first_imgGlenswilly GAA captain Gary ‘Copper’ McFadden has revealed how his side used their vast underdog status to help them lift another senior county title.Very few gave the Foxhall club any chance of beating the in-form Kilcar side when the pair met at a rain-soaked Mac Cumhaill Park.Indeed the bookies were offering up to 6/1 on Glenswilly lifting their third Dr Maguire Cup (plenty of Glenswilly folk got in on that action!) Hundreds turned up for the team’s homecoming in their clubhouse last night where McFadden told MC Charlie Collins how they always had a plan.‘Copper’ told how he and the rest of his team were sick to the teeth of hearing how well Kilcar could do in Ulster without even a mention that Glenswilly could win the tie.He also had a special word for the media reminding them of how few of them gave Glenswilly any chance of beating Martin McHugh’s charges.There was a tremendous reaction to the arrival of the team on stage where Glenswilly chairman Peter McConnell paid tribute to Michael Canning and his management team and his players. Canning paid tribute to Glenswilly supporters and all those involved with the underage structures at the club whom he said were laying the foundation stones of try future.He said that hopefully in ten or twenty years time, these young players would also be lifting the Dr Maguire Cup.‘Copper’ reveals how underdog status spurred Glenswilly on to become champions was last modified: October 17th, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img
