Early start won’t hinder Leitrim

An earlier than normal start to the championship won’t be a problem for Leitrim according to joint manager Brian Breen who credits Strength & Conditioning coach Ollie Cummins for the standard of Leitrim’s fitness over the past two years.

An earlier than normal start to the championship won’t be a problem for Leitrim according to joint manager Brian Breen who credits Strength & Conditioning coach Ollie Cummins for the standard of Leitrim’s fitness over the past two years.

“It is an early start, it probably focuses fellows a bit more,” said Breen, “Ollie Cummins, our strength and conditioning coach, works out all our training programmes and I don’t think there has been any game this year or last year have we lost a game through fitness.

“Ollie is in control of all that and we’re very happy with our level of fitness, even though there is always going to be things you are working on in the last week or two.”

The break between the League and the championship was enough to make necessary adjustments according to the Leitrim manager - “We had that run in the League of four games in five weeks so it is hard to adjust our problems week in, week out, players are injured so we hadn’t time to focus in on things. We’ve had that time now, we’ve talked about the League and where we felt things went wrong and we’re pushing to correct them now.”
