Masonite Championship gets underway

The 2004 Masonite Senior Football Championship kicks off this weekend. All games will be played on Saturday and Sunday evening in Cloone and Carrick-on-Shannon. Reigning Champions, St. Marys don t play in this series of games, but will get involved next weekend.

On Saturday, both Group 2 games will be played in Cloone, with Drumkeerin facing Bornacoola and Aughawillan taking on Mohill. InÓgroup 1, Cloone face St Caillins in Carrick, while the final game on Saturday will be between Carrigallen and Glenfarne/Kilty.

The heavyweights get involved on Sunday evening, with the tie of the round arguable between Melvin Gaels and Gortletteragh, both teams with strong aspirations for this year. However, both teams are languishing near the bottom of Division 1A, with only one win each so far this year. Ballinaglera v Annaduff completes the double bill in Carrick.

In Cloone, two of the favourites will be in action, with Aughavas facing Aughnasheelin, while Allen Gaels take on Sean O Heslins.
