Davitt Walsh feels as if Fanad United left an Ulster Senior League title behind them last season.
The Fanad skipper saw his team finish six points behind Cockhill Celtic and Letterkenny Rovers – whose title race went all the way to a play-off.
Fanad are the record winners with 14 USL crowns having returned to Traigh-A-Loch since 1986 and Walsh thinks another could have been secured
“We had a bad start and the League was given away,” Walsh says.
“Last year, we pushed Cockhill and Letterkenny very close.
“We were six points behind last year.
“We should have won the League, but we had too bad a start and left ourselves with too much to do. You can lose a league in the first few games, but you can’t win it.”
Fanad have bid adieu to the likes of Tony McNamee and Oisin McMenamin, who contributed almost 30 goals between them last season. But Walsh is optimistic that they can have another progressive season.
He says: “The team has changed a bit and we have a lot of young lads coming through form the youth team. We’re excited to see how they get on after stepping up. They’ll have to get to the pace of the game as quick as they can.”
