Gavin Warrington is confident that Enniskillen can bring home the Towns’ Cup to Fermanagh, despite going into the final as underdogs. They are up against reigning cup holders Ballyclare, but despite the quality of the opposition he says there is a belief in the squad that this could be their year.

“We want it and we are more than capable of doing it,” he said. “I personally am confident. There is a good belief in all the boys. We turned the corner after Christmas and we are unwilling to lie down now. The longer a game goes on now the more we want to win. There is no getting away from it. We are hungry for it.”

That confidence comes from Enniskillen’s recent good form. After a mixed opening to the campaign, the team have put together some good results to climb out of the relegation danger zone to finish the season safely in mid-table.

“I would write off the first half of the season completely,” admitted Gavin.

“We got off to a good start and had a few narrow defeats against the top four teams, and probably should have beaten the top four teams in the league, but we lost out in the last ten minutes of most of those games.

“Then we had a really poor period in September and October. We had seven or eight weeks with no games and lost our run. Finally we got our act together after Christmas and that is the reason we were able to finish mid table, and are heading to the Towns’ Cup Final on Easter Monday. We finally figured out a way to win.”

Gavin is hoping the winning habit is repeated on Monday, and he has seen enough in their recent encounters with Ballyclare to know that they can get the better of them on the day.

“They are last year’s winners and very nearly won the league this year, so without a doubt they are a very talented and strong side,” he conceded.

“Although we didn’t come out on top both times we met them this year, we did manage to beat them last year away. It was the last game of the season for them.

“We had to win to stay up and they had to win to be in with a chance of winning the league, and we beat them, so I don’t fear them and I don’t think anyone else in the squad fears them.

“The longer the game goes on, if we can stay in it we will win it, but we can’t let them get away with a few early scores.”

Gavin own personal form is one of the reasons for the side’s dramatic improvement. He has been a regular try scorer, and grabbed the try that took them to the final at the expense of local rivals Clogher Valley. He is hoping that he can repeat that feat on the big stage on Monday.

“It would be great to get one in the final,” he acknowledged.

“I have probably had the best season I have ever had in the 16 or 17 years I’ve been playing with the club. I have 11 tries under my belt so I’m not doing so bad at all. I don’t know what has caused that, but I have found a bit of form.

“To get the winning try in the semi-final was enough, and if I was able to get at least one in the final it would definitely round off a great end to the season. Hopefully it will be enough to lift the cup too.”
