Longford One Step from Rackard Semi-Finals

Longford take on Armagh in Glennon Brothers Pearse Park at one o’clock on Saturday in the Nicky Rackard Cup.

Victory for Longford would put them into the semi-finals of the competition.

In Longfords last game the midlands side came from nine points down at half-time to beat Monaghan.


Longford manager Derek Frehill says his sides despite being underdogs are confident in getting a good result.

The Galway man in his first year in charge has been previewing the game with Kevin McDermott and looking back on their successful season so far-including the incredible comeback against Monaghan.
