Kevin Doyle happy with the distraction

Wolves and Ireland striker glad to nip back to Dublin today, he says.

IRELAND AND WOLVES striker Kevin Doyle had a welcome distraction from fighting to stay in the Premier League when he turned up as guest of honour at an announcement aimed at generating money for the grassroots of the game in Ireland.

And the Wexford man reckons his own club Wolves who have an FA Cup fixture against Stoke on Sunday are just one game away from Premier League safety.

He was speaking as 3, primary sponsors of the Irish National soccer squad, announced a special fund to aid the grassroots development of Irish football today.

The programme offers FAI affiliated clubs the chance of earning cash when their members switch to 3, the more people that switch, the more money the club earns.

Doyle said: “This is a terrific initiative and one which I’m delighted to lend my support to, I’m confident that the fund put in place by 3 today will be of huge benefit to clubs up and down the country no matter how big or small they are.”
