Glenealy Hurling manager Garry Laffan says that players involvement with the Rathnew Football Team has worked quite well up to now.
Speaking to KCLR ahead of Saturday’s Leinster Intermediate Club Final, Garry is hoping they can get a performance to see where it will take them.
“I am from a duel club myself in Wexford Glynn-Barntown with Senior Hurling and Senior Football so I would have been acutely aware of the trials of it, but look all I could do is speak with Harry Murphy the Rathnew manager and we try to sort off on a week on week off basis with the Hurling and the Football and sort of worked up to now.
“Both clubs have gone on quite well. It’s a new dawn for us here going into a Leinster Final but sure we are going up there and hopefully we will get a performance and see where that takes us really,” he said.
Meanwhile St. Patricks Ballyragget manager Jim Lyng says they expect a full blooded battle from Glenealy in Saturday’s decider.
Speaking to KCLR, Jim says the fact Glenealy won the Wicklow Senior Hurling Final proves they are a very formidable team despite Wicklow not being a traditional hurling force.
“They are obviously a formidable team. They had a great win the last day over the Wexford Champions and that was a significant win for them so we will be taking their challenge very very seriously and we would expect a full blooded battle on Saturday.”
