Leinster Senior League v Connacht FA at Dry Arch Park
Ulster Senior League v Munster Senior League at Diamond Park, Ballyare
Tonight sees the opening fixtures of this years FAI Inter-Provincial as the cream of the crop from the Leinster, Munster, Ulster Senior Leagues and the Connacht FA take each other on in a bit to capture the Michael Ward Trophy.
Defending champions Leinster open their tournament against Connacht while hosts Ulster take on Munster. Ulster haven’t won the tournament since 2014 and coach Anthony Gorman believes they have a good chance to do it this time around.
“We have a lot of experience in the squad and a lot of senior experience,” Gorman said.
“There is a pride in the players to perform. It’s an honour for the players to be selected for this squad. They have proved themselves to be the best players in the county.”
“The expectation is on the home team to perform. Home advantage should always be taken. It’s a tournament we’re all looking forward to and we can’t wait to get started.”
