I played against Major Ward when he was in his prime. A fine footballer, he played junior for Dublin. He took all of the place kicks for Avila Gaels. All of them, goal kicks, sidelines, fifties, 21 yard frees and penalties. Major drove the bus as well. Victor Bewley of the famous Quaker coffee family managed the team. Avila Gaels were very far from the worst team you could play against in Dublin at the time. [quote=“tazdedub, post: 632900”]
The Major was a great player, would love to have seen what he was like when he was younger.
