The semi-finals of the Bradys Skoda Regional Football Championship take place on Wednesday evening with the two games forming a double header in Dunganny.
Boyne Valley are a much changed outfit from the panel that claimed glory in this competition twelve months ago but have been most impressive in the group stages under the stewardship of John McCarthy and will come into Wednesday’s game high on confidence. Standing in their way is a Lough Crew side that have bounced back impressively from their opening round loss to Moyfenragh when defeating Blackwater in Round 2 before accounting for An Tuascairt in a fine display last week. Will the defending champions progress to Sunday’s final or will they be downed by a fancied Lough Crew side?
The second semi-final sees Moyfenragh and Bru na Boinne meet at 20:00. Moyfenragh weren’t on many peoples lips at the outset of the competition but have been very impressive to date with three wins from three games under the guidance of Tom Hanley. Danny Dixon and Sean Coloe are two players to have caught the eye thus far and they will need to be at their best once more. Standing in their way are the side managed by the new St. Colmcille’s manager Niall Ronan, Bru na Boinne. They have won two and drawn one of their three games, losing out on top spot in the group by virtue of score difference. Conor Harford and Alan Bowden are likely to provide a youthful midfield while Robin Clarke will anchor the defence from centre back.
