Waterford hurler Noel Connors was in Croke Park this weekend to give former Liverpool and Republic of Ireland soccer stars John Aldridge, Jason McAteer and Phil Babb a demonstration in the finer skills of hurling.

The trio were in Dublin for Liverpool's 3-1 friendly win over Spanish outfit Athletic Bilbao last evening, which attracted over 51,000 spectators to the Aviva Stadium. They presented Connors with a Liverpool jersey and also took time out to meet and greet fans at the Liverpool store in the Ilac Centre on Friday.
