Donegal Masters host Leitrim

Donegal over 40s are back in action next Wednesday when they face Leitrim in the Colaiste Ailigh School grounds, Letterkenny. (Throw-in 7.30pm)

Wednesday night’s game will be Donegal’s second on their return to Masters football for the first time in a number of years.

The team is managed by highly successful Kilcar manager, John McNulty and they defeated Antrim 2-13 to 0-7 in the first round in Killyclogher, Tyrone.

Gerard McGrenra and Eddie Gallagher scored the goals, both in the first half, to help Donegal to a comfortable 12 point victory over the Saffrons.

“We have been training once a week since the end of April and it was good to get off to a winning start,” said John McNulty.

“We have trained at the Colaiste Ailigh Grounds in Letterkenny and really we have received great support all round since we started out.

“Abbott Ireland in Donegal Town have sponsored a set of jerseys and we have also received generous sponsorship from the Warehouse, Letterkenny.”

Monaghan, Cavan and Tyrone along with Antrim and Leitrim are the other teams in the Donegal group.

They all play each other once and the two top teams qualify for the semi-finals.
