Strand Rovers FC, based in Maghery, Co.Donegal were formed in 2012. After Strand Rovers met the criteria to enter the Donegal League for 2013/14 season, they would make great strides in the years to follow, including promotion to division 1.  Despite the disappointment of losing the Voodoo Venue Cup final in 2016/17 to Arranmore United, Strand Rovers under Packie McHugh bounced back strongly in 2017/18, and won division 1 of the Glencar Inn Saturday league with Stephen Glackin as captain. Stephen had joined the club a year after it was formed. Their 1st trophy was a proud moment for both himself and everyone connected to the club. In 2018/19 Strand Rovers under Jim O'Donnell repeated the success of winning the Saturday league, this time by a 5 point margin, having previously won it a single point. During this interview I chat with Stephen about the great progression made by Strand Rovers since their story began plus much more including his hopes for the club in the future.
