Canavan says 'areas outside of our control' will need addressed
Published: 2 Jul 2012 23:12
Peter Canavan has described his first year as manager of Fermanagh as a very positive one overall but has said that "areas outside of our control" would "need to be addressed" in any end of year review.
He had, however, nothing but praise for the effort and dedication of the players and their ambition to succeed at inter-county level.
An honest Canavan was reflecting in the wake of a second half capitulation to Cavan that saw a six point lead turned into a seven point defeat as the Breffnimen plundered three quick goals.
"We have only had the team six months, so we would like to think they can get fitter, stronger, and there are things outside of our control people are going to have to look at as well but overall the experience I have got has been a very positive one.
" As I said to the boys out there their effort and dedication, while they have made mistakes, and did not take chances you could not fault their application or desire so I will not have a bad word to say about them.
"There is a lot of potential there, there are a lot of boys keen to do well and make progress for their county and that is good to see and there is ambition there, I would like to think they are heading the right way.
"We will look at our position at the end of the year, that is what I said when we came in. I did that with my own club and I will be doing it here. Certainly there are areas that need to be addressed and things we need to look at but it is not a decision to be made now that's for sure."
Canavan though would seem to have the backing County chairman who said at the end of Sunday's game he would like to see the current management team stay on.
"I would be hoping the management would be staying on, I have been very encouraged with the work they have done, they have brought a very professional approach to it and the work by the players themselves who have committed themselves fully to it. Hopefully we can go on and build on that and look forward to next year."
