Poor start, but Currin remain positive
THE PROSPECT of facing both Latton and Scotstown in the space of 48 hours is one which would put the fear in many sides, but not in Currin, according to their manager.
Last year’s intermediate champions may currently find themselves at the bottom of the division one ladder, but that in itself does not tell the whole story.
They have already secured a win and a draw from their five games played to date, and their three league points put them on a par with both Scotstown and Clontibret above them, and just two points off third place in the table, giving manager Declan McKiernan plenty of grounds for optimism.
“We’re fairly happy with how things have panned out. We haven’t been cast adrift at the bottom, and if teams were three, four or five points clear of you then you’d be much more worried. Perhaps the table doesn’t accurately reflect how things have gone,” McKiernan said.
“With the rub of the green, things could have gone differently for us in at least some of our games. We played well against the Harps, played well against Carrickmacross, but we just don’t seem to be able to convert possession into scores at the minute.
“There are six or seven teams within striking distance, and the longer we can stay in that position as the league continues, the better it will be for us because it’ll mean we still have plenty to play for.”
