NENAGH ORMOND v GALWEGIANS

New Ormond Park

Saturday 19th January

Kick-off @ 2.00pm

Referee: Brian McNeice

 

Nenagh Ormond will be hoping that the New Year brings with it a change in fortunes as the second half of division 2A of the All Ireland League gets underway next Saturday.

The league season resumes with a repeat of the round 9 fixtures before Christmas where Nenagh went down to bottom of the table Galwegians in Crowley Park and if Ormond are to have any chance of extricating themselves from their predicament of being in the relegation playoff spot to division 2B, they really need to getting a win from this encounter.

Nenagh had enough chances to take something from that game which was Galwegians first win of the season and are likely to come to Lisatunny in bullish mood.

The last four weeks will have given Nenagh a chance to freshen things up and refocus for the nine remaining games where avoiding relegation would appear to be their only challenge with being involved in the promotion hunt for a third straight year appearing unrealistic.

It has been a tough run for Nenagh who have lost their last three games and haven't been on the winning side since they defeated Dolphin in round 6 on November 10th last.

With results not what they have been producing in recent years, it has led to a fall off in spectator numbers in recent games but now more than ever, the side need their supporters to get behind the team and ensure they are in New Ormond Park in big numbers this Saturday, even if there is a big European Champions Cup clash down the motorway in Limerick later in the evening.
