Leitrim have been boosted by the return of former captain Paddy Maguire.

As the Connacht side prepare for Sunday’s clash against Westmeath, the return of Maguire will strengthen their defence.

Leitrim manager Brendan Guckian revealed to the Leitrim Observer that a change in Maguire’s plans to travel have seen him do a u-turn on his decision to leave the squad.

“I’ve been in contact with Paddy over the last couple of months, Paddy was due to go travelling but his circumstances have changed and he is back training with the lads from about two weeks ago,” said Guckian.

“Paddy is, without doubt, a very talented footballer and I set out from day one that I wanted Leitrim’s best footballers involved with the panel, so I’m delighted he is back. He obviously has a lot of work to do but the good thing is Paddy is willing to put in that work.”
