Corcoran: We Have Adjusted Well To The Premier Leagueby Cork Sports News January 10, 2020
Darragh Corcoran will lead his side out tonight in a local derby against Avondale in what is sure to be another full blooded affair.
Carrigaline have held their own against their more ilustrious opponents and their captain is lloking forward to it.
“Tonight’s a huge game, we beat them early on in the season so we’re confident we can get some result.
“We’re missing a few key players like Conor Drinan, Brian Murphy but hopefully we’ll manage without the lads.
Half way through the season now and we’re happy with how things have gone so far and hopefully we can push on, starting with a win tonight,” said Darragh.
Having been promoted as runners-up last season, Carrigaline have done reasonably well at the highest level and Darragh feels they were never going to be a soft touch for anybody.
“Obviously games are much tougher, every game you play, you’re up against the best teams around.
“It’s where you want to be playing though and we’ve a very young side and I think everyone has adjusted very well to the league, there’s rarely a team that will get an easy game off us and I think people have seen that from the first half of the season.
“Obviously, the main objective was to avoid relegation and hopefully we’re on course to stay up and build for next season,” commented Corcoran.
Carrigaline have facilities now to match any club in the country so it must be exciting to be a part of it and it’s a club now that must be expressing huge ambitions in adult, youth and schoolboy football.
“It’s great to be involved, the clubhouse is packed with different teams every night of the week and young kids on Saturday mornings.
“It’s brilliant to see and hopefully now the senior team can start to match that.
“Tim is doing a great job alongside Val and Edwin, the work they put in is second to none so they are exciting times ahead for the club.” concluded Darragh.
