Brackaville Begin Pursuit of Ulster Glory

Brackaville Owen Roes begin their Ulster Junior Championship campaign with a tie against Antrim champions Ardoyne Kickhams on Sunday at Healy Park, Omagh. Tyrone has a proud record in the competition following wins for Stewartstown, Greencastle and Derrytresk and the Roes will be hoping for a similar outcome in 2012. Indeed this will be Brackaville’s second appearance at provincial level following the club’s successful run in 2000 when they won the Intermediate equivalent.

Brackaville will enter Sunday’s game as strong favourites and they will be hoping to justify that tag with a convincing performance. Brackaville battled their way through the Tyrone championship with wins over Drumragh, Owen Roes, Drumquin and Brocagh, culminating in a stylish 6 point victory over Aghaloo in the final.

The basis of that win was formed in midfield where captain Cahir McGuinness and Rian McHugh excelled. If they can gain a similar stranglehold on Sunday, the full forward line of Che O’Donnell,Martin Gervin and Joe Rafferty will prove a handful for the Ardoyne defence. This, coupled with the strength of the Tyrone men’s bench should ensure they advance to the semi-final of the competition with a few points to spare.
