Football: Fauldhouse a home at last for rover John; JUNIORS EAST.

JOHN CONNELLY is hoping to deliver the goods at Fauldhouse and finally end a career of travelling the roads.

Despite being only 26 the courier driver has earned a wealth of experience by playing under a long list of managers. But he insists it's now time to buckle down and prove he has what it takes.

Connelly said: "When I left school I went down to Ipswich for a few years before returning north of the border to Motherwell.

"I played a good few games in the first team after Andy Goram left and I felt I did okay. But rather than make the position my own I found myself back out the team and never returned.

"Soon after I was on my way to Dumbarton for a few years before joining the juniors with Thorniewood.

"I've now been with six different clubs and three of them have been this season.

"In goalkeeping terms I'm still young and I'd love to prove a point at a higher level. But I know the only way to do that is to turn it on at Fauldhouse."
