East Cork Championship Draws 2011

The draws for next year’s East Cork Junior championships were made at the first East Cork Board meeting of 2011 recently.

In a repeat of last year’s hurling final, Castlemartyr were drawn against near rivals Dungourney in what will be a mouth watering till following the thriller we witnessed in Killeagh last September.

Castlemartyr will probably go into the game as slight favourites following last year’s victory, but this will suit Dungourney knowing Castlemartyr have been sluggish in their opening championships games in recent years.

Either way, it is the tie of the round and will be the subject of many a conversation over the next six months.

In the football, the Reds have been drawn against Russell Rovers.

Following last year’s narrow loss in the semi final to Erin’s Own, Castlemartyr will be hoping to take confidence from this run and have a good year with the big ball.
