MacCumhaill's on a downward spiral
Since their last game against Glenfin, MacCumhaill’s season has descended into a series of disappointments.
Their year began with an Ulster Intermediate victory, and a win against Glenfin, yet in the interim the MacCumhaill’s have struggled and their record over their last five matches reads; four defeats and one victory.
Manager Pat McNabb is understandably downbeat ahead of their second meeting with Glenfin this Sunday, a side who are in second place in the league.
“I am disappointed with how things turned out after the start we had,” said their manager Pat McNabb.
“On the back of winning the Ulster Intermediate League, I think we had a good panel and a lot of confidence.
“We won four of our first six and that put us up there with Malin and Killybegs.”
They won their first match against Naomh Bríd, then lost to Killybegs before beating Bundoran. Then McNabb’s team welcomed Glenfin to MacCumhaill park in round four of the league, and they earned a 0-13 to 1-8 result.
Yet defeats followed, and now McNabb’s team find themselves mid table in Donegal with the hopes of promotion replaced by relegation fears.
