If GAA mandarins are wondering how to structure a championship, they could do worse than take a little trip down to the Lakelands.
This Fermanagh under 21 panel is probably one of the best prepared sides from the county to field in the Ulster championship in recent years.
Pete McGrath has named his starting 15 to face Derry in Sunday’s NFL Division 2 opener.
Fermanagh have booked their place in the Ulster semi-final, but not before weathering a dogged challenge from a determined 14 man Antrim outfit, a late Sean Quigley penalty putting a handsome complexion on the final scoreline.
Fermanagh’s under 21 squad have been in steady preparation for their mid-March Ulster championship clash with Omagh.
Fermanagh manager, Pete McGrath, was ‘more than happy’ with how the four newcomers to inter-county football fared in their debuts on Sunday while the Down man also gave a clear signal that he is expecting his team to progress to the semi-final stage of the McKenna Cup.
The pursuit of goals is an obsession verging on addiction for Roslea. And it’s hard to argue with them when their three majors here proved the winning of the game.
Teemore face a huge test when they take on Roslea this Sunday. In the battle of the Shamrocks it has to be the Roslea men who are considered the warmest of favourites.
