Athlone Players On Top Of Mentality - Tommy Hewitt

Midlanders in position to challenge for a league and cup double.

Athlone Town's manager believes his team can sustain the ups and the downs of elite football over the coming weeks.

Tommy Hewitt's side are in the mix for a Women's National League and FAI Cup double this season.

They sit fourth in the league but only three points off table-toppers Wexford Youths whom they beat both in the cup and league last week.

Their final four games take place across four consecutive weeks from Saturday October 15th onwards.

Three league games precede the FAI Cup final.

Athlone has a trip to Treaty United, they host Galway, then travel to Dublin to play Bohemians in the final round.

The FAI Cup decider takes place in Tallaght on Sunday November 6th.

Speaking to David Hollywood, Town manager Tommy Hewitt begins by talking about how the last few weeks have been special for the club.
