The season may be in it’s death throes now but Buccaneers still have some key fixtures this weekend. The Senior side travel to Bruff on Saturday for their final Ulster Bank League Division 1B match in this campaign, kick off 2.30 p.m. Bruff overcame Buccs at Killballyowen Park in the corresponding game last year to survive in Division 1B but, alas, there can be no reprieve for the hospitable Co. Limerick club on this occasion as they are doomed to relegation along with Ballymena. However, the small club can reflect on pride on their accomplishments in the recent few seasons including winning the Bateman All-Ireland Cup. Buccs will be depleted for this encounter with a handful of regulars sure to be involved with Connacht Eagles who, ironically, play in Dubarry Park on Saturday. On paper, Buccs should still have enough enterprise and potential to prevail but they will need to be more focussed and co-ordinated than they were away to Ballynahinch last weekend. Nevertheless, I am counting on Buccaneers to deliver and finish on a high.
BUCCANEERS and CORINTHIANS will battle it out for the Connacht U-19 Cup trophy when the clubs go head to head in Sunday week's final in Galway Sportsground, kick off 1 p.m.
BUCCANEERS THIRDS take on Our Lady’s Boys Club in the semi-final of the Ard-Na-Cregg Cup in Galway Sportsground on Sunday week, April 28th, kick off 3 p.m. With Tuam unable to field in the semi-final, Buccs got a walkover (and perhaps a welcome rest following their last kick league final defeat the previous weekend).
