Cork County Minor Board Preview

The coming week sees the conclusion of Round 2 of the Co Premier Minor Championships and Round I of the Co Minor “A” Regional Championships. The draw for the next phase takes place on Tuesday night next in the Rochestown Park Hotel at 9.00 pm.

In the Co Premier 1 Minor Hurling Championship Mallow and Blarney bring down the curtain on Round 2 when they clash in Mourne Abbey this evening. This should be an interesting contest between two sides that are evenly matched ensuring that in the end a lucky break either way could decide the issue. For Mallow it is a must win situation as they lost out in their opening round game to Carrigtwohill and this is their last chance of advancement so you can be sure that they will be all out to extend their season. On the other hand should Blarney lose they will have a second chance as this is their first game in the championship but they will be seeking to advance at the first time of asking.

On Monday evening the final game of round one of the Co Minor “A” Football Championship takes place in Passage between Brian Dillons and St Michaels second string. A close affair is in prospect here where Brian Dillons will be hoping to put their league form behind them and extend their run in the championship while St Michaels, whose first fifteen are already through in Premier 1, will be endeavouring to progress to the next phase of the competition.

As usual there is plenty of activity in the various leagues and with only a few rounds left places in the knock-out stages are in sight for a number of sides ensuring some exciting encounters.
