Frank McGlynn is encouraged by the emergence of a new generation of attacking talent in Donegal.
Versatile Tir Chonail veteran McGlynn has played alongside some of his county's finest-ever forwards - including Michael Murphy and Patrick McBrearty from the current side and men like Colm McFadden and Brendan Devenney in the not-too-distant past - and he looked on with obvious pleasure as new team-mates Ciaran Thompson, Michael Langan, Jamie Brennan and substitute Cian Mulligan caught the eye against Cavan at the weekend.
"Michael Langan lit up the Ulster U21 championship there last year and he showed [on Sunday] what a quality footballer he is. If he gets a yard or two he can put it between the posts, and the same too with Ciaran Thompson," he comments in The Irish News.
"He had a fantastic national league last year and hopefully now those two boys can kick on and do big things this summer. Jamie Brennan too, boys like that are adding big time to the forward line.
"You've still the likes of Patrick and Michael who can cause damage to any defence, but it's positive when you can spread that weight of score-getting around the whole six forwards."
