WATCH: Quinn hails full-forward partner Varley

St Vincent's full forward Mossy Quinn says strike partner Enda Varley "has made my life easier" over the previous two seasons.

Former Mayo forward Varley, who was on the losing side in the Yew County's 2012 and 2013 All-Ireland defeats to Donegal and Dublin, joined St Vincent's from his hometown club Garrymore in 2016.

Dublin-based teacher Varley, who opted to join the Marino club after tiring of the three-hour drive each way to training at Garrymoore, scored 1-8 in Saturday's 2-17 to 2-15 win over Na Fianna at Parnell Park in the Dublin SFC Championship.

And Quinn, who turns 37 this year, says Varley has added far more than points and goals during his time at the club.

"He has been brilliant for us the last couple of years, he has been a brilliant addition to the club, not just on the pitch but off the pitch and what he does in the dressing room," Dublin 2011 All-Ireland winner Quinn told eir Sport.

"He makes my life easier inside as well. Teams know they have to mark because we have players who can score from different areas.

"Myself and Enda got them today [Quinn scored 1-4 against Na Fianna], but we know we have other guys who can do that, and that is what our success in the last few years has been based on."

Varley, who was dropped from the Mayo panel in February 2015, is not expecting manager Stephen Rochford to hand him a shock recall for this summer's championship.

"I've a wedding in June so I'm all right," he joked.

Defending champions St Vincent's, who are looking to claim a third successive county title, are now through to the quarter-finals of this year's competition after the victory over Na Fianna, their second win from two matches in Group 1.
