Wayne looks for home draw

HE might have missed the game with injury but it was impossible to find a happier man in Pairc Sean last Saturday than Wayne McKeon who is already looking forward to the next game.

“It was awful tough watching it,” admitted Wayne, “but any day they win, I’m happy to sit there, it was a savage performance from every one of them. It was tough but there are lads to come in there, step into my position and do just as good, if not, better job. There is great spirit in the camp at the minute and that win is going to make it twice as strong. “

Nonetheless Wayne admitted his nerves were fraying towards the end – “The last five minutes when they took it back to two points and lobbed in a few high balls, it was nerve wracking but the boys dealt fierce well with it. The ball broke our way and maybe it was our day but the performance was absolutely magnificent and I’ll take it any day.”

As for the qualifiers, Wayne said “I wouldn’t want Kerry, maybe somebody a bit smaller would be nice. Hopefully, we’ll get another home draw and hopefully, we’ll take it to another level. “
