Me & my grandad – Dixie Dean

Ocean FM Sport talks to Melanie Prentice about her grandad ‘Dixie Dean’, who famously played for Sligo Rovers in 1939.

The Dean family retains a special affinity with Sligo Rovers and the town of Sligo to this day.

Melanie and her husband David Prentice, played a part helping to set up a new strategic partnership between Sligo Rovers and Everton, which was announced last week.
