Oran and Tulsk contest this year’s Mulryan construction Roscommon Intermediate final with both camps playing up to the underdog tag.
“It’s no secret that our preparations has been somewhat disjointed given the injuries we have, we seem to plighted every year with injuries in this club” explained manager Billy Donnellan.
“But this year has been massive with the players we have lost, Tom Fetherson, Gareth Keenan and Paul Kenny guys of that calibre, but we have to preserve and give the young guys a chance”
“It’s a great day for the club, the parish, the schools, the long and short of it is there was 10 clubs in the championship now it’s down to two” added Donnellan.
However the Tulsk camp are refusing to bite on any suggestion that they are favourites for the game with manager Gerry Lohan
“We’ve a very young an inexperienced team so it’s a challenge for us also” added Lohan. “I wouldn’t read too much into, what they have they have and what we have, we have”.
“It’s Tulsk’s first final in five or six years and a lot of these lads have never experienced this before, whereas Oran have a lot of experience in finals.
“It’s going to be down to the day, if we perform on the day we’ll be there or there about’s if we don’t perform then that will be that.”
