Killygarry out to stop losing streak
KILLYGARRY have lost their first three games but manager Benny Reddy says that the defeats are not a true reflection of his team.
Reddy, who is a former minor and u-21 Meath county player, believes that his team are one of the most talented bunch of players in the county.
However, they lack one key attribute that would bring them success.
“They are a good bunch of lads, but the one thing that I would say is that they are not aggressive enough. I think that for a team to be successful they have to have a bit more steel. You need to be a bit of a bowsy, as it is called where I am from.”
For Reddy, there is a distinct lack of physicality in his team’s game, though he said that it is not something that should be coached, many other teams in Cavan do it, but Killygarry do not.
“There are teams that know how to stop players from playing. They will make it a pulling and dragging game. But if you haven’t done that from an early age, then you won’t do it when you are a senior football.”
