    Hi Gary,
    It seems strange that I don’t know you as we are from the little corner of the world where football is a religion.

    Been involved with football for over 50 years

    Played at Linfield,Portadown,& Crusaders. Managed and coached at Queens, Banbridge, Portadown, Cliftonville & Larne. Came to the USA to coach and manage in the NASL and the ASL.

    Hosted a four hour soccer talk radio show in San Diego with my buddy Brian Quinn.

    Love to talk to you. Drop me a line or you call me at 714 998 8507

    Take care Brian Halliday
