WATCH: O’Donoghue confident of Regional re-building project

Regional United manager Shane O’Donoghue believes that the current squad can bounce back from losing some high profile players during the summer months to have a good season. Regional begin their campaign this evening with a trip to Aisling Annacotty (6.30).

The club have suffered the losses of defensive trio Clyde O’Connell and Alan Murphy (both Limerick FC) and Jack Lynch (Galway United) as well as the late loss of Pat McDonagh to rivals Janesboro.

Year on year, Regional appear to undertake re-building projects as players are snapped which may frustrate many managers but O’Donoghue played for Limerick FC in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s and is happy that the club can produce players for the local senior soccer club.

“I don’t think frustration is the right word. I played a long time in the League of Ireland myself so I fully understand guys wanting to go to play that level and test themselves.

“Regional has always been that type of club where guys have come in and done well and made a name for themselves. Garbhan Coughlan pops into my head when I think of that.

“With Murph, Clyde and Jack moving on to Limerick and Galway respectively, we wish them well and you can do no more when guys want to make the step up to League of Ireland level.”

O’Donoghue also speaks about his reservations regarding the new Premier division structure and his disappointment at the late departure of Pat McDonagh. We also receive an insight into the players brought into the club and Shane’s opinion on the standard of junior soccer.
