Up the Burt boys

The latest instalment of our sport podcast is now live, where Damian, Gerard and Caoimhinn cast their eye over the local scene.

 

Burt are celebrating a first ever Intermediate championship win following their 2-11 to 1-12 extra time win over Milford last Saturday, and there’s plenty of discussion on what it means for a club more renowned for its record in hurling rather than football.

And we’re talking soccer too.

Glengad FC inflicted a first defeat of the season on league leaders Clonmany, and that on the back of a comprehensive win over Buncrana Hearts in the league cup.

Are they on an unstoppable march towards a third successive league title?
