It’s been a tough few weeks for all associated with the Leitrim team but with the London game upon us, attention has returned to matters football.

Speaking last week at the media night ahead of the Connacht semi-final, joint manager Brian Breen spoke about a difficult few weeks, the challenge in store and the prize awaiting the winners.

“We did lose a week but we’ve come back bigger and stronger and united. Whatever complacency may have been in guys heads before this and I wouldn’t say there was because we know London too well, that is surely gone now. We have a serious hurdle to get over to get that prize. We’re under no illusions as to what London will bring.”

Brian was in Ruislip to witness London’s win over Sligo and he was impressed with what he saw. “Their fitness levels and tackling were superb,” he acknowledged.

“We are going to have to raise our standards in order to beat them. I have no doubt in my mind that on the day if we can play to the standards we are capable of, we will get a result.”
