Annaduff and Glencar Manorhamilton meet in the Division 1 League Final this Saturday at 3pm in Ballinamore. Glencar Manor topped Division 1 on 18 points (9 wins/2 defeats) and Annaduff finished 2nd on 15 points (7 wins/3 defeats/1 draw). When the teams met in the league on Friday 8th October the game was played under lights in Cloone and Manor emerged victorious on a scoreline of 1-8 to 1-12. Manor were crowned Senior Champions back in September and Annaduff lost out to St Marys in the semi finals.
Annaduff have made steady progress in 2010 under the management of Michael Moyles and will relish the prospect of defeating the County Champions in the League decider. Manor are going for the League and Championship Double again this year having succeeded last year for the first time and Annaduff last won the League and Championship Double in their glory year of 2004.
Manor come into this game on the back of an agonising defeat in a high-intensity game in the Connacht Club Senior Championship last weekend. Annaduff were interesting observers at this game and will no doubt have looked for possible weaknesses to exploit. It will be interesting to see if Manor can recover from this defeat and Annaduff are more than capable of testing the strength of the champions.
This is the last league final to be decided for 2010 and we expect a high quality game in Ballinamore.
