Granemore target league title
NEW Granemore boss Paul McShane admitted that there is no point in playing in the league unless they want to win it.
This weekend his side meet St Patrick’s in their third game of the campaign, following an first round game against Ballymacnab and then Armagh Harps on Wednesday past.
McShane’s side drew their opener with Ballymacnab, but the 2009 All-Ireland minor championship-winning manager was not overly concerned by dropping points.
“It was a local derby, and they don’t always go to plan. There is always a great passion in those games. I suppose that I was pleased that they showed leadership to earn a draw.”
McShane, who took over from Austin Kelly, explained that his team are gradually getting to where he wants them to be, after what were fairly slow preparations for the league. Yet he did say that it was important to get a good run in the league to prepare his team for the championship.
“It has been a slow start, but training is going okay and we are starting to pick up the pace.”
