To help players and spectators get ready for the season we thought we’d sit down with all the team captains and ask them about their plans for the season. Today, we sat down with Brendan Bennett, the newest captain of the league, to talk about his history with the sport and his plans for the season.

Brendan will be the captain for the Celtic Crossing  team this coming season.

How long have you played Gaelic football? Where did you play? And what was your favorite position?

“I started playing Gaelic football at the age of 15 after a few school friends persuaded me to join with them. I play for St. Teresa’s Gaelic Athletic Club in Belfast, County Antrim, and my favorite position is anywhere on the half forward line.”

How do you plan to win the inaugural Memphis Gaelic football league?

“I plan on playing it simple with the Celtic Crossing team, making the other teams do all the work chasing us around and then we will wear them down and take our points and steamroll them.”

Why should anyone want to signup for your team?

“People are here to win and enjoy themselves and with team Celtic Crossing’s tactics and attitude I feel we have best chance of taking the title this year. And with some potential spring signings coming up team Celtic is definitely the team to be on!”

It looks like Brendan will be looking to be a force to be reckoned with. Next we’ll be talking to Liam Coyle to see his strategy for The Brass Door team. Be sure to get signed up for the 2017 Spring Gaelic Football Pub League!
