Drom Broadford and Newcastlewest lock horns in County League Football Final

Drom Broadford and Newcastlewest look to return to winning ways in County League Football Final.

Matt O’Callaghan chats to Sporting Limerick about the upcoming league final and what we can expect from both teams. The winners of the previous two County Leagues meet this Saturday in Coolyrue to determine the 2017 Limerick Senior League Champions.

Newcastle West and Drom Broadford meet in the inal for the second consecutive year this Saturday. Last year NCW ran out 2-5 to 0-5 winners to clinch the title while the previous year Drom beat Na Piarsaigh on Christmas Eve to win the Senior League.

This game is wedged in before the final round of group games in the Limerick SFC where both sides have a good chance of progressing to the knockout stages of the competition. Last weekend Newcastle were somewhat surprisingly turned over by Oola whilst Drom-Broadford were also beaten, by Fr Caseys. O’Callaghan reckons both teams will relish the opportunity to get back to winning ways.

“Both sides will really want a pick me up after losing in the county championship at the weekend”

“It fills in between the penultimate and the final round, it fills in neatly. I suspect both camps will be delighted to have the opportunity to airbrush out the defeat of last weekend and try and get back to winning ways and get a boost.”

Although the League title is not the most prestigious trophy in Limerick, the timing of the game will ensure that a intense and quality match will be seen on Saturday. Both sides will know that they have a chance to redeem the loss from the previous week as we head towards the knockout stages of the Limerick SFC.

“Both clubs have work to do in the final round.”

“Drom have to beat the leaders and champions Monaleen. Newcastle have to beat their neighbours and bogey team St Kierans in the final round.”

There is a dynamic between Newcastle West and Drom-Broadford.. There is history between these two clubs, history of producing exciting and intense games. I’m sure Saturday will be no different.
