Belleek vs Dorsey Preview

A repeat of the 2020 quarter final, in which Belleek won handsomely in the end, with ten-points to spare.

Sean McCreesh and Callum O’Neill rattled home goals as they comfortably saw out a 2-15 to 1-8 victory.

Dorsey’s season ended that day, while Belleek went on to the county final. They lost out to Forkhill after a replay and extra time.

No doubt the hurt of that day is still driving the team on and they are taking no prisoners this year.

Brilliant Belleek form

The hammered both Mullabrack and Lissummon on their way to the last four and are expected to continue their journey this weekend.

There’s no doubt they are the favourites to reach the final stage of the competition once again.

Have Dorsey done enough this season to show they have closed the gap? Their most recent league meeting would suggest otherwise.

Belleek made the short trip to face their neighbours in August, and ran out handy winners, 2-18 to 0-7.

Dorsey’s main men

Dorsey have shown spells of what they can do in their championship campaign. That will surely give them some confidence.

They edged past Thomas Davis in a rip-roaring contest before seeing off Redmond O’Hanlon’s the last day out.

Aidan Mackin is the main man up top, and Belleek will want to halt his influence on the game.

Conor Moley and Martin Hearty form a fine midfield pairing that will give Lorcan Quinn and Stephen Finnegan their fill of it.

It’s the Belleek forward line that will cause the Dorsey management the most headaches. Several players need tied down to give Seamus Loughran’s men a chance.

Drew McVerry, Sean McCreesh and the McParland’s, James and Mark are all scoring forwards with an eye for goal.

Add in the driving runs from deep by Callum O’Neill and it’s hard to see anything other than a Belleek victory.
