STEPHEN MCBREARTY believes Kilcar are beginning to realise their potential under Martin McHugh.
1992 All-Ireland winner McHugh, a former Cavan senior team manager, has taken charge of Kilcar for the first time in 2016 and the Towney men are buzzing these days under ‘The Wee Man’.
They’re top of Division One in the All-County League and yesterday thumped St Michael’s 2-15 to 0-7 to go top of their group in the Championship.
“We don’t have the biggest of numbers here, but we’re getting the best out of our players,” said McBrearty, who scored one of the goals with his brother, Patrick, netting the other.
“We have the skill along with it, but the physicality is the big one.
“Any of those boys would make any team in the country and we’re privileged to have them.
“We knew it wasn’t going to be easy. We know what happened when we played them two years ago and there was a lot of hurt there. They were set up to stop the pace, but we were more clinical and that got us over the line.”
Stephen McBrearty’s goal, finished after great work by Ciaran McGinley, gave Kilcar a 1-5 to 0-4 lead at half-time.
McBrearty said: “We were four up. It was the same in the league and they came back to win it. It was nil-nil for us at half-time. We had a lot of scores up then before Patrick got the second goal.”
