“However, we also kicked a few shots into the keeper’s hands and all that will have to be looked at, with the aim of improving matters before our next game.
“It’s vital that, when you are trying to blood new players, that the older ones are there to help them along and, on this note, the experienced Brian Hurley is a big loss, but he will be out for the rest of the year, unfortunately.
“Hopefully, he will continue to inspire his colleagues, as he is Castlehaven through and through. We changed around some of our players in today’s game against the students, as we needed to bring out some of our speedy players and, with the way the game is now being played, everyone must be adaptable.
“I was very pleased with the way in which we met the challenge, after retiring four points adrift, and the positive way they responded to this particular test was another plus.
“Knowing that you have players that will give everything to the cause makes any manager’s job that little bit easier, so, taking everything into consideration, I am delighted with our victory today,” Collins said.
