Guickan: Leitrim Set For Tough FBD Campaign

Leitrim manager Benny Guickan admits that Leitrim have a tough FBD League campaign ahead of them.

Roscommon overcame Guickan’s team by 14 points, 1-3 to 2-14 in front of 1,000 people at the Leitrim GAA Centre of Excellence in Annaduff.

“Its early Janauary, What we’re looking for is progression” explained Guickan having fielded a largely inexperienced side against the Connacht champions.


“Our target is the 28th of this month against Antrim and we have to use these games to look at fella’s and hopefully progress from game to game.”

However Guckian admitted concerns about his team’s ability find scores having scored just two first half points before Brendan Gallagher’s

“That’s definitely a concern, I suppose we were trying to hold Roscommon defensively and we suffered then in attack and we had a lot of bodies back in our own half, so we we’re quick enough to turn it into attack.”
