Laverty praises impact of boss McCorry

Down player Conor Laverty says manager Jim McCorry has brought a "freshness" to the Mourne squad as a victory over Laois secures promotion to Football League Division One.

"Our goal was to get back into the top tier and now we're looking forward to the League final and then Derry at Celtic Park in the Ulster Championship," said Laverty.

"Jim has brought in some new players and there is a new professionalism to the squad," said Laverty.
