Scotstown to face Omagh in Ulster Under-21 Championship

December 30th, 2011

Scotstown have been drawn against Tyrone champions Omagh in the quarter-finals of the Ulster Under-21 Club Football Championship. Scotstown, who lost to Monaghan Harps in the 2010 final, were back in the Monaghan Under-21 decider this year, where they beat Aughnamullen by 4-11 to 1-11, inspired by a virtuoso substitute performance by Kieran Hughes. Scotstown, who can call on other players who featured in their seniors’ run to the county final, such as Rory Beggan, Damien McArdle, Shane Carey, Orin Heaphey, Stephen Sherry and Conor Caulfield, will be looking to improve Monaghan clubs’ underwhelming record in the competition, which is run by Antrim club Creggan. The north-Monaghan side reached the 2008 Ulster MFC Club Final, only to suffer a one-point defeat against Ballinderry. Omagh, whose main men include Ronan and Shane O’Neill and Stephen Mullan, defeated Donaghmore by 0-15 to 1-5 in the Tyrone final and have experience of this tournament, as only Burren stood in their way two years ago. The game is due to take place on the third week of January.
