Clonguish boss Liam Belton admits they are underdogs going into the Longford senior football final.
Clonguish advanced to the final after beating Dromard 1-12 to 1-11 in their tight semi-final after extra-time.
Killoe Emmett Og will be the opponents, Killoe having made short work of the defending champions Colmcille 1-12 to 1-7.
“We’ll probably be going in as underdogs” explained Belton. “As I said earlier, Killoe and Mullinalaghta have dominated in terms of championships won”.
“We’ll look forward to it” added Belton. “We’re delighted to be there by the skin of our teeth, so we’ll just look forward to it”.
Clonguish advanced after Francie McGee’s last gasp free sailed wide of the post. If converted the game would have been decided on penalties.
Clonguish had fought back in normal time with two points in the final three minutes to send the game to extra-time, having finished 1-7 each.
“We’ll have to just dust ourselves down and recover” explained Belton. “There’s a lot of sore bodies and lot of tired bodies”.
“As a management team, we’ll have lots to reflect on and like every game, we’ll prepare accordingly”.
Clonguish face Killoe Emmet Og in the Peter Hanley Motors Longford senior final on Sunday October 15. Throw-in is 4pm.
Whereas, the Ballymore versus Killoe, Longford junior final will take place at 1:45pm as the curtain raiser to the senior final.
