Ulster Club Intermediate Championship: Fermanagh ace Little shows he’s still a big player

By John Campbell

Mark Little, who played a big part when Fermanagh surged into the All Ireland semi-finals six years ago, sent out a defiant message to new county boss John O’Neill that he still has much to offer when he emerged as man of the match for Lisnaskea in their 2-11 to 0-9 win over Rasharkin in the Ulster Club Intermediate football semi-final yesterday.

Little scored one of Lisnaskea’s goals, garnished this with three points and proved a creative force throughout against the Antrim champions for whom the impressive Eamon McNeill scored four points with Declan McKay grabbing a brace.

The Erne men were physically stronger and much more cohesive than their opponents but they can expect a much tougher test when they meet Monaghan champions Doohamlet in the final on Sunday week.

In the other semi-final yesterday Doohamlet were convincing |2-12 to 0-5 winners over Tyrone champions Derrylaughan.

And to make it a particularly joyful week for new Meath manager Seamus McEnaney, his Corduff club overcame Armagh title-holders Grange by 0-15 to |0-10 to reach the Ulster Club Junior final.

Raymond Byrne proved a tower of strength for Corduff in the second-half which was highlighted by a stunning four-points blitz from ace marksman Martin Mills.

McEnaney, in charge of Monaghan for the past six years, is immersed in a fund-raising campaign for Corduff who will now meet Cavan kingpins Swanlinbar who overcame Down champions Drumaness 0-15 to 0-7.
