Sporting stars returning to their GAA roots has been a big talking point of late and David Gillick is the latest athlete to join the list.

Gavin Duffy has decided to throw his lot in with the Mayo footballers in recent weeks after his contract with Connacht expired, fifteen years after playing in a minor final for his county and now one of Ireland’s most successful runners has made a winning return to the club scene.

The 2005 and 2007 European Indoor 400m champion lined up in midfield for Ballinteer St. Johns in the Dublin senior football championship last night as they emerged victorious in the first round on a scoreline of 3-13 to 2-10.

The 30 year-old resumed playing with the club this year and has been a welcome addition to the squad. The league campaign had been a struggle with four defeats, but after a nervy opening to the game, Ballinteer came up trumps last night at O’Toole Park and ran out deserving victors.

Gillick formed a formidable centre-field partnership with Dublin’s U-21 hurling captain Glenn Whelan and his brother John lined up at full-back. Indeed in keeping with the family tradition within the GAA, older brother Tony is also involved with the juniors.

The athlete had spoken of his ambition to return to the club fold after playing a starring role before his athletics career took over and will be pleased with his first championship outing since his teenage years.
