Fingal hoping for Wild card entry

Fingal's wild card play-off tournament will take place this coming weekend. They play Instonians on Saturday at 2pm and then play Fingal on Sunday at 1.30pm in conjunction with the Club Championships qualification stage in Lisnagarvey.

The key match will see them looking to get a result in the tournament opener against Inst, looking to keep livewires Marks Gleghorne and Irwin at bay. They will have to do so without Andy Quinn who has a broken hand and are waiting on a fitness test on Keith Crawford.

Bandon, whose main threat comes from David Smyth, came third in Munster and have former underage international, Ian Hosford, between the sticks.

A win in the competition will see the side join Leinster's TRR, Pembroke, Glenanne and Monkstown in next year's inaugural All-Ireland league.
