Where do we start with this fella? A tremendous servant for the club for decades, Disco made his name a top midfielder. After a break (retirement) from first team football, Mark was coaxed back by Pete Warren last year and re-invented himself as a commanding goalkeeper. Had a tremendous season last year during Davitts successful championship run with his experience being used to great effect and he improved as a goalie with every game. Coaxed out of retirement again this season by the persuasive management team and will be a vital cog as Davitts attempt to consolidate their senior status. A black belt in Karaoke, who present could ever forget his duet with John Treacy as they butchered the classic “Spirit In The Sky” in the Borderline many years ago? (leave the Karaoke to the experts boys!!).
