The club shared a photo to their social media pages on Thursday morning of a few stars who had stoppd by the club's training ground as part of their visit to Ireland - joking that they would be called upon for Ramblers' LOI outing against Finn Harps on Friday evening.
A few new faces for the trip to Finn Harps tomorrow 😅

As part of the promotion of The Overlap's live tour, Roy Keane took the opportunity of being back on home soil to show Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville around the club where he first broke through as a footballer, and around his home county.
Sportsfile were on hand to snap some photos of the occasion, and caught some briliant snaps of Keane returning to his first ever club at Rockmount AFC.
The tour was not only part of the promotional drive for the upcoming live Overlap show, but involved some filming for an upcoming Overlap TV special to air this summer.
Keane also tested his skills on the training ground where he broke through at the highest level.
And it looks as though the upcoming TV special will see us take a look through Keane's history as a young footballer in Cork, with some brilliant shots showing the former Ireland captain sifting through old photobooks with Neville and Carragher.
We can't wait to see the finished product of Roy Keane's trip home with messrs Neville and Carragher this summer. For those lucky enough to have snapped up tickets for their show in Dublin tonight, they will take to the 3Arena stage to a sold out crowd.
