Armagh GAA Club Championship draws take place tonight

The draws for the Senior, Intermediate and Junior Football Championships takes place tonight, live on the Armagh GAA Facebook page.

All three Championships will revert to an old-fashioned knockout structure for 2020.

Senior (16 teams)

Crossmaglen are the reigning champions and once again will be the team everybody wants to avoid in the opening round.

County finalists from 2018 and 2019 Ballymacnab and last season’s league winners look to pose the biggest threat to Crossmaglen’s title while the Harps will also be knocking on the door.

Cullyhanna may have been relegated to Division 1B last year, but still offer plenty of quality to trouble any opposition.

2019 semi-finalists Granemore won four of their five Championship games last season and will hope to push on while Pearse Ogs will have similar ambitions.

The likes of Madden, Silverbridge, and Clann Eireann can raise their game on any given day while Dromintee and Killeavy are stiff opposition.

Newly promoted sides Mullaghbawn and Grange will hope to get a first round win under their belts early on as will Annaghmore and St Peter’s.

Senior (16 teams)

Clan na Gael will once again be pushing for an Intermediate title while last year’s beaten finalists Shane O’Neill’s will want to go one step further in 2020.

Sarsfields where relegated from the Senior division in 2019 and will hope to bounce straight back up, likewise for Culloville.

Newly promoted team Clonmore and Collegeland will want to display their talents, as will the likes of Keady, Carrickcruppen, Tullysaran and Tir na nOg.

Whitecross can still pose trouble for any side as can St Paul’s and last year’s last four contenders Wolfe Tones.

An Port Mor, Ballyhegan and Middletown will look to secure an early victory and push on to the latter stages of the competition.

Junior (13 teams)

Several teams will feel they can challenge for the Junior Championship with no clear favourite standing out above the rest.

Belleek finished second only to Clonmore in last season’s league campaign while Derrynoose reached the decider.

Forkhill are strong contenders as are Crossmaglen II and Eire Og, who were relegated from the Intermediate Championship last year.

Dorsey reached the last four in 2019 while Clady and Corrinshego will hope to remain in the competition for as long as possible.

Lissummon, Killeavy II, Newtown, O’Hanlon’s and Mullabrack will all want a favourable first round draw to get off the mark.
