This thread will trace the Irish in Britain through to the start of the season in August. However, please continue to post any transfer news/rumours in the Summer Transfers thread. This weekend, Finnan and Potter played for Liverpool in their 4-3 win over Wrexham. They both combined down the right to supply the cross for Morientes' opening goal. Potter came off at half time, and Finnan played 60 minutes. Robbie Keane and Mark Yeates played fhe first half for Spurs in their 3-0 win at Stevenage Borough. Bad news for Robbie is that Spurs' three other strikers got the goals (Kanoute, Defoe and Mido). Kelly and Reid played the second half. Sunderland are off to Vancouver tomorrow, and Elliott and new signing Daryl Murphy will be on the plane. Gary Breen has a slight injury and will remain in England. Reading open their pre-season campaign Wednesday night at Staines Town (?), and new signings Graham Stack, Stephen Hunt and Kevin Doyle are all expected to feature.
