Club of the week: Ballyhegan Davitt's
“YOU never quit. There’s no stage you sit down and think, ‘That’s it, we’ve done it,’ because there’s always something else to do, somewhere else to push things on.”
Seamus McCann’s might be in his first year as chairman of Ballyhegan Davitt’s, but a lifetime of service to the club means he knows exactly what it takes to keep it moving in the right direction.
They may find themselves in a much lower position on the league ladder than they would like at senior level, but with their ladies and mens sides pushing on at all levels, they know that it’s only a matter of time before their immense efforts are rewarded.
“I think you have to be realistic in your aspirations. At the moment we’re rebuilding our senior team and have a big influx of younger players. We have very talented players, but you can’t expect it all to happen overnight. They need time to grow and to develop, and we’ll give them that time.
“There’s a drive and enthusiasm around every team at present, right from senior down through the underage ranks, which I hope will keep pushing us on for many years to come.”
