Ahoghill need greater belief
AHOGHILL’S mediocre first half of the season has been blamed on a lack of self belief.
The St Mary’s club have managed to consolidate their place in Division one for the past two years, ever since they were promoted in 2009, but manager Dermot Graham reckons there is still doubt in his player’s minds.
“I think some of the players have a bit of a complex that they are not good enough to play in this league. But they have already proved that they are,” said Graham, who has been at the helm throughout their time in the top flight of Antrim.
This year, Ahoghill have gained just five points from nine games though they are fourth from the bottom of the division.
Last Wednesday, they suffered a 3-15 to 1-13 drubbing at the hands of St Gall’s, which was to be expected considering the Milltown road side are the county champions.
Graham takes little solace from that though, as he feels that his team have left a lot of points behind so far this year.
“It is a struggle because we are just not getting the points. We are playing well enough in stages, but consistency is our problem.”
