“I think it’s a huge part of it. I’d go to the cinema with someone like Eoin Murchan, Brian Fenton and his partner, Sarah, and sometimes Con O’Callaghan. Obviously, when we’re within the Championship season, you don’t obviously get to go out and have a drink with these guys. We get on so well outside of football that I think it makes you that bit hungrier and that bit more willing to put it all out on the line for them. That’s the sign of this team, their humility, and just the friendship we have in the group is fantastic,” Cluxton said. “Like, if I never won a medal in football for any team, the friendship we have is just better than anything.
“Because people can talk the talk sometimes, and they don’t back it up with the actions. These guys put it in every day on the training field and that’s what I get from them.”
