FANAD UNITED manager Arthur Lynch won’t be throwing in the towel on his team’s Ulster Senior League hopes any time soon.
Fanad, the 14-times USL winners, have returned in good shape this season having had a disappointing campaign last year.
Lynch, a multiple title winner at Triagh-A-Loch himself, insists that the title race is far from over.[adrotate group=”88″]
“We’re not going away,” Lynch told Donegal Sport Hub.
“Cockhill are five points clear now. There is a long way to go. It’s not over for us.
“We’ll keep at it. It’s not over for me. We won’t give up. We aren’t saying that we’ll win the League, but you don’t throw the towel in at Christmas.”[adrotate group=”80″]
A first-half penalty by Garbhán Friel and a second half speculative strike by Gerry Gill had Cockhill two ahead before John McGarvey pulled one back in added time for Fanad.
Lynch said: “We have to just look at ourselves, but we’ll have to up it and move it on. Too many teams go to play Cockhill and aren’t worried about beating them. They’re worried about not getting hammered.
“You can’t make those mistakes against top sides. You’re punished. Those wee things win games. We’re bitterly disappointed. We’ll keep working on it and it will come.”
