It’s the classic football fan dream.
You’re in the dressing room…you’re surrounded by the players having the banter before the serious stuff starts, you get changed…pulling on that famous jersey….you’re ready to go, final instructions are given. You head out of the dressing room into the players tunnel and then onto the pitch for…TRAINING!
Mr Green fans getting ready for Bohs training in Dalymount Park
Well everything up to the training part is in the dream, right? And getting to train with YOUR team is pretty cool…especially when you get to bring five mates along for the experience.
That’s exactly what happened for Ross Mullen who won the ultimate fan prize and got to train with Bohs last week along with five mates on the hallowed turf of Dalymount Park thanks to Mr Green, who as main sponsors of Bohemian FC, arranged this unique fan prize.
“It was certainly a unique experience” according to Ross. “I saw the competition being promoted on Mr Green’s Facebook page and decided to enter…obviously never thinking that I’d win! So to get the call to say I’d won was great. I was buzzing and then I had to put calls into the lads to say….”fancy going training with Bohs?” That’s not a call you get to make every day.”
Ross Mullen, Conor Mullen, Joe Gilligan, Darren Kane, Eoin Lysaight and Cian O’Dulaing – six names you heard here first. So what did the boss think of the lads? “You could see they were a bit nervous to start with and the boys were certainly not going easy on them in the early stages. But they eased into it and by the time we got to the ball work, they were much more comfortable and showed a few nice touches…except for the one that ended with the ball nearly clearing the terrace…no names though!” said Owen Heary.
Looking the part! The Mr Green fans with The Gaffer!
So, when all was said and done, what did Ross and the lads think of the experience? “It was brilliant. I thought we might just be standing on the sideline watching but we were involved from start to finish. Owen (sorry, The Gaffer) and the players really made us welcome and involved us in everything. It was really enjoyable and exhausting…a brilliant experience from start to finish. We even got our kit and had a photographer on hand to capture the moment. So a big thanks to all at Mr Green Online Casino for that.”
And a word from our sponsors as the saying goes….this time from Mr Green Country Manager for Ireland, Gavin Flood:“As an online casino with our 300 games for players, our brand is about fun and entertainment. So what better way to demonstrate that as sponsors of Bohs than by doing something like this? I’d like to say a big thanks to Owen (The Gaffer), the players and the Club itself for making this happen and of course to Ross and the lads for being really good sports “
