Despite running out eight point victors
Although manager Danny McGrellis was more than happy with the result and performance of his players he admitted that there was still room for improvement.
“”I’m very pleased with the performance as we recorded a victory when in truth we were probably playing at 80 per cent of our ability. The lack of competitive matches probably showed in the first-half but as the game went on we grew in confidence and began to dominant the game. The girl’s showed a lot of character to come from behind and win the game.
“”It was a strange game because we were always in control but failed to tale our chances in the first 15 minutes but the second was a more accurate reflection of the game. Our midfield began to come out on top, the defence began to dominate the forwards took their scores but also made it difficult for the Wexford defence to clear the ball.””
With the Ulster Final now less than a week away McGrellis believes that Saturday’s victory sets his side up nicely to take on the current Ulster Champions Antrim.
“”Saturday’s win will certainly give us a boost going into next weekend’s clash with Antrim, we know it won’t be an easy game Antrim are always tough opposition. They would be seen as the favourites being the holders and they will be looking to retain that crown and won’t give it up easily. They had a better League campaign than us reaching the Final, they also had a convincing win over

“”It was a great team performance. We played very well in the first-half but let it slip in the second half for about 20 minutes and that’s when Roscommon did the damage. We can’t dwell on it too much as we play Tyrone on Tuesday, so we’ll take the positives and move on,”” said
