The spectre of a draw in Sunday Gormley uPVC Senior Football Championship Final between Scotstown and Latton looms large on the horizion but Noel Marron (Ballybay boss) and David Reilly (Magheracloone) think an outright decision will be the outcome in Inniskeen. by KEVIN CARNEY
It’ll be very close but if I had to call it, I would say Scotstown to win,” Donaghmoyne native Marron told the Standard this week. “We were beaten by Latton (1-8 to 1-9) in the semi-final, but I think they probably know themselves that that performance isn’t likely to be good enough to beat Scotstown.
“The experience a lot of the Latton lads have of winning two senior championship titles will stand to them though and it’ll almost certainly go right down to the wire and their superior experience could make a big difference in a tight, final five minutes.
“I can see the final being a very cagey, technical match and the team that are the most clinical up front should come through.
“Scotstown will want to get quick ball into Kieran Hughes because since his comeback from injury he’s been on fire and is probably the player of the championship so far.
“Overall, Scotstown seem to me like they have the stronger bench and I think subs on Sunday could make an impact especially if the conditions and the weather aren’t good ’cause they’ll take a lot out of the players even though they’re gonna go into the match in peak condition.”
