Leitrim GAA, LGFA, Handball, Athletics & Swimming – Sports Roundup: Episode 179
We take a look back at a weather affected sporting weekend after Storm Ciara saw some sporting events cancelled we do have opinion from some players and staff after their NFL defeat to Longford.
Manager Terry Hyland speaks about the disappointment of the defeat to Longford, how the contrasting starts to the second half put a gap between the sides that Leitrim just couldn’t close.
Cillian McGloin offers his opinion on how the game was lost and how he deals with the disappointment of losing big games.
Paddy Maguire discusses the cuteness of Longford to keep the scoreboard ticking over and stretch their lead early in the second half, the change of the pace of the game in Division 3 from the Division 4 experience. He talks about the circumstances of his goal line clearance which kept Leitrim in the game during that Longford spell in the third quarter of the game.
