Irish Connection

Northern Ireland’s James Quinn started 7 games for Willem II Tilburg and came on as a substitute 4 times as they finished 11th of 18 in the Netherlands Eredivisie (Premier Division) in 2004-05. Quinn was transfered to Sheffield Wednesday during the season. Willem II went on to reach the Dutch Cup Final, losing 0-4 to PSV Eindhoven, and thus taking PSV’s place in the UEFA Cup as Cup Runners-Up (PSV qualified for the UEFA Champions League).
