Tyrone star Frank Burns is looking forward to Saturday’s double bill in Omagh as clubs from Armagh and Tyrone clash.
Burns’ Pomeroy take on St Patrick’s Cullyhanna before Trillick face Crossmaglen in the main event.
“Tyrone and Armagh in general is always spicey and there’s two great games,” said Burns. “Tyrone and Armagh games always make for good watching no matter if it’s club or county.
“Cullyhanna are strong and we’re a good team ourselves. Trillick and Crossmaglen are two top senior sides, so it’ll make for a good watch.
“We haven’t got seeing Cullyhanna yet to be honest, we were just focusing on getting out of Tyrone first.
“The Tyrone Intermediate Championship is a high level, so we never looked too far ahead. But they’ll have probably saw us because they won the weekend before we did.”
Burns captained Pomeroy to the Tyrone title as they overcame Moy by two points. “It was a tough game; the Moy are a very strong team.
“They were a senior team for years in Tyrone and we knew it was going to be tough but thankfully we got the job done. It’s great to be back in the Ulster Club Championship.
“We were in it in 2016 and it’s been a long wait to get back. We are up against very tough competition in Cullyhanna and it’s going to be a big ask for us.
“I know those boys from coming up against Armagh and they’re good players. But it’s not just them three that they have, they’re strong all over the field.
“There are boys that aren’t on the county team that play for them that could potentially be on the county team.
“They’re a senior club in Armagh. They went down and they rectified that straight away and went back up, so it’ll not be easy.”
