Thanks for the memories

Today Leighton Glynn called time on his inter-county football career, which spanned the best part of 12 years.

During those years, he had plenty of good days for the garden. Perhaps one of his better performances came in the Tommy Murphy Cup Final in 2007.

The Rathnew man put in a massive display that day and a return of 1-4 played a big part in that win, which gave Micko his first silverware as Wicklow manager.

That year, Glynn was also awarded the GPA Tommy Murphy Cup player of the year for his performance.

2008 was also a good year for Wicklow and Leighton. After defeating Kildare, they narrowly lost of to Laois in the Leinster Quarter-Final.

Although they were defeated by Antrim in the Tommy Murphy Cup Final, Glynn was selected to play for Ireland in the International rules and he was named as Senior footballer of the year.

The magical summer of 2009 was also a big one for Wicklow and Leighton. Six championship games in a row was a first for the county.

2012 was also a good year for Wicklow and Leighton captioned them to win the Division 4 League title.

It was without question a great inter-county career and he will probably go down as one of the most naturally talented footballers our county has produced.

We look forward to seeing him with Casey’s army.
