Armagh Minors back in action against Cavan

After an opening day win over Antrim, the Armagh Minors can make it two from two this weekend against Cavan.

Aidan O’Rourke’s side make the journey to Kingspan Breffni Park for round two of the Ulster Minor Championship.

Armagh got off to a great start in a blustery Crossmaglen two weeks ago, defeating Antrim by 13-points.

Caomh Agnew along with midfielder Daithi O’Callaghan both rattled the net in their 2-9 to 0-2 victory.

It came just one seven days after Armagh saw off rivals Tyrone in the Ulster League Shield final by six-points.

So, the Orchard youngsters head into Saturday’s clash in good form and will look to keep their momentum going.

Gavin O’Rourke missed out the last day against Antrim but should be back in the starting line-up this week.

Diarmuid O’Rourke has been performing well in the half back line. Jack Loughran and O’Callaghan have formed a solid midfield pairing.

Up front, there are a number of talented players that are well fit to carry the scoring burden on any given day.

Agnew is the playmaker at centre half forward but well fit to kick a score, as are James McCooe and Keelan McEntee.

Shea Loughran kicked 0-4 in round one while Culloville duo Aaron Garvey and Eoin Duffy know where the posts are.

Fionn O Tuathail didn’t get on the scoresheet the last day out but is a key cog of that attacking unit.

While Armagh are at the top of Group B, Cavan are joint bottom with Antrim having lost their first round.

Reigning Ulster and All-Ireland champions Derry saw off the Breffni Blues with three-points to spare.

Cavan will be keen to open their account this weekend, but Armagh have enough to keep their winning form going.
