Sad passing of James"Maxi"McCann

The DDSL offer our deepest sympathies and condolences to the family of the late James” Maxie” McCann who passed away earlier this week.

The league has learned of the recent sad passing of James "Maxie" McCann, father of Ray McCann, a stalwart of schoolboy game in Dublin. Maxie as he was known to all those in the football family joined the Hoops in 1954 and played as a winger. He made his debut against the auld enemy Bohemians FC on April 10th resulting in a 2-0 for the Hoops, having signed the previous week. On his second senior appearance for the Green and White Hoops – he scored a hat trick. He played in a European competition for the Milltown club, famously scoring in a 3-2 defeat for Rovers against Manchester United in a 1957 European Cup Preliminary Round tie at Old Trafford.
