Mark howls back to his roots thumbnail

A FORMER Premier League footballer has returned to his Limavady roots and is aiming to give something back to the club where he kicked-off his career.
Limavady man Mark Clyde exchanged tackles with Steven Gerrard and Wayne Rooney when he donned the gold of Wolverhampton Wanderers in England's top division.
Mark recently returned to his hometown to pass on his knowledge and experience to local kids who he hopes to inspire to hit the heights he did, after he was forced to retire from football due to injury in 2007, at the age of only 24.
Recently joining Limavady United Youths as Under 13 coach, Mark is keen to give back to the club he has always loved.
He said: "Any help I can give to the club and the town I am keen to do so, I will do my best to give something back to the club and help progress the youth teams."
Football mad Mark was spotted by Wolverhampton Wanderers (Wolves) as a 14 year-old playing in the Foyle Cup and the Milk Cup as a result of some superb performances for Limavady United Youths.
