Belnaleck celebrate

Belnaleck manager Gerry Flanagan was looking at the bigger picture following their Ulster club JFC final defeat last weekend.

The Fermanagh champions lost out to Donegal's Naomh Colmcille in the provincial decider and obviously there was utter devastation amongst the players afterwards.

However, when speaking to the Fermanagh Herald, Flanagan stressed that it had been a remarkable year for the club regardless of last weekend's result.

"It has been a great journey for the lads by firstly winning the Fermanagh county title and showing great character to come back and do it after the pain of being beaten in two junior finals on the trot in 2015 and 2016," said Flanagan.

"Then they had a great run in Ulster finishing up in a provincial final which is a great achievement. It just did not go our way in the second half, a few mistakes and a few slips of the ball. You can't afford to make mistakes at this level."
