TYRONE SENIOR CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND ONE
DUNGANNON V TRILLICK
Thursday, Omagh, 7.30pm
DUNGANNON claimed an unforgettable victory over Trillick in the 2020 final after penalties. 2015 and 2019 champions Trillick haven’t gone anywhere and this is a block-buster way to throw-in the Tyrone senior championship.
GREENCASTLE V DONAGHMORE
Friday, Omagh, 6.45pm
THESE two teams fared similarly well in Division One, so it’s hard to pick a winner. Donaghmore have brilliant players at youth level, but it’ll take a few years for that to filter through. Greencastle have steel in their ranks and might edge this one by a point or two.
DROMORE V KILLYCLOGHER
Friday, Omagh, 8.15pm
ANOTHER incredibly tough one to call. Killyclogher have been in flying form all season and reached the league final, but there could be a big performance from reigning champions Dromore.
ARDBOE V OMAGH
Saturday, Pomeroy, 1.30pm
AGAIN, these are two evenly matched teams. Omagh had a stellar league campaign but the loss of Connor O’Donnell to injury is a huge blow. We’ll lean towards Ardboe on that basis.
MOY V ERRIGAL CIARAN
Saturday, Galbally, 4pm
THE MOY face an upcoming relegation play-off against Clonoe, but they’d still like to put in a decent showing against Errigal Ciaran. Errigal are red hot favourites, but it’ll be interesting to see where injured forward Ruairi Canavan makes a return.
Verdict: Errigal Ciaran
MOORTOWN V CLONOE
Sunday, Edendork, 1.30
MOORTOWN just about stayed up in their return to Division One football, and have proved a very tough team to beat. Clonoe seem to be past their best, but they’re could be a kick in them. We’ll still go for the Loughshore men.
LOUGHMACRORY V DERRYLAUGHAN
Sunday, Edendork, 3.30pm
LOUGHMACRORY have proven themselves a very resilient outfit and should secure their second championship victory over Derrylaughan in as many years. Derrylaughan have a small pick and were relegated this season.
CARRICKMORE V COALISLAND
Monday, Omagh, 7.30pm
THESE two teams met in a memorable quarter-final clash last season. Comeback kings Coalisland won out on that occasion, but Carrickmore have been building over recent seasons and will desperately want to win this one.
