Pat Ward has a wealth of experience in Donegal soccer over the years as both a player and coach and played for a number of different clubs. This was after he had moved to Donegal having lived in Scotland for the early part of his life, where he developed his love of soccer, having lined out for the Clyde U16's. Across Donegal, Pat enjoyed a fair bit of success with local sides and I reflect with him on these memories. His steady performances in goal for the likes of Arranmore United earned him a county call up. He also played for Finn Harps at youth level. Once his playing days were over Pat turned into a very capable coach, and particularly excelled in progressing local schoolboy footballers to greater heights. I talk with Pat about all this plus much more including how at an early age it was obvious he was a gifted carpenter.
