THE DONEGAL UNDER-21 Football Championship final between St Eunan’s and Kilcar has been rescheduled for this Friday night, January 8, at 8.15pm in Sean MacCumhaill Park.
On each of the last two Wednesday nights, the game has fallen foul of the weather, but the Donegal Competitions Controls Committee (CCC) has pencilled it in for this Friday night again.
The game was originally fixed for December 23rd, but the stormy forecast led to its postponement.
On Wedensday of last week, the game was again called off with Pearse Memorial Park in Ardara, where it had been due to be played, feeling the effects of Storm Frank.
The competition has been a protracted one with St Eunan’s having had their semi-final with Aodh Ruadh called off three times before going ahead on December 19, when Eunan’s won 1-11 to 1-6.
Jordan O’Dowd was sent off, but Barry McGeehin’s late goal and five points from Michael Miller steered them home.
It’s eight weeks since Kilcar defeated Ardara 2-7 to 1-3 in their semi-final in November, when goals by Ryan McHugh and Chris Doogan secured a win at Pairc na nGael in Glencolmcille.
The final is a repeat of last year’s decider, which was won by St Eunan’s.
With the county under-21 and senior teams playing on Saturday and Sunday, the CCC have put the game in on Friday night.
