Derrylaughan Curtain Raiser to Coalisland
Tyrone senior and intermediate champions Coalisland and Derrylaughan will both feature in The Brewster Park double header scheduled for Sunday November 14th. The Ulster Council announced the Enniskillen pitch as their chosen venue for these games and the Tyrone clubs are sure to bring large support with them for their semi final clashes.
Derrylaughan will be first up as they take on Monaghan champions Doohamlet at 12:30. Both teams had convincing five point wins in their quarter final victories with the Monaghan men defeating the Armagh champions Sarsfields while Derrylaughan’s game took twenty minutes of extra time to find a winner against Drumalee.
Coalisland will then face Glenties the Donegal champions who have already played two very competitive fixtures in this year’s Ulster Club series. Cathal Corey’s team were far from convincing in their county final win but produced some excellent football to defeat the Cavan and Monaghan champions in their preliminary and first round games.
Glenties will be many people’s favourites to progress to the Club Final itself but that won’t bother Damien O’Hagan’s men who have worn the mantle of underdog more than well this season. The Fianna will be hoping to have star wing half Patrick O’Farrell back from injury for this one and will be only too well aware of the prize that lies ahead.
