Our build-up to Sunday's Cork SFC final gets underway with the thoughts of Castlehaven captain David Limrick

CASTLEHAVEN captain David Limrick doesn’t expect his side’s 2013 county final win against Nemo Rangers to have influence on this Sunday’s rematch between the two clubs.

Castlehaven won the 2013 Cork SFC final by 0-17 to 1-11 to capture the club’s fifth county senior title since 1989.

‘That game (2012 final) will have zero impact. We know how good Nemo are, we know how good a club they are, and what happened in 2013 won’t have any bearing on this game,’ Limrick said.

The Haven full back also insists that the competition for places in the team plays an important role as the West Cork club prepares for its fourth county final in five seasons.

‘They’re always fellas on the line who are trying to come in so that keeps fellas who are starting on their toes. There’s good pressure from the lads on the sideline. Even though the team might be relatively the same, people don’t get too comfortable in their positions. If you do, you’ll lose your place,’ Limrick said.
