Cargin – Lamh Dhearg Match Prediction | 06-10-2019 10:30

Under the watchful eye of former player Paddy Nugent they would appear to have closed the gap that existed between the Whiterock road side and their country cousins but the question is, have they narrowed it enough?. Johns have looked a much improved side this term and are bearing the fruits of two excellent U21 Championship winning side from a couple of seasons ago. St.

And so this trilogy has come to an end, with no doubt one of the highlights being the call made by the Antrim chairman Ciaran McCavana to halt the free-kicks shoot out in game number two. Lmh Dhearg ran out 2-08 to 0-09 winners in Ballymena on Monday evening, with Paddy Cunningham bagging 2-04 in a man of the match performance.

However, they have pulled together with an in-house management team and the transition has been seamless although they may be without their most creative forward, Christopher 'Sammy' Bradley for this one after he limped off against Magherafelt in the previous game. Going for their fifth consecutive Derry title, Slaughtneil have had to absorb a couple of hard blows this season, not least losing their manager Terence McWilliams, who didn't last long on the side of Carn Togher.

St Teresas had caused upset a few years earlierwhen they ousted the Johnnies in a first round shock but there was to be norepeat performance in this one as the Whiterock road men dominated from theoutset and had plenty in hand, easing into the semi-final on a 3-14 to 0-09winning scoreline. Thethird quarter final tie involved city rivals as St Johns lined out against theSt Teresas at Sarsfields.

Inthe event those who had travelled in anticipation of a classic were to bedisappointed as the fear of losing seemed to inhibit both sides in a lowscoring final. A late Michael McCann point, exquisite in delivery from a youngman of whom his manager, Damien Cassidy has named as his Rolls Royce ensuring a0-05 to 0-04 win for Cargin.

Cargin will start this one as favourites as they make their bid for a first ever three-in-a-row and if they can reproduce their best form then they will take some beating. Gerard McCann and John Carron look the likely mid-field pairing and in attack Michael and Tomas McCann and Ciaran Close are excellent forwards. John McNabb is an excellent keeper and Marty Kane, Justin Crozier, James Laverty and Tony Scullion are experienced and talented defenders.
