 Celts, Ballincollig likely to lose out - Printer-friendly version   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
Celtic and Cork junior club Ballincollig — the club where Liam Miller cut his teeth in the game — could both lose out on a significant pay-day as a result of the youngster’s impending free transfer to Manchester United, which may be agreed over the weekend.
Late last year, FAI career guidance officer Eoin Hand helped win a major verdict from the European courts which stated that clubs which have contributed to a player’s development at underage level are entitled to a share of any future transfer fees.
But with Miller set to leave on a free transfer, Ballincollig — who also lost out as a result of Healy’s free transfer — can not hope to gain the not inconsiderable benefits that would have been due to them had he made a big-money move away from Parkhead.
