MAXI CURRAN has been involved on many big games in his role as a selector to Rory Gallagher with the Donegal footballers – but he was beaming with club pride yesterday.
“It’s fantastic,” he told Donegal Sport Hub.
“I’m 31 years playing for Downings. My first memory is of when I was six years of age and it’s always nice to go back and win with the club.
“These are boys there I started primary school with. You’re playing along with your mates and people you grew up with.”[adrotate group=”81″]
Junior B is far removed from the big days at Croke Park Curran has become accustomed to in his inter-county role, but he said: “The biggest challenge any weekend is getting 15 players.
“It’s a big challenge during the summer. Football isn’t high up the priority at this level for a lot of men, but we have a hoard of men who train hard.”[adrotate group=”38″]
It was a big day for Downings yesterday as they added the Junior A title later in the afternoon to go alongside the Donegal and All-Ireland Gaeltacht trophies they’ve already won.
Curran said: “The club is on a nice roll this year. It’s been one of the best years that the club has ever had.”
