Our challenge match season is set to be a bit of a short one this year, with the only fixture in the diary coming in the form of a trip to Brewster Park, Enniskillen, this coming Saturday for a match against Fermanagh.
We haven’t seen much of the Erne County in recent years – our last competitive fixture against them took place up in Clones in March 2007, when this site was but a pup (that wasn’t the only doggie business that day) – but the memory of that All-Ireland semi-final tussle between the counties back in 2004 is, I’d say, still clear enough for most people. Need a reminder? Go on, then – here are highlights of the drawn game and here are highlights of the replay.
I’ve no idea what team we’ll field on Saturday what with all the walking wounded we have at the minute (Colm Boyle is the latest casualty I’m hearing about but I don’t know what his prognosis is) and I don’t know what time throw-in is at either. Not much help, I am?
I do, though, know that Saturday’s match is in aid of an extremely worthy cause – full details on why this fixture is being billed as ‘Playing for Sam’ are available here.
UPDATE/CORRECTION: The match is on this Saturday, not Sunday and throw-in is 6pm at Brewster Park. Thanks to Mayo Mick for sorting this out.
