November 1973.

"In Bergen, I will never forget the players in the dressing room at half time, flooding the floor with rainwater, as they squeezed their shirts and shorts out. No moans, just the will to get the job done."

Those were the words of George Eastham, the Glentoran manager, speaking to the Glentoran Gazette after the first leg of the second round, European Cup Winners' Cup tie against Brann Bergen in the rain-lashed Norwegian city.

The game should never have been played. The ground flooded and was battered by incessant rain and winds.

Des, originally from Dublin, is goalkeeper coach for the USA Under 20s squad and has worked at club level in Saudi Arabia and Iran. His club carer most notably included a highly successful nine-year spell at New York Red Bulls where he worked with a number of top-quality goalkeepers, the best known of whom were Tim Howard (Everton & USA) and Ronal Waterreus (Rangers & Holland).
