Concerns for Antrim's u-21s
A LIMITED panel and the strength of their opponents in the Ulster Championship has left the Antrim u-21 manager seriously concerned about his team’s chances of success this season.
Antrim are due to play the winners of Armagh and Fermanagh next Wednesday. The result of last night’s game was not known at the time of going to print.
“I am genuinely concerned. We were lucky to beat Armagh in last year’s final. I think we will have our work cut out with them,” said Saffron manager Johnny McIntosh.
Some might suggest that such statements are mere codology, as Antrim teams just don’t lose to Armagh. However, the manner of their preparations suggests that McIntosh’s concerns should not be taken lightly.
“U-21s are betwixt and between, we have done our best to have a few sessions but we have been hamstrung by injuries, and we have two or three boys who are going to called away on holiday,” McIntosh said.
