Ahead of the upcoming league campaign, we’ve taken a look at the ins and outs of the teams competing in Division 2B.
The MacIomhair brothers, Ciaran and Oisin, have returned to the fold, as has former Armagh keeper Matthew McNiece.
Tomas McCormack is currently part of the county setup, so may not be available for Annaghmore in the league.
Sean McCreesh was the top scorer of the Intermediate Championship last year, hitting 0-26 in three games and he’s back for another year.
Callum O’Neill has returned from injury as well, so Belleek should have their full hands available for the league.
Crossmaglen IIs competed well in Division 2B last year following their promotion from Junior football in 2021.
Paul McKeown is part of the management team while Ryan Duffy remains a key player for the Rangers.
Peter McKearney and Pearse Lennon have gone to Australia while Dylan Mone is off to the USA on a soccer scholarship.
Paddy McGrane and Fintan Corvan have both retired. Derrynoose do have Aaron Fox and Oisin McNally back in the team.
2020 Junior Championship winners Forkhill secured their spot in Division 2B last season and will hope to do the same in 2023.
They’ll have to do it without roaming wing half back Oisin Flynn, who is off to Canada for the year.
Keady will be without a number of key players this season. Midfielder Dylan McKenna has relocated to Australia.
Forwards Conor Hughes and Sean McCabe are others that won’t be available for selection this year.
Middletown will have to plan without Dean Gaffney for the year ahead as he has gone travelling.
The talented hurler has been a huge miss for the Armagh hurlers this season and will be a loss for Middletown as well.
Mark Shields is out injured for the year and will be a massive miss for both Armagh and Whitecross.
Cathal McSherry is back into the squad however and he’ll offer a scoring threat in the Whitecross attack.
