THE corridor of the dressing rooms at Leckview Park is decorated with photos of some of Letterkenny Rovers’ magical days.
One such image depicts that epic night in 2009 when Shane Bradley netted a late, late goal for Rovers against Fanad United at Triagh-A-Locha to seal the Ulster Senior League title for the Cathedral Town men.
At the back of the photo is a young Dan O’Donnell.
His father, Liam, is heavily immersed in the club having been a long-standing member of the backroom staff.
O’Donnell watched as a supporter in ’09 when Rovers reigned supreme – and now he’s aiming to work his way into Eamon McConigley’s team as a player.
“It’s been great seeing where I’ve come from since I came here from Glencar, watching at 15 or 16 and now getting a chance to break into the first team,” O’Donnell told Donegal Sport Hub.
“Myself and Odhrán McMacken and other lads have got the chance – you will get a chance to prove yourself here at Rovers.”
Rovers haven’t tasted League glory since that fateful Friday night six years ago, but O’Donnell believes they’re well primed for an assault on the title this time around.
He said: “We’ve been there or thereabouts and could have pushed on to win it, but we have a good side and we’ll give it a rattle
“We’re not here to make up numbers.
“You want to be up there challenging at the end of the season to win medals. That’s what you train for and play for.”
