Speaking to Tipp FM’s Paul Carroll after the match Ronan Maher said game time is important for Sar’s at the moment.

“Yeah, like this is probably…we’re a newish enough team so its good for us to be building all this experience and its good to even be playing here in the preliminary quarter-finals today. It gives us another opportunity to improve as a team so thankfully we got out on top.”
