Lisburn Distillery's McShane still on a medal mission

By Stuart McKinley

Pat McShane is refusing to give up on adding to his bulging medal collection.

Despite leaving Linfield in the summer and turning 34 last month, the left-back has his sights on lifting silverware once again.

Lisburn Distillery is his home now and McShane sees trophy-winning potential in the Ballyskeagh dressing room.

“When you leave Linfield it is only natural to start wondering if you will ever win anything again,” said McShane, ahead of tonight’s Co-operative Insurance Cup quarter-final trip to Glenavon.

“I thought that myself, but as the season has gone on the more I am convinced that my days of winning medals aren’t over.

“We had around the end of September and beginning of October, but over the last few weeks we’ve been strong again and we’ve had some great results.

“We maybe haven’t been as consistent as we’d have liked, but we’ve got a good squad with lots of talent in it and we’re hungry to win something.”

The Whites led Glenavon 2-0 on their last visit to Mourneview Park before drawing 2-2.

“We were comfortable at 2-0, but once they got the first back they came on strong,” said Pat.
