Leitrim open their Connacht Championship campaign on Sunday when they make the trip to face London in McGovern Park, Ruislip.

The new stand as well as a newly laid pitch will help add to the big match excitement and London captain Liam Gavaghan agreed this year's game may be bigger than years gone by as a result of the extra interest that has been generated but insists he and his team-mates are fully focused on the job at hand.

"You’ve got the new stand being put up and the new pitch being laid so yeah maybe it’s a bigger event. There is more media around it but we’re going out just to play football and do a job. All of the players are looking forward to it. Every year it is a big day in the London GAA calendar. We’re looking forward to it and hopefully it will be a great occasion."
