Ronan Clarke setting his aims high at helm of Armagh ladies

Published 30/01/2016

Fourteen years ago Ronan Clarke was limbering up in preparation for what proved a successful assault on the All-Ireland title with Armagh.

Right now, though, the 2002 Young Footballer of the Year has another more modest yet earnestly craved goal in his sights as the new manager of the Armagh ladies team.

When his side take the field against Monaghan in their opening Lidl Division One National League tie at Emyvale tomorrow he will be hoping that it proves the first step to major honours.

Also in Division One, Tyrone have home advantage at Killyclogher against Galway who will be under the guidance of new manager Willie Ward.

In Division Three, Down face a stern task against Wexford as they bid to pick up the pieces following last year's setbacks.

Derry will face Louth in Division Four at Owenbeg where the home management team of Charlie O'Kane and Michael McGovern will be hoping that their team can hit early form.

National Football League (All games at 2.00pm): Division One: Monaghan v Armagh (Emyvale), Tyrone v Galway (Killyclogher). Division Two: Westmeath v Donegal (St Loman's, Mullingar), Cavan v Kildare (Kingspan Breffni Park). Division Three: Fermanagh v Leitrim (Bawnacre Centre), Down v Wexford (Abbey CBS Newry). Division Four: Wicklow v Antrim (Bray Emmets).
