KEVIN HARKIN SAYS that Clonmany Shamrocks have to regain their belief and challenge for silverware again this season.
It was a turbulent pre-season around Shamrock Park this season. Sean Tolly stepped down as manager and Harkin, having been manager of the club’s reserve side, stepped into the breach.
Clonmany ran Glengad United to a final day title decider last season and had to watch Shane Byrne’s team lift the trophy in their backyard.
Clonmany are back with a renewed optimism now under Harkin and last night defeated Cockhill Youths 7-0 in the Charlie O’Donnell Cup..[adrotate group=”80″]
“We’ve had a good start, but we’re just taking every game as it comes,” Harkin told Donegal Sport Hub.
“We have to go out with the attitude that we can beat anyone. Any eleven players we put out, we can do that. Maybe last year belief was lacking, but it’s about getting that back into us and fearing nobody.
“There is a lot of experience to come into the team. We didn’t have a great pre-seaosn, but the boys have knuckled down and training has been good. You can see that it’s sharper. They’re enjoying the football again.”[adrotate group=”46″]
