Two more in the bag
Not a bad weekend. Two points for Leitrim in a do or die match in Carlow and team captain Emlyn Mulligan named on the Team of the Week. Things are looking up again and it’s no more than the players and Brian Breen, George Dugdale, the backroom team and the CountyBoard deserve. It’s all systems go now for the remainder of the Allianz League, because promotional hopes will be in the balance until the very last round. So the scene is set for an exciting few weeks ahead – amazing what a vital win can do.
We welcome Offaly to Páirc Seán on Sunday and the two points will be hard earned, so vocal and moral support will be vital. Leitrim followers have never found wanting, so have an early dinner and be in Carrick inÓgood time to welcome the team on to the pitch and keep that “Leitrim Leitrim” chanÓgoing from the throw-in. There will be stages in the game when Offaly will dominate, so the war cry will be needed even more then and the players will respond, as they always do.
Over the coming weeks we will be keeping a close eye on other results form Division IV and how they might impact on us, but really we just need to keep winning and be in the shake-up at the end.
Every game is now a vital one, so Leitrim followers should rally to the cause on Sunday and keep the pot boiling. Offaly are renowned for their fighting spirit and never say die attitude, so we will have to match them mentally as well. Barney and George are busy men this week, plotting a game plan with the players and looking for another high Scóring performance on Sunday. Hopefully supporters will be there in large numbers and come home happy with another two points in the bag.
