Brendan Rogers says Slaughtneil won't feel contented until they win an All-Ireland club football title.

The brilliant full back was already looking ahead to next February's All-Ireland semi-final against Nemo Rangers after the Derry kingpins retained their Ulster crown with a comfortable victory over Cavan Gaels yesterday.

"We certainly want to push on.," he told the Belfast Telegraph.

"We play Nemo Rangers next. It will be another good test. They are a formidable test. We definitely have a long winter ahead of us as regards preparation."

Rogers is very much aware of Nemo's proud history in the club championship.

"I've seen them before growing up," he continued.

"They have a long history of performing well at All-Ireland club level. We know beating [Dr] Crokes is a massive test for any team. We really cannot underestimate them.

"We will put in the work over the winter period."
