McGinnity 'surprised' that Roslea are winning
ROSLEA boss Peter McGinnity has been surprised that his team have managed to earn two wins in the league so far, despite not playing well.
The county champions beat Devenish by three last weekend, Newtownbutler by five, but lost to Lisnaskea by a point.
However, the man who has delivered the last two county championships to the club in as many years said that Roslea have been somewhat fortunate so far.
“We have injuries, and certain players that are missing. I am surprised that we have been able to pick up a couple of wins because of the personnel that hasn’t been available,” said McGinnity.
“We have been lucky. In the Newtown game, they missed a double penalty, and when we played Devenish they were very wasteful. I wouldn’t think that Ederney will make those mistakes.”
Ederney are sitting in second place in the Senior Football League One at the moment, one point behind the Erne Gaels and a point ahead of Roslea. Last weekend, Iggy Gallagher’s team drew with Lisnaskea, and dropped their first points of the campaign. Ederney grabbed a late draw thanks to a point from Enda Ferris. However, they had been as far ahead as eight points at the start of the second half.
“They have become a division one team after bouncing up and down for a few years. What I would be worried about is that they can score, as they have the likes of Enda Ferris,” McGinnity said.
