Janesboro FC joint manager Aidan Ryan is hopeful that the hunger and desire shown by Janesboro in the last three years will not diminish as ‘Boro aim to win the Limerick District Premier League for a club record fourth time in a row.
Last season, Ryan and Shane O’Hanlon’s charges defeated Ballynanty on the final day to clinch the league and Ryan wants the senior players to drive on the new younger players in the squad and maintain the high standards reached in recent seasons.
There is no doubting that Ryan and O’Hanlon will be eager to add either Munster Junior or FAI Junior Cup success to the southsiders trophy cabinet also.
I think a lot will hinge on the senior players and how they react, while also seeing how they bring new and younger players that we have brought in this season along.
Obviously we will be trying to do as well as we can in the league this year. It was great to win it three years in a row and we were delighted with that as it was a great achievement. We will be giving it everything we have got.
We have Cormac Roche coming in from Abbeyfeale. We have also signed Tyrique Leamy and Frank Hehir who were part of last season’s Oscar Traynor Youths squad. We have also got Jason Cross back from Limerick and Tommy Holland will be joining as I think a lot of people knew already.
Janesboro begin their campaign with a mouth watering clash away to last year’s league runners up Pike Rovers who have a new management team of Brian O’Callaghan and Robbie Williams following the resignation of Mick Shiel. The game is on Thursday, August 15th with a 6.30 kick-off.
