Luke McGlynn said the Glenfin Under-21s have to give the club something in order to ease the pain of the disappointing senior team campaign.
Glenfin reached the U21B final after defeating Aodh Ruadh today, and McGlynn, who scored 0-6, feels it is needed after the disappointment of the senior team’s Championship campaign.
“There’s a couple of boys there in the senior team, we’re really hurt from our senior team campaign, we knew we underachieved.
“Us boys we came together and said we have to give the club something because I thought we really underachieved at senior level.
A one point win over Aodh Ruadh Ballyshannon today in Convoy saw them reach the final, which was a bit of vengeance for the club after losing 3-12 to 0-10 to them a month ago.
McGlynn added: “We played against Ballyshannon in the group stages and they came up to Glenfin and they absolutely hockey’d us off the pitch and it really put us back down to earth and we learned from it.
“We came out there in the first half and we were excellent in the first 20 minutes and we dropped off, they came back and a team like that is always going to get a purple patch on you but thank god we weathered it in the end up.”
Glenfin took the lead in the first minute through Gavin McCormack, while McGlynn himself kicked two points in the first 10 minutes, and were ahead of for the remainder of the game, and McGlynn said that was vital in the win.
“It’s always so important to keep in front because you have that cushion to kick on and we knew we had the players to really kill the game off.”
The win gives Glenfin a reward of facing local rivals Glenswilly in the final, and McGlynn added: “You’re only crossing the border there! We know what Glenswilly’s going to come to the table with but I think we’ll worry about ourselves this week because I think we have the players and we’ll just worry about ourselves.
