Mullins's Fears Over Vincent's Attitude Allayed In Clontarf Win

Mullins's Fears Over Vincent's Attitude Allayed In Clontarf Win

St Vincent's booked a place in the quarter-finals of the Dublin Senior Football Championship with an 11-point victory over Clontarf on Saturday evening.

Vincent's won the game, which was live on RTÉ, 2-16 to 0-11.

The Marino side finished second in Group 3 behind Ballyboden St Enda's. Earlier this month, Ballyboden had inflicted a chastening defeat on Vincent's. Though the gap between the teams was only six points, the 5-11 which Ballyboden scored was of concern.

Vincent's manager, club and Dublin legend Brian Mullins, told Dubs TV that he held concerns about his team's attitude going into Saturday's game but those fears had been allayed.

"We were uncertain about how the team would turn up in terms of effort and in terms of determination," said Mullins.

"They turned up very well.

"We were slightly concerned that there might be some disappointment still about the Ballyboden game 10 days ago. In fairness to our lads, they really got stuck in and delivered a performance that we're very happy with.

"I had my own questions, I wouldn't necessarily consider public questions. We got off to a similar start and put scores on the scoreboard better this day than we did against Ballyboden. That was satisfying.

"During the game, we sustained the effort and maintained the workrate."
