Evans seeks response

Wicklow manager John Evans

Wicklow manager John Evans has urged his players to respond positively to last weekend's defeat to London.

The Garden County were soundly beaten by the Exiles in Ruislip last Sunday and now they must turn their attentions to a county that have been unbeaten in the Division Four campaign so far, Antrim.

Over the next four weeks, Evans' charges will face Antrim, Laois and Carlow, the top three teams in the division, but he feels that if they can lift themselves, they will be a challenge for anyone they meet.

"We made four changes from the last day, some of them enforced through injury, we're always trying out new players," Evans told the Wicklow People.

"It's about establishing a new team, bringing in a lot of young players and giving them experience. While we were disappointed with the result on Sunday we will look at the first game first which is against Antrim on Sunday and I certainly will be hoping for a good reaction after the loss against London."
