Lavey retire number 15 jersey in memory of Collie McGurk

By Michael McMullan

LAVEY have retired their number 15 jersey for the 2022 season in memory of the late Collie McGurk.

McGurk wore the jersey in the club’s All-Ireland winning season of 1991.

The Erin’s Own club began this season’s title challenge with a 0-11 to 0-8 win over Bellaghy on Sunday night in Owenbeg, with the number 15 jersey hanging in the dressing room.

Collie’s nephew James – who kicked two points in their win – was listed as number 17, but took his place in the starting team.

Lavey are in a group with Dungiven and Kilrea as they bid to get their hands on the John McLaughlin Cup for the first time since 1993.
