke was happy to return without being an opposition player. “It’s great to be back and not as an opposition player and having to worry about Willie Armshaw sticking the ball into the top corner. The 18 months I spent here was fantastic. The way it ended up wasnt ideal but I had a great time here.”

“We are doing a crossbar challenge in every League of Ireland ground for the Make a Wish Foundation. It’s an absolutely incredible foundation. They grant wishes for children with various illnesses. Due to the pandemic, they haven’t been able to do as much as they normally can, so we thought with both of our schedules, we could help out. It’s also a bit of fun for an incredible charity.”

Both Clarke and Byrne will finish off their journey today at Ferrycarrig Park in Wexford. A great initiative by both players.
