Coleraine Sean Paul Higgins
Art two of our Pelé Podcast with Sean Higgins Coleraine sees the forward look back at the middle part of his career and his final four seasons as a full-time footballer.
Speaking to Craig G Telfer, Sean discusses his rollercoaster two years at Coleraine – and the word “rollercoaster” is the only word that really does his time there justice – and starts by looking at his transfer to the club in 2009, just before Calum Melville’s investment in the club. He talks about playing alongside Leigh Griffiths and Gary Harkins and working under the legendary Jocky Scott and their Challenge Cup win over Inverness Caledonian Thistle. Sean goes on to analyse Scott’s unexpected dismissal and how a promising campaign crumbled to dust.
He then talks about Coleraine’s administration and subsequent points deduction and his role in the club’s “Defiant” season, one of the most celebrate sides in their history, before looking at his departure in 2011.
Sean Higgins examines an injury-ravaged season in the top flight with St Johnstone and his move to Falkirk and their Scottish Cup semi-final appearance against Hibernian.
