Cork County Minor Board Preview

The coming week sees the Co Minor Championships continue with the meeting of Castlehaven and Fermoy meet in Kilmurry for a place in round three of the Co Premier 1 Minor Football Championship on Monday evening. Both these sides had a disappointing start to their campaign when Castlehaven lost out to St Michaels while Fermoy suffered a similar fate to Na Piarsaigh. As this is their last chance of advancement you can be sure that this time out both sides will put in a much more stern performance ensuring a close contest with very little dividing the sides at the final whistle.

In the Co Minor “A” Regional Football Championship it is down to the Qtr/Final stage with Ballinhassig meeting St Michaels on Tuesday evening in Shanbally. In their opening round Ballinhassig look impressive in defeating Na Piarsaigh’s second string while likewise St Michael’s second string looked equally adapt in dealing with the challenge of Brian Dillons. Based on league results the form would favour Ballinhassig but championship is a different kettle of fish and seeing St Michaels perform on their last outing it will take a very good side to halt their progress.

On the same evening Ballinascarthy and Inniscarra cross camans in Newcestown for a place in the Semi-Finals of the Co Minor “A” Regional Hurling Championship. In their opening round Ballinascarthy had a fine victory over Millstreet while Inniscarra saw off the challenge of Kinsale but in the league the “Mid-Cork” side had five points to spare over their opponents and this could prove to be an indicator, However Ballinascarthy have shown some good form of late and they will be all out to reverse that result on this occasion and in the process keep their championship hopes in tact.
