John the Baptist face Thurles CBS this Wednesday in Dundrum with a place in the Harty Cup Semi-Final up for grabs. JTBCS are yet to win the competition while their opponents have eight titles to their name.
However, JTBCS will come into the game as favourites with a 100% record thus far in the competition with wins over Blackwater Community School Lismore and Our Lady’s Secondary School Templemore.
The hospital based school will look to the likes of Dylan O’Shea, Mark Quinlan and Ryan Tobin to spearhead their assault on the Tipperary school.
O’Shea has been scorer in chief for the side operating at either centre-forward or on the edge of the square. Quinlan is positioned at full back. Tobin’s versatility has seen him pop up in midfield as well as in the forward line.
Each of the above were key member of the Garryspillane team who reigned supreme in the Premier Intermediate Championship and Minor Premier Championship in 2018.
Eoin O’Mahony and Bryan Heavey were part of the Limerick Minor squad last year and were also key figures in the minor club victory.
The winner of the game will face either CBC or Nenagh CBS in the last 4.
