D – Day for Cavan and Tyrone at both U20 and Senior level

All eyes will be on St Tiernachs park Clones tomorrow (Saturday) for a double header of action involving both Cavan and Tyrone.

The U20’s of both counties will get the action underway at 2:45 when they meet in the Ulster semi final.

Tyrone have reached this stage of the competition after their victory over Down while Cavan accounted for Monaghan.

Covering that game for us was Damien Donohoe and during the course of it he remarked the speed of Cavan’s counter attack was a major contributor to their victory

Throw in at 2:45

Following that game, the seniors of both counties will meet in round 4 of the qualifiers with the winner set to enter the super 8’s.

Tyrone have 2 qualifying games under their belt having accounted for Longford and Kildare following their Ulster semi final loss to Donegal.
