Episode 8 of In The Spotlight is here and for this episode Ryan has caught up with a man who tells it like it is and is straight to the point. He is a man who is hard as nails, it’s Tommy Callinan.

Callinan, who enjoyed stints in both playing roles and managerial roles for both Gloucester City and Forest Green Rovers in the 90s, discusses success with Rovers and hard times with City during the interview and provides his opinion on the differences between football then and football now.

Tommy Callinan grew a reputation for being a hard-hitting, no-nonsense midfielder during his career

Ryan talks to Callinan about getting back involved in football within the last few years and his roles with both Slimbridge U18s and Longlevens – as well as his family, including answering the question “Who is the better player?” out of his sons Tommy Jr and George.
