Rossies prepare for big year

O’Donnell: “It wasn’t outstanding, but for the 3rd of January we’re happy enough.”
Roscommon 1-20 Sligo IT 0-10

After their convincing FBD League win over Sligo IT, Roscommon joint team manager Fergal O’Donnell said that he was pleased with how his charges did over the hour.

“We are happy to get up and running for the year and it was nice to give a few lads a first start. We put up a good score but the second half was not that impressive to be honest. The lads played well overall and it was good to see Cathal Shine back and playing at full forward. We don’t have a lot of height in the team and we are conscious of that. We have a few contenders for the full back position but they are all playing with their colleges but generally it was a good work out today.”

“The pitch today here was great considering all the rain we have had and it was a great run out for us and we worked hard. It wasn’t outstanding but for the 3rd of January we are happy enough. We will be looking at more players next weekend against NUIG and we are looking forward to that now” he concluded.
