Hurlers & Footballers – Qtr final action

Leitrim hurlers take part in the quarter finals of the Nicky Rackard cup in Parnell Park tomorrow afternoon at 3pm.  This is the teams first time to make it to this stage in the competition and they face very stiff competition against Fingal. Leitrim dual player James Glancy (St. Marys) will lineout with the hurlers. 

Meanwhile at the otherside of the country Leitrim footballers face Clare tomorrow in the Tommy Murphy Cup quarter final in Ennis at 7pm with a depleted squad.  The team travel to this game without the services of John McKeon, Michael McGuinness, Niall Murray  and David McHugh who are all out due to injury.  Gary McCloskey is working in London while Noel Gill, Stephen Feeney and David OConnor are also unavailable due to travel and holiday.  Gary Reynolds is coming back from injury and will be subject to a fitness test.  The team will not be announced until tomorrow evening. 

Best of luck to all concerned.
