Sky’s the limit admits O’Donnell thumbnailDavid Paul, Butchers, Kilrea, presents a new match ball to Lyndon Kane, prior to Tuesday evening’s match with Cliftonville at Coleraine Showgrounds

COLERAINE new boy Stephen O'Donnell admits that while the players' feet are firmly on the ground, the sky's the limit for the current group of players at the Showgrounds.
The former Institute man joined the Bannsiders in the summer and has already become something of a cult hero with his goalscoring exploits from centre-back.
He's currently leading the goalscoring charts at the club, something he's quick to remind the strikers about, and has set himself an ambitious target for the season.
“I scored eight goals last season so I'd like to go one better this time so I've given myself a target of ten," admitted the 24-year-old who has scored two in his side's opening three games.
That quality was one manager Oran Kearney looked for when he enticed the player away from Drumahoe and he's already being handsomely rewarded.
But as O'Donnell is at pain to tell you, it's still early days and no-one, least of all him, is getting carried away.
