MANAGEMENT QUOTE

“Sporting Fingal have done great over the last two and a half years.

They showed in the away leg against Maritimo just how good they are, they've a good squad with some high profile players and they will be a test for us.

They've had some good results this season but also a few disappointing ones. Sometimes after a European night there might be on a bit of a comedown for a team but we will focus on our own game and just prepare properly” – Pete Mahon.
