Cavan Ladies Championship

Cavan Ladies Championship
Junior Championship 2006

This weekend sees the 2006 Cavan junior championship
commence with the preliminary stages on Friday evening and Sunday

Last years finalists Killinkere kick off their campaign with a home
game against newcomers Shannon Gaels. Killinkere will be hoping to
go one better this year and claim the top honour and will be relying
on players like Sinead Denning, Emer McGovern and Maria Murphy. They
will be favourites to overcome the western team and progress to the
next round. One of the big ties of the round is the meeting of Cuchullains
and Arva. Arva have been going well in the adult league and will be
hoping to strongly challenge for a place in the quarter final. However
Cuchullains cannot be discounted. They have had a poor run in the

this year and will be looking to make amends for the poor results
and progress to the next round. An intriguing battle is forecasted
and a close fought contest is predicted.

Cootehill take on Killygarry in a match where Killygarry should progress.
Cootehill are a team not to be taken for granted but will be up against
it to get a win here. Killygarry are one of the biggest clubs in Cavan
and this year have some newcomers that on form will be hard stopped.
They are strong favourites to go well in the competition this year.

Knockbride B will face stiff opposition against St. Finbarrs in their
opening round. St. Finbarrs have been building at underage in

recent years and remain one of the dark horses in this year’s championship.
Current form dictates a win for them but Knockbride are capable of
causing an upset in this opening round. One of the strongest teams
in the championship this year is Gowna. They come up against the Cavan
town side Drumalee. Drumalee are a relative new club to the ladies
football scene. They will have their work cut out to grab a win here.

Gowna will be relying on the Lynch and Fitzpatrick sisters amongst
others, and whilst having had disappointing form in previous

championships they remain one of the strongest teams in the competition.


They final game sees Killeshandra take on Laragh. These two teams
have already met in the league earlier this year with Laragh

coming out on top. But the championship is a different competition
and no result can be a guaranteed. Laragh will be aiming for a win
but Killeshandra will have other things on their mind and loosing
will not be one of them.

Training will take place this Sunday morning on the back pitch in
Kingspan Breffni Park at 11:00. Any player involved with their club
