EAMON MCCONIGLEY is already talking about Letterkenny Rovers ‘going one better’ than last season.
Rovers became the first club from Donegal in 20 years to reach the Intermediate Cup final, but they lost 5-0 to Crumlin at Aviva Stadium in May.
Cockhill pipped the Cathedral Town men to the USL title and it was the Inishowen side who won the League Cup.
When McConigley mentions ‘going one better’, it’s easy to see that his mind is once again on the big prize: The Intermediate Cup.[adrotate group=”70″]
A two-time winner with Fanad United, it is the one that matters for McConigley.

“With six teams you could toss a coin on who’s going to win the League,” he told Donegal Sport Hub.
“You only have to lose one game and you could be out of it. I do believe that a team that gets the run in the Intermediate Cup won’t win the League.”[adrotate group=”37″]
McConigley has signed Conor Tourish from Derry City and Christopher Flanagan, who has been at Derry, Finn Harps and Sligo Rovers, while Darragh Black from Milford United is also pencilled in as a new arrival.
McConigley said: “You always have to add to your squad if you want to continue on and be successful. New players add spice and competition.
“Last year, we were very successful which meant that you had players who were reluctant to come because they felt that they would struggle to get into the team. I’m happy with the squad I have assembled.[adrotate group=”38″]
“If you want to compete for major titles you need players who want to compete, but in Donegal the number of players who want to play outweigh the players who want to compete.”
