There will be three teams from the peninsula in championship action this weekend with Muff and Moville from Division 4 and Urris from Division 3 all getting their junior championship campaign under way.
In a change to the usual knock out format, the junior championship will now follow the lead of both the senior and intermediate championship by having two groups of five with the top two teams in each group taking their place in the semi finals.
Urris will get under way with a difficult trip to Killygordan to take on Red Hugh’s and manager Danny Kelly insists his side have the ability to go all the way in this years championship.
“Look we will be aiming to win the junior championship its as simple as that really.
“We have a few boys away at the minute but I feel that when we get them back, we will have a very good chance of going all the way,” said a confident Kelly this week when speaking to the Inishowen Independent.
Moville face what looks like a winnable game in Lifford and their manager Gerard Faulkner is simply taking one game at a time.
“Being honest we have always said that promotion would be our primary target this season and we are on course to achieve that with three games to go.
“As far as the championship is concerned we will take things one game at a time and hopefully we will have enough to get out of the group,” said Faulkner.
Muff are also on their travels at the weekend with a daunting trip to Letterkenny Gaels but manager Charlie Molloy has been delighted with the attitude of his players after a difficult start to the league.
“Look there is no getting away from the fact that we had a very poor start to the season but I have to say the boys have been brilliant.
“They have kept turning up to training and worked extremely hard and I really believe we have finally turned the corner, I cant speak highly enough of them to be honest and I see no reason why we cant have a good run in the championship,” he said.
