AFTER announcing his retirement 10 days ago, former Swindon Town striker Rory Fallon says he is ready to turn his attention away from football to focus on his ice cream business.

The towering New Zealander last match was in a World Cup qualifying play-off against Peru and has represented Dorchester Town domestically earlier this year.

“Ice cream’s been a passion of mine since I was young,” said the former Plymouth and Swansea striker. “I remember when my dad was a football coach, he used to coach on Saturday and I’d play my games on a Saturday. On a Sunday we’d get ice cream as a treat if we won.”
