Glenroe are set to play Bruff in the opening round of Lyons of Limerick County Premier Intermediate Hurling Championship’s Group 2.
Glenroe and Bruff will travel to Killmallock on Friday 3rd of September to play the opening fixture of this years Limerick County Premier Intermediate Hurling Championship’s Group 2.
Glenroe manager Danny Murphy shared his thoughts about the upcoming championship with Sporting Limerick earlier this week, explaining that this years tournament will be just as mercurial as past tournaments.
“This Premier Intermediate championship is the tightest championship of them all out there, anyone can beat anyone on a given day.”Glenroe Manager Danny Murphy
After coming agonisingly close to getting a final spot last year, Glenroe fell short to Mungret in last year’s semi. Now with another season experience under the squads belt, Glenroe now know what’s required to earn a spot in this years final.
“At this point in the championship, it’s just focusing on the first match then taking it from there.”Murphy added
Captain Steven Walsh will be controlling operations on the pitch for Glenroe in the upcoming championship. Despite no corners being cut in terms of preparation, Walsh is still prepared for the unpredictable nature of the tournament.
“There’s nothing between any of the teams up there which is brilliant, there’s a great fast flowing brand of hurling that all the teams are playing up there so it’s a great division to be involved in.”
Walsh is more than familiar with Glenroe’s first opponent in the championship. Bruff and Glenroe have been exchanging blows over the past few tournaments, making their future this weekend the latest addition to their growing rivalry.
“We met them last year in the group stages as well and they got the better of us. We played them this year in the South Championship and we got one over them so there’s going to be nothing between us, so it’ll be all down to the day and who performs best.”Walsh added
Glenroe face Bruff in Kilmallock on Friday at 6.45pm.
