The Ulster Football Championship Draw have been announced for the upcoming 2020 season. Can current champions Donegal defend their crown?
Current Ulster champions Donegal will begin the defence of their title with a semi-final game against Tyrone. Declan Bonner’s team blew past Cavan in last years Ulster Final on a 1-24 to 2-16 scoreline in Clones.
The addition of Eoghan Ban Gallagher, Jamie Brennan and Odhran McFadden Ferry gave the Donegal men a different dimension to mix in with the experienced heads of Michael Murphy, Patrick McBrearty and Ryan McHugh.
They will face a Tyrone side who fell at the last hurdle in the All-Ireland series this past season.
Mickey Harte will return to the Tyrone set-up for his 16th inter-county year. The hunger and desire to continuously create a team with a winning mentality is certainly something to behold.
A team who have been criticized for their negative style of football in the past will look to prove the doubters wrong this year.
Cavan’s featured in their first provincial decider in 18 years last time out. This term they’ll have to get through a preliminary round collision with Monaghan before a possible last-eight meeting against Antrim in the Ulster Football Championship Draw. New manager Seamus McEnaney will take charge after previous experience with the Monaghan youth sides.
Antrim announced that Lenny Harbinson was ratified as Senior Football manager for the upcoming campaign, and will look to build on a disappointing season.
The Down footballers excelled throughout the Ulster championship forcing their quarter-final game with Armagh to a replay. Their opponents Fermanagh will be led by first-year coach and former Tyrone All-Ireland winner Ryan McMenamin.
The final fixture will see Derry’s newly-appointed Ryan McIver and his Derry team take on Kieran McGeeney’s Armagh.
