Every Little helps Lisnaksea

Lisnaskea's Shauna McCrystal should be involved in their All-Ireland Intermediate Football Championship final against Stabannon on Sunday

When Lisnaskea ladies boss Adi Little this week tells his team what to expect when contesting an All-Ireland final, he’s speaking from experience.
It’s just nine months since Little was part of the Lisnaskea Emmet’s side which ran out at Croke Park, beating St James to lay claim to the All-Ireland Intermediate Club Championship title. So he quite literally has been there, done that, and got the T-shirt.
“I suppose I’ve just been sharing my own thoughts with the girls. Talking to them about how I felt in the build-up to last year’s game, and what I found helped me. If that’s of some use to them, if it helps them to be in the best frame of mind that they can be for their All-Ireland final this weekend, then so much the better.
“When we played our All-Ireland final against St James, it looked a couple of times like it had got away from us. I think we’d lost it a few times over, but we came back and we won the title. It just goes to show, and I’ve been telling the girls all season long, that no game is over until that final whistle blows.”
