Mohill have made great progress over the past year but joint manager Liam Higgins believes they need to start winning Finals.

“There is a young team there,” said Liam, “you still need the experienced lads but there is a young team there and there are young players coming through, it is like a conveyor belt of talent coming through but it doesn’t guarantee anything.

“We have a good bunch of lads, they are very dedicated and are a credit to the club and hopefully, we can build on it. We definitely have the talent so hopefully we can learn from these finals and go on to the next step and win one.

“Six points down at halftime, then it was out to nine. It was hard to take in one way, being in finals and losing them is not a good habit to get in to so we have to break that habit fairly soon.”

Liam, who shares the job with Sean Kennedy, also believed that Glencar/Manor’s greater experience stood to them in the closing minutes - “I think with five minutes to go, we had it back to a point and we thought we had a great chance of another score.

“But the experience of Manorhamilton probably stood to them at the end and they used a bit of cuteness to hold out there. It was just a pity we fell short.”
