Hugh Rooney

Tough defender who came from Fernhill. Very quick. I think he signed for Morton. He was very mature and had a full growm beard when he was 15 years old ! Other teams always checked teh team lines and birth dates before a game !

When playing under 16's Hugh never had a fresh orange at half time: he preferred a zip of the Guinness. Fit as a fiddle and strong as an ox in the tackle: I think his secret was the Guinnes that built him up.

I think I am right in saying that Shug played in the same team/defence as Dick McLaughlin at Fernhill. They used to play keepy uppy with with the opposing wingers. Hard but fair players. Whenever Shug was being booked by the referee he always called the ref Mr. - very polite but very tough. Good guy to have in any team.
