Paul Munster talks to Christopher Andrews for LinfieldFC.com

One final hurdle remains. Two games in the north and east of the city that will determine the destination of the Gibson Cup. It promises to be an occasion of great tension, no more so than for those who take the field. One of those hoping to be involved is Linfield’s Paul Munster for whom injury prevented him from being involved in Saturday's home game against Lisburn Distillery.

A fine debut season is coming to a close for a player who has ‘enjoyed every moment.’

He says, “I have tried to take my chances, and score as many as I can. It is a very competitive squad, so you need to be at your best to make an impact.”

“I have tried to just focus on the games, but I must say the fans have been great to me, and I hope things continue to go well.”

Paul is perhaps one of the most well travelled footballers to grace Irish League football in recent times, having plied his trade in Canada, the Czech Republic and in Sweden, before his return home last August. Analysing his own form of late, he states that, “I feel I have done reasonably well. I got a bit of a knock recently but am looking to try get back into the side again.”

“It is a lot different in Irish League football. The first thing you notice is how much more physical the game is. There can be a lot of long balls and it is sometimes frustrating, but it’s all go. In other countries it was more down to positional play and short passing, but you have to adapt.”

Reflecting on the league run-in, Paul believes that everyone needs to be mentally prepared to tackle the job at hand.

“Putting it simply we need to give 100%. Everyone is looking for the three points, and it is then up to us to hope the Glens slip up. But we have always just had to win our games and focus on what we need to do, that doesn’t change.”
