The weekend is upon us once again and more on-field activity awaits. The U21s play tomorrow and then the seniors take the field on Sunday.
The U21s have their second match in the North-West Cup. This one is against Donegal, which throws in at James Stephens Park in Ballina tomorrow at 2.30pm.
With both of the teams involved tomorrow having lost to Sligo in their respective opening matches in this tournament, the game in Ballina is a winner-take-all affair. Whoever comes out on top from this one goes forward for a reunion with the Magpies in the final, while it’s the end of the road for the losers.
On Sunday afternoon at Kiltoom the seniors play their third and, most likely, final outing in this year’s FBD League. In this one they’re up against Roscommon with throw-in at the St Brigid’s ground set for 2pm.
A number of regulars are set to resume action for us in this match and, dammit, I’ve decided it’s time to get back on the road myself for it as well. You’ll be relieved to know, though, that I won’t have the boots with me but I will have the iPhone so my first post-match audio warblings of 2017 could be on the agenda then.
By the way, I’m going to be offline all day tomorrow so there’ll be no cobbled together report on the U21s’ match from me. Back on Sunday with all the fun and games from Kiltoom.
