Race is on as Doohamlet and Innisken battle it out for Intermediate football league glory

17 December 2010 No Comments by The Northern Standard

Barring the intervention of the weather yet again or some other unforeseen circumstance this Sunday should see the conclusion of the domestic programme of matches with the final of the Streamline Coaches sponsored intermediate football league between Doohamlet and Inniskeen in Drumhowan.

This is a game that has been in the waiting for some time as it was originally fixed for November 21st but the recent inclement weather and Doohamlet’s involvement in the final of the Ulster intermediate club championship saw it put on hold in successive weekends all of which makes for a situation where it will be welcomed by the fixtures making body that the domestic programme will be completed within the calendar year.

Looking at the final in outline there are a number of ways in which the potential in this game can be assessed.

It is reasonable to suggest that it will be difficult for Doohamlet to raise their spirits following their defeat in last Sunday’s Ulster intermediate club championship final while Inniskeen would certainly be seen as the fresher team at this stage.

Against that though, they have not had any competitive matches since their semi-final while Doohamlet have come through a very tough Ulster campaign that culminated in a devastating defeat in Breffni Park on Saturday last.
