Clan na Gael produced another amazing comeback last weekend and it’s all down to belief says star man Stefan Campbell.
Ronan McMahon’s side trailed 8-2 in the second half but nabbed a draw before winning by two after extra time.
It’s not the first time the Clans have had to force a comeback during this campaign. And they certainly don’t know when they’re beat.
“It feels good. It was just an unbelievable result; nobody gave us a chance,” Campbell told Armagh TV after their win over Clann Eireann.
“But the work that we have done since I have come back has been unbelievable. Credit to that management team, credit to the players.
“When you have that belief, anything can happen, and we were quietly confident. We didn’t say too much coming into this game.
“We were up against probably the favourites to win the lot but when you have that belief anything can happen.
“People’s going to look at the red card as the turning point but how many games have we came back this year from seven or eight points down?
“That wasn’t a coincidence out there tonight. It’s 15, 20 men that believe in that process that we’ve set out to do and from the first game we’ve proved that we’re a second half team.”
Clan na Gael will now be preparing for their first Senior Championship final since 2006 and Crossmaglen stand between them and the Gerry Fagan Cup.
But Campbell, who top scored on Saturday night with a personal haul of 0-10, expects “hard work” at training over the next two weeks.
“Knowing the two Ronan’s (McMahon and Austin) and Eamon (McEvoy), just hard work.
“I’m sure they’ll let us enjoy tonight and bring us back down to earth on Tuesday. Hard work, that’s the only thing those boys know.”
