For the Fermanagh players, last Friday night was the first time that any of them tasted a championship win in a county jersey.
It was ten years since they won an U21 game and none of them had enjoyed that winning feeling at minor level either so it was a big monkey off the back.
Centre half forward Callum Jones played a big role in the win over Donegal, landing three fine points as Fermanagh finished up two point victors, and the Enniskillen Gaels player believes that there is more to come from this team.
“We always knew that we had the players to win the game and the boys have worked hard.
“Donegal are a good team but I thought that everybody played well. We dominated the game and maybe should have won by more so we maybe just need to be a bit more clinical. I feel though that there is still more in us and we will need that against Derry because they are going to be another step up,” he said.
Belief is something that this group have in abundance and Jones says that comes from knowing the quality that there is in the squad.
“You just have to look around the changing room at the quality in the squad. We can bring real quality in off the bench and that is very important. We would have good belief in ourselves and hopefully we can show our quality on Friday night.”
And he knows that they will have to be at their best if they are to make it through to an Ulster final with the Oak Leaf side having produced a stirring comeback to come from ten points down to beat Armagh in their semi-final.
“It is going to be a tough one. Derry are very good and I noticed that two of their best players went off in the semi final win over Armagh which shows how strong a squad they have to come back and win because that Armagh team have some real quality forwards as well,” he added.
Jones does know what it takes to win an Ulster title having won an Ulster Minor Club with the Gaels. 
Indeed, five of that side started last Friday night with another four on the bench and they bring a winning mentality with them.
“I suppose with that group, we wouldn’t be used to losing and that’s a good thing,” he added.
It has been a frustrating period though for the player who has struggled for the best part of a year with injury but he is now hoping to put all that behind him.
“I got injured playing for Fermanagh U20s against Armagh in the championship last year and I had to get ankle surgery and then I have had a hamstring injury. 
"It is about just keeping doing the rehab and doing things right and hopefully I can stay injury free now and get a run at it,” commented Callum.
He was though called up by Rory Gallagher to his senior squad and he feels that has helped bring his game on.
“I feel I have got stronger physically and I’ve got fitter To be playing and training with the best in the county can only help to improve you.”
But for now the focus is on theU20s and having got that first championship win, they will be targeting another on Friday night with a place in the Ulster final up for grabs.
“It’s going to take a big performance but hopefully we can produce that and get through,” he concluded.
