Corrigan credits St Mick's success to hard work
St Michael’s, Enniskillen v St Patrick’s College Maghera
Monday March 19, Morgan Athletic Grounds, 1.15pm
DOM Corrigan believes that his Enniskillen team’s success this season is due to a lot of hard work from a group of players that is devoid of any big-name marquee players.
Next Monday’s MacRory Cup final will be the seventh which the former Fermanagh manager has presided over, and he said that his only hope is that his team do themselves justice on the biggest day in schools football.
“I think that every team that I have managed which has reached the final has their own certain qualities. I have never compared the teams, I don’t think that is fair. But I think that this current team’s quality is that they work very hard. I am hoping that those qualities shine through on the day,” Corrigan said.
In preparation for this final, Enniskillen have played the Markey Cup champions Holy Trinity, Cookstown and the Cavan minors, who are the defending Ulster Champions.
“That was good because there was a big break and we needed to get games. The boys are looking forward to it,” Corrigan said.
“Any boys who come through this school, who are ambitious, want to play in a MacRory Cup final. This team has worked hard and they deserve to be there. A lot of people wouldn’t have rated this team, maybe because they have no big marquee names, the boys are happy enough with that because it may take some pressure off.”
