Evergreen captain Niall Andrews says it’s been a real group effort on their journey to Saturday’s FAI Junior Cup Final.
Speaking to KCLR, Niall says that every member of the squad has played their part en route to the Aviva.
“There was three or four penos scored before that(the Semi-Final victory) so I was just lucky enough that mine was the one that won it, but their was a lot of hard work.
“There was 90 minutes, there was 20 minutes of extra-time, their was 7 or 8 rounds before that so I am just part of a bigger unit so look we have 20, 22 lads who have worked hard all year.
We have no weaknesses in the squad we don’t think. We have players who can step in for any other players, it doesn’t weaken the team so it is definitely a group effort and then the lads behind the scenes like Packie and Brian Holden, Stephen Guidara, David Roche, it’s a real group effort to tell you the truth.”
Meanwhile Evergreen player/manager Packie Holden says they can have no regrets while taking to the field for the Final.
Speaking to KCLR, Packie says this is their biggest ever chance of winning the cup.
“I’m 38 years old and I am going to play in the Aviva Stadium for the first time. These dreams come true and if you keep plugging away and listen to your coaches and you train hard and look after yourself of course, maybe one day it could be you.
“We have to leave it all out on the pitch, the worst thing would be if you felt that you didn’t fulfill your ability, didn’t work as hard as you might have, hopefully it’s not about one chance, this is our big chance this year and these things don’t come around very often so you have got to make surer that you have no regrets whatsoever.”
