Glynn expects tough London clash

WICKLOW take on London this Sunday in the first round of the national football league and Rathnew's Leighton Glynn will make his return to Wicklow action competitively after playing in a practice game against Offaly on Sunday. It's a welcome return for the entire county and Leighton says it feels good.

"Felt great to pull on the yellow and blue again you know I think it's 18 months since I was able to do it last so it was really good to get a run out, the knee held up well and it was just a bit sore afterwards but I expected that," said Glynn

London provide tough opposition on Sunday and Leighton says they cannot take London for granted.

"London are going to be serious operators this year, they got to a Connacht final last year, that's no easy feat and they also have nearly 30 new transfers who are all eligible so they'll be very hard to beat but we've put in a serious effort, Harry has the lads really well prepped and they're well up for the league this year so it's going to be good".

Since Glynn has been absent the black card has been introduced into Gaelic football and he thinks referees have gone easy enough in the early provincial competitions but the league will be different.

"The referees we had in the O'Byrne went fairly easy on the black card, what you actually had was a lot of chat between refs and players and kind of fore warning but the league I'd say that'll be gone and the black cards will be out," finished Leighton.
