VIDEO: Sneak preview of David Bentley making the transfer to the GAA with Crossmaglen

The Toughest challenge for him yet?

Conan Doherty

Welcome to south Armagh, David.

A dark, muddy pitch and 30 other men breaking their necks to get the ball before you. This is a different world.

David Bentley’s arrival at Crossmaglen has been no secret, we’ve even seen him take scores for one of Ireland’s greatest club sides but, now, we’ve been given an insight into the work that went on behind the scenes as the former Premier League footballer made the transfer to the GAA.

AIB have released footage of the Englishman meeting the Rangers lads, training with them, getting tossed to the turf and taking instructions from Oisin McConville ahead of TV3’s The Toughest Trade airing on Thursday week.

With Aaron Kernan making the trade in the other direction to train with Sunderland, this looks like it will be one hell of a watch.
