The Armagh minor side know their fate for the upcoming season, with the league and championship fixtures announced today.
Armagh, with Brendan Hughes remaining in charge, have been drawn into Section B of the Ulster Minor League.
In Section B, they’ll face neighbours Down and Monaghan along with clashes against Antrim and Derry.
The Orchard County have two home games and two away and begin their campaign with a trip to Antrim.
Armagh host Derry, last years Ulster finalists in round two. They then head to Monaghan before finishing off the group stages with a home tie against Down.
To reach the final of the Ulster Minor League, Armagh will have to top the group. The final will consist of the two table toppers from Section A and Section B.
The league commences on Saturday 25 February, the same day the seniors travel to Kerry, and continues for the next four Saturdays.
The Ulster Minor Championship will take the form of a round robin group stages and begins on Saturday 15 April.
Armagh were once again drawn into Section B, which is made up with games against Tyrone, Antrim and Cavan.
Hughes’ side kick off their championship campaign against Antrim and will have home advantage for round one.
Round two will see Armagh take on the reigning Ulster Champions Tyrone before meeting Cavan in the final round.
Armagh will automatically qualify for the quarter finals, as will the rest of the teams in Section B.
All four move into the last eight where they meet the top four in Section A (which has five teams).
Armagh lost both their Ulster Championship matches last season, when the backdoor system was in place.
Derry proved too strong in the opening round and ran out comfortable 5-10 to 2-6 winners in the end.
The qualifier game against Monaghan was much tighter, but again Armagh suffered a defeat, losing 0-15 to 1-9 this time.
