Westmeath goalkeeper Gary Connaughton could be headed stateside

Westmeath goalkeeper Gary Connaughton could be forced to return to America for the summer if he can’t find work at home.

A mature student at Athlone IT, Connaughton confirmed he is still looking for work.

He told the Irish Mirror, “Last summer I got so frustrated trying to get a job. All I wanted was a job for the summer because I was coming back to college in September.

“It was very frustrating sitting around and not getting any job and there was a great opportunity for me to go over to America and earn a bit of money and I was grateful to the Wolfe Tones GAA club in Boston for helping me out.

“This summer, if the worst comes to the worst and I have nothing on, I will have no choice but to go.

“I don’t want to go. I want to play with Westmeath and with my club. I want to play with Westmeath and I love playing with my club but if you’ve no job then you have no choice but to go.”
