Amongst all the annoyance, we have managed to find someone to speak about the game itself. Looking ahead, Dicksboro manager Micheal Walsh reckons the close call against Kilmacud Crokes was a scare they needed before they meet Ballygunner;
“It could be the best thing to happen to them. It was a little bit alarming and it certainly would not want to happen in the next match. They have individual brilliance and physicality, but so does Ballygunnar.”
“It was a massive game last year, but in the final Shamrocks were the better team. They had the match won, and should of having had it pushed out further. They didn’t and they paid for it.”
“They will have the motivation to try and overturn that.”
