Garrycastle face a tough test when they take on Kildare champions Athy in Newbridge on Sunday. Athy can be described as an up and coming team with as many as nine of their starting team under 21. Having reached the provincial decider in 2009 and the semi-final last year, Anthony Cunningham’s men have a definite edge in terms of experience and at this stage of this particular competition that could prove crucial to the outcome.
Garrycastle sent out a firm warning last weekend that they are serious contenders for Leinster club glory with an eye-catching 14 point win over a disappointing Longford Slashers side. While manager Anthony Cunningham will be happy that his side bagged an impressive 4-11, he would probably have preferred a sterner test for his charges. Slashers looked like a side which had regressed since they collected their second Longford title in a row nine weeks ago and a long way off the side that ran Garrycastle to a point in the corresponding fixture last year.
Leinster club SFC quarter-final
Garrycastle collected the Flanagan Cup for the sixth time in the club’s history after a commanding second-half performance in a rain-soaked Cusack Park last Sunday. In doing so they completed a historic three-in-a-row and dashed Shamrock’s hopes of collecting silverware for the second year running.
Reigning champions Garrycastle look all set to make it three-in-a-row when they take on Mullingar Shamrocks in the county decider this Sunday. In a repeat of last year’s final Anthony Cunningham’s men will again be warm favourites to oblige and on all known form it’s difficult to see an upset here.
Westmeath SFC final (Sunday 3.30pm, Cusack Park)
Reigning champions Garrycastle booked their place in the last four of this year’s competition at the expense of close neighbours Athlone in Hogan Park Moate on Saturday evening last.
Hogan Park, Moate, is the place to be this Saturday evening at 6.30pm as Athlone and Garrycastle lock horns for the right to progress to the last four. Garrycastle, the reigning champions, will not want to relinquish their title easily, least of all to their neighbours Athlone.
