Players impress Fox

Longford footballers pause for the National Anthem

Longford assistant manager Ciaran Fox believes that the attitude of the players will see them go far.

The Midlanders battled bravely against Armagh last weekend and probably deserved something from the game having played a large part of it with 14 men.

Despite this, they looked set to take the points, but a late surge from the Ulster side saw them maintain their unbeaten start to the National League campaign.

And Fox who worked with many of the players when he was Longford minor manager in 2010, when they won the Leinster MFC title, told the Longford Leader that these were good times for the county.

"I think every player is a club player first of all, that's the most important thing. The club develops and brings them along and for them to come in here and buy into Denis' management and they are very lucky in a way to have a very good manager like him," said Fox.

"They are very committed guys as you can see there for 75/80 minutes of the game against Armagh. We were down to 14 men and really put it up to them."
