Cookstown want double

Minor South champions Cookstown finished off their league programme with a 77-19 win over Rainey IV on Saturday but their main ambition is to win the Harden Cup.

They have lost only twice in the league, to Omagh IV and by 15-14 to Enniskillen III and drew with Portadown V, all away from home, so they are optimistic about their home Harden Cup semi-final against Malone V.

The teams have already met this season in the McCambley Cup when Cookstown were the first team to record a win over Malone 27-3 but they had inadvertently included a non-registered player and were subsequently disqualified.

The Tyrone side are young and a number of the players have come from the GAA.

Club president Gavin Stinson said: "This is our 25th season and apart from last year we were also in the McCambley Cup final in 1990. There would be a real celebration if we managed to win the Harden in our silver anniversary season."
