Speaking on TG4 after Armagh’s three point win over Donegal, Jarly Og Burns praised the home support for getting the team over the line.
Burns hit the crucial final point of the evening and picked up the TG4 man of the match award.
“I don’t think the supporters realise how important they are to us,” said the Silverbridge clubman.
“Even last week in Kerry, there was over 7,000 Armagh fans down, they are an unbelievable support.
“There you saw it tonight, the noise of the place. It really does drive you on and gives you energy in the legs. We’re so appreciative of the fans, they really are unbelievable.”
When it came to the crunch, Burns, who man-marked Michael Langan, stepped up and made a huge impact in the final quarter.
“It’s probably something we’ve lacked the last two or three games, apart from the Mayo game, we haven’t finished well.
“We’ve been disappointed with ourselves in that aspect. To finish strong there, in fairness they came back at us hard and didn’t make it easy on us as we knew they would.
“But the bench really made a difference there. They brought us them legs and we’re just delighted we pulled through there in the last four or five minutes with a couple of scores.”
Last year Burns successfully transformed to an attack-minded wing back, but has played at midfield for the last few outings.
“I’ve obviously played midfield my whole life and last year I got moved to wing back and it’s very similar.
“I usually play down that left wing. I was picked up Michael Langan today, tagging him, so that was something new as well.
“Obviously, he’s a very good player but thankfully the boys were helping me too and we kept them all quiet. It was a cagey enough game probably, especially in the second half there.
“But I’m happy to start anywhere for Geezer. You just do what your told and that’s it and you give it you’re all and that’s all I can do.”
