Biography: 
Right-half and some-time captain of Ireland Amateurs through much of the 1950s, Bobby Brolly played in three Irish Cup finals for Coleraine and Derry, winning just once, in 1954. He moved between the two near-neighbours in an exchange deal that saw Fay Coyle transfer in the other direction.
