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
It is better to nearly drown than to nearly be saved. Garrycastle footballers will well understand the meaning of this cliché following their lucky escape against Longford Slashers in Cusack Park last Sunday. Last year’s beaten provincial club champions were expected to clear the first hurdle in this year’s Leinster club campaign with a bit to spare but in the end were glad to have kept their heads above water.
Garrycastle begin their provincial club campaign with a home tie in Cusack Park on Sunday at 3.15pm. Having reached last year’s provincial decider expectations are high that the Westmeath representatives will again enjoy a protracted run in Leinster.
