Drumoghill FC have been homeless all season as their home pitch at the Moss is undergoing a facelift.
However, Michael Lynch’s team have made light work of the inconvenience having been housed at Station Road in St Johnston, Letterkenny Aura Centre and Diamond Park in Ballyare.
This Sunday, despite it being their home fixture, Drumoghill are quite content to take on Bonagee United at Dry Arch Park, kick-off 2pm.
“We’ve known all week that we didn’t need to depends on anyone,” Lynch, who is in his second season in charge of the club, said this week. “We were lucky enough to get the result last weekend.”
The result Lynch refers to is the 2-1 victory over Keadue Rovers when Richie Moore struck in injury time to seal the three points.
Players like goalkeeper Greg Regan, David O’Carroll, Moore and O’Donnell have been the driving forces this season.”
“We’ve had a good enough season all ‘round,” Lynch continues. “From the start of the season the priority was promotion. It’s a decent league with the likes of Kerrykeel, Castlefin and Cappry.
“It was a very strong and competitive league. It’s been awkward enough for us with having no pitch but we’re happy enough with Bonagee at the weekend.
“They’ve a fine pitch and it’s the type of place you enjoy playing on.
“Our own pitch should be ready by the summer and it’s coming on well there. It’ll be lovely to get back there an it would be nice to get there as champions.”
Drumoghill were relegated in 2010 by a single goal when Kilmarennan Celtic clinched their league title. They’ve not won a league since 1996.
“We dropped points about two weeks ago against Kerrykeel and it looked as though the best we would get then would be promotion.
“Sunday is a game we’re looking forward to and we’re not going to have an entrance free so everyone is welcome.”
