BUCCS AWAY TO MONIVEA in J1 league

published:Jan  27

With both the Firsts and U-20’s having no matches this coming weekend, Buccaneers J1’s have pride of place on the fixtures list on Sunday when they travel to the Castle Grounds to take on Monivea in the Connacht Junior 1A League. Kick off is 2.30 p.m. for this joust between two teams that have little between them on the league table. Buccs are currently in third place, just one point and one place above Sunday’s opponents. Indeed when the teams met very early in the season in Athlone, Monivea came out on top by just a single point 11-10. The Pirates were not so well organised at that stage and will be optimistic that, if they can repeat their second half display against Connemara, they can fashion an away victory.
