Thomas Davis vs Dorsey Preview

These sides kick off their championship campaigns tomorrow as part of a double-header in Crossmaglen.

This is probably the tightest to call of all the Junior first round games and both sides are confident of winning the game.

The split in the league separated the two clubs, while four positions is the real difference in the Junior table.

Dorsey enjoyed the better league campaign, winning 8 of their 18 outings. Thomas Davis picked up 5 wins from 17 games.

Captain Martin Hearty forms a solid centerfield pairing with Conor Moley while Seamus Hearty protects the defensive square.

Gary Mackin and Eugene Casey could prove the match winners and will be the go-to men in the forward line.

Thomas Davis experienced a poor 2020 championship, crashing out in the first round to Newtown after penalties.

They’ll hope to bounce back this season and will look to their inspirational leader David Murphy to guide them through.

Murphy, the captain and free taker, is their most reliable score-getter and pulls the strings from centre half forward.

Ryan McWilliams is a powerful presence in the middle of the field and lines up alongside Keynois Crozier.

Turlough Kane and Ronan Gallen will look to hold the fort at the back while they can also call upon 2017 All-Star Jordan King.

This could prove an extremely tough match up, but Dorsey are just about getting the nod to come through.
