Enniskillen Gaels will take on Antrim champions Cargin in the quarter final of the Ulster Minor Club Tournament at St Paul’s in Belfast on Sunday and manager Kevin Lavelle states that preparations have been going well for the game.

“The boys have been working really well and they have shown a great attitude. We’re looking forward to it at this point,” said Lavelle.

The Gaels do have a couple of niggles but Lavelle is hopeful that they will have cleared up ahead of Sunday’s clash.

“We have a few wee knocks but but we would be hopeful that they will be ok by the time the game comes round,” he added.

And he is expecting a big test on Sunday.

“Cargin are going to be a really big challenge and they have some very good players but we will concentrate more on our own game,” he said.

With Fermanagh not playing an U18 Club Championship, it is last year’s U17 champions who go on to represent the county in Ulster. The bulk of the squad also went on to win this year’s U17 Championship title while they can add in the quality of the likes of Conor Love who will be a key player in attack alongside the likes of Ross Bogue and James O’Donnell.

Lavelle stresses that they have scoring threats in attack.

“Obviously, Conor is a quality player but we have six forwards who can chip in with scores and that’s important.

“For me the big thing will be taking our chances when they come, especially as it is likely to be difficult conditions given the weather,” he said.

Cargin’s key man is midfielder Pat Shivers but Enniskillen will feel that they have strong players of their own in that sector in the likes of Oliver Hughes Jordan and Conor Murphy.

The crunch thing will then be restricting the Cargin forward line and to that end the Gaels will look to Hogan Cup winner Josh Horan, Jack Tierney and Ryan McDonnell.

“We will be looking to produce a performance and see where it takes us,” added Lavelle.
