Conway: Team Is Fearless And We Show That On The Pitchby Cork Sports News November 15, 2019
St Mary’s welcome Rockmount to Kilcully tonight for an eagerly awaited Premier League game which is sure to attract a large crowd despite the icy conditions.
Jason Conway has played in a few of these games already and is looking forward to tonight’s chapter.
“Yes, it’s always a big game, a local derby but for us we just don’t let the occasion get the better of us, we just play to our strengths and play our own game and the result will look after it self.
“It’s a great game to be involved in I was fortunate enough to have played in a few of them but for some of the young lads it’s there first and they can’t wait for it, the lads are fearless, nothing phases them and it’s great to see,” said Conway.
St Mary’s had a sudden change in management early in the season and the squad have had to adapt to a different approach and different voices.
“With different manager and coaches coming in they have there own ideas as to how they want us to play, it didn’t really affect us at all, it was just a matter of getting on the training pitch and working on it and last week against Avondale you could really see it working, everything is done with a high intensity both with and without the ball.
“We will just take it one game at a time, we can’t get carried away and we need to stay grounded all the time and just keep working hard,” commented Conway.
Declan Daly’s side have also had to deal with the step up in class from first division to premier and they are finding their feet gradually with each game.
“It’s a huge step up, some mistakes you make in a game in the first division you simply just don’t get away with them in the premier and unfortunately for us we learned that the hard way.
“However, we keep learning and trying to put right, the wrongs, but this team deserves to be in the premier, we worked hard to get there coming up as champions and we will work even harder to stay there.
“Some of these lads, it’s their first time playing premier and it’s like they have been playing premier all their life and like I said before nothing phases them, they’re fearless and they show that every time they go on the pitch,” concluded Conway.
