Micheál Glynn says that he is honoured to have been named captain of this year’s St Michael’s MacRory Cup squad.

The Derrygonnelly Harps player was a key component of the side that won MacRory and Hogan Cups last year and has been selected to lead the squad with Josh Largo Elis, Darragh McBrien and Joe McDade named as vice captains.

“I was delighted when I found out that I was picked by Mr Corrigan to be captain and it is a great honour to lead such a great bunch of lads,” said Glynn.

The forward would love to retain the titles that they won last year but he stresses that the only focus for them is the opening game against St Colman’s on November 9.

“We will be aiming to achieve what we did last year but we will focus first on getting through a very tough group starting against St Colman’s on November 9. We will just be focusing on that game for now and it is about just taking it one game at a time.”

Glynn does feel though that they have another good squad this year.

“We have a large number of the panel still here from last year and a few of new boys coming in from surrounding schools like Oisin Murphy and Lawrence McKeown who have brought a lot to the squad,” he added.

And he is now looking forward to the games getting underway.

“I’m looking forward to the games getting started. We can learn a lot from the group games about the squad and where we are at and over the Christmas period we will do a lot of work and get ourselves to where we want to be for championship.”
