Drumalee face challenge to consolidate
DRUMALEE’S season in division one continues this weekend, and the team remain optimistic despite the huge task facing them.
Drumalee were promoted to division one last year, but need to finish in the top seven spots to avoid relegation, as the planned restructure will mean that division one must have less teams.
In the last round of the league, played at the end of February, Drumalee lost to Gowna 0-12 to 0-8, having won their first game against Drumgoon.
This weekend, they meet Cúchulainns, a side they met in last year’s championship, but who have won their first two games of the season, and are joint top of Division one; with Lavey, Cavan Gaels and Gowna.
Ger Shaughessy has returned this season as manager.
“We are expecting a tough game against Cúchulainns this weekend. We played them in the Championship last year, they were missing Eugene Keating as he was away in America, but he should be available now. It is a home game for us, so that will help. Hopefully we can keep our consistency.”
