PICTURE SPECIAL: DONEGAL MANAGER AND CAPTAIN DELIGHTED WITH FIRST ULSTER TITLE

first_imgVICTORIOUS Donegal manager Davy McLaughlin has saluted his heroic players after they stunned favourites Monaghan to win the Ulster Senior Football Championship for the first time in the county’s history today.The proud Moville man has done outstanding things with a squad of players since taking charge 16 months ago.And now he can look forward to an All-Ireland quarter final in four weeks time. “The girls deserved it, for all their hard work and for all their hard work here today,” said Davy after the game.“They have worked so so hard and today they got their reward for that. We looked in control throughout and I could see the Monaghan heads drop midway through the first half because they weren’t expecting that today.“We were outstanding right throughout the pitch. We have experience and youth out there and we set out to play the game not the occasion and that certainly paid off for us today.”The Donegal manager was left baffled by a number of referee decisions; not least a goal by Niamh Hegarty in the second half which was given as a point. “Everyone saw the Monaghan keeper pick the ball out of the back of the net. I’m just glad we are not talking about that at the end of the game when point was given instead of a goal, but it was perplexing to say the least.”Glenfinn’s Katy Herron was outstanding today; and was on the rough end of some harsh treatment.She was just delighted with the win.“We’ve worked so so hard and today it all paid off,” she said.“All of us worked hard on the day too; we knew we were up for it from the start and we got going quickly.” Aoife McDonnell was named Player of the Match for her performance.And Termon’s Geraldine McLaughlin was once again the difference up front and she worked so well with Milford’s Amber Barrett today.Said Geraldine: “This is a wonderful day for Donegal Ladies football. We will enjoy the next couple of days and get back to training on Wednesday and get ready for the All-Ireland quarter final.”Donegal are likely to play Armagh or Westmeath in the next game.
