SLAUGHTNEIL'S Brendan Rodgers admits the club's footballers remain as determined as ever to win an All Ireland title after becoming only the second club in history to complete a four-in-a-row of Derry titles.
The talented defender was speaking after the Emmet's defeated Ballinascreen on Sunday to emulate the great Bellaghy team of the late fifties and early sixties.
Defending champions Slaughtneil were always on top against their opponents and ran out comfortable 4-12 to 1-11 winners at Celtic Park.
“The All Ireland final against Corofin is a day you don't want to remember," admitted Rodgers.
“What happened with the football the first year, we want to right that wrong and prove we are not as bad a team as maybe it looked that day.
“We are not a poor hurling team, we are not a poor football team, and just because we come from a small area doesn't mean we can't keep it going.
“That is where we aim to be all the time, trying to better ourselves and hopefully one day get up those Hogan steps," he added.
