Cavan hoping to get a win in England

Cavan’s bid for a first win since their return to senior inter-county competitive hurling after disbanding in 2011 continues when they travel to Manchester to face Lancashire.

Cavan have lost to Warwickshire, Leitrim and Sligo so far since returning to the Lory Meagher, while opponents Lancashire got their first win of the competition to date against Fermanagh a fortnight ago, either sides of defeats against Sligo and Leitrim; the latter by the narrowest of margins.

Cavan’s chances were hurt by red cards for Seán Keating and Anthony Sheridan last week. They will need Kevin Conneely and Diarmuid Cahill to lead their challenge against a Lancashire side powered by the tournament’s top scorer Ronan Crowley, who has 2-31 to his name.

Warwickshire will bid for a fourth consecutive win in the Lory Meagher Cup when they welcome Leitrim to Páirc na hÉireann and Sligo host Fermanagh.

Northern Sound will have updates on the Cavan and Leitrim games throughout the afternoon.
