Ladies name starting line up for semi-final

Armagh are one win away from reaching their second Ulster final in as many years. They just have to get over their old rivals Tyrone this evening.

Ronan Murphy has named the same starting team that dismantled Monaghan two weeks ago.

The Orchard County were in the mood that night and were much the better team throughout.

Cracking goals from Alex Clarke and Blaithin Mackin led Armagh to a strong 2-18 to 0-10 victory.

The defence would have been happy to keep a clean sheet and will be focused on doing so in the semi-final.

Anna Carr is the number one netminder in the county and she has an experienced back line protecting her goal.

Sarah Marley and Clodagh McCambridge are exceptional defenders while Grace Ferguson was one of the stars the last day out.

The Orchard rear-guard can attack from deep as well. Lauren McConville and Tiarna Grimes both got on the scoresheet against Monaghan while Eve Lavery can also bomb forward.

Niamh Marley has been a welcomed addition to the panel, and she will once again partner Niamh Coleman in midfield.

Caroline O’Hanlon still pulls the strings from centre half forward and can help out around middle if needed.

Blaithin Mackin and Fionnuala McKenna are full of running on the wings and both know where the posts are.

The half forward line posted 1-5 in the quarter final, and Tyrone will be aware of their ability.

Aimee Mackin top scored the last day out with 0-8 while Aoife McCoy and Alex Clarke form a deadly inside line.

There’s still no place for the returning Kelly Mallon, who will be on the bench, ready to enter the fray at any time.

Shauna Grey and Catherine Marley have been added to the subs, having missed out the last day through injury.
