I WANT GAMES 500.

THOUGH he turns 37 in a fortnight, Dean Delany is planning on playing on for a season or two yet.

"I'm feeling the pinch so to speak but my aim is to play for as long as I can," said the Shelbourne keeper, a UEFA Under-18 champion under Brian Kerr in 1998.

"I'm enjoying it at the moment. Obviously, I'm looking after myself off the pitch.

"It gets hard when the likes of weddings and christenings come up not to let yourself go."

The former Everton, Port Vale, Macclesfield, Waterford and Bohs keeper added: "I'm looking to get 500 senior appearances overall, including the time I played in England.

"I think I'm on 420 or 430 now. If I could reach that 500 mark it would be a great way to finish."
