Player profile – Colm Roche
Height 5’ 9”
Colm is a highly versatile player who has become one of the finest corner backs in Mayo club football. A fiercely competitive character, his reading of the game is second to none, making him a very tough opponent for the best of forwards. Colm played all of his underage football as an attacker and indeed can still attack, as the Ballymun Kickhams Sevens team can testify. He regularly marks Michael Conroy in training and Colm claims that this experience has made him a much better player (Michael that is!).
Together with his brothers Alan, Niall and Seamus, Colm has given years of dedicated service to Davitts on the playing field and has the ability to become an excellent administrator when he hangs up the boots (or before then).
