Here are the Antrim and Fermanagh teams for the 2019 Lidl National League Division 4 Final

2019 LIDL NFL Division 4 Final – SATURDAY


Antrim v Fermanagh; St Tiernach’s Park, Clones, 2pm (S Curley, Galway) – LIVE TG4


ULSTER rivals Antrim and Fermanagh will start proceedings at St Tiernach’s Park on Saturday afternoon, when they battle it out for promotion from Division 4 of the Lidl National League.

The form guide suggests that this will be a tight battle, with both sides high on confidence following impressive semi-final wins.

Fermanagh came from 11 points behind to see off the challenge of Limerick in their semi-final, while Antrim emerged from an extra-time epic against Louth as winners.

Antrim may have finished fourth in the group standings, which pitted them against table-toppers Louth, but the pre-match underdogs showed real character in the closing minutes to force extra-time.

Cathy Carey scored a crucial late goal and the Saffrons outscored the Wee County over the course of the two extra periods to book a place in another League Final.

Promotion to Division 3 is a huge target for both of these counties, with Antrim hoping to make it third time lucky in a Division 4 Final, having lost to Limerick in 2016 and Roscommon in 2014.

Fermanagh’s last appearance in a League Final was back in 2011, when they lost out to Clare in the Division 3 decider.

The Erne County’s last League title was achieved back in 2007, when they defeated Westmeath in the third-tier Final.

Saturday’s opponents met on the opening day of the 2019 League season, when Fermanagh won a close encounter by 3-11 to 3-9.

Further victories for Fermanagh over Derry, Leitrim, Carlow and Kilkenny (w/o) ensured a safe passage to the last four of the competition, while Antrim did enough against Leitrim, Kilkenny, Limerick, Derry (draw) and Carlow to book their place in the knockout stages.

While Antrim were taking care of pre-match favourites Louth, Fermanagh came from a long way back to get the better of Limerick, and those wins will have sent belief levels soaring in both camps ahead of this crucial tie.

Both counties have named unchanged starting teams following their respective semi-final wins.
