Quick return to London for well travelled Erne men



Peter Canavan and his Fermanagh team will be heading back to London this weekend

Fermanagh head back to London this weekend to play the Exiles in the rearranged NFL fixture ,the original fixture had to be called off in early February due to snow in the London area.
There had been some speculation that the rearranged game would be scheduled for a date in April after the completion of the eight match programme but Croke Park has insisted that the fixture be played on the weekends of February 18/19 or 25/26.
Presumably this is to ensure that come the final round of the league no side will have an unforeseen advantage. Fermanagh had indicated a willingness to travel during this short NFL recess.
Fermanagh have opted for this coming weekend which makes it very short notice indeed but in reality there was little difference between either weekend.
A busy programme had already been planned for training etc so there should be no great problem with player availability.
