Mullahoran captain Killian Brady believes his team will be playing for more than just pride when they meet St Enda's, Glengormley in the Ulster Club Intermediate Football Championship final.

Brady has watched his side mature this term, their County Championship title success being followed by an Ulster Club itinerary that has seen them get the better of Down champions Bredagh and Derry side Banagher, and now believes that they are in a position to strike a blow for Cavan football.

"We knew at the start of the year that it was always going to be difficult to win the Cavan Intermediate Championship because three teams who had been at senior level had dropped down a grade. But, in fact, the matches we played in winning our county title have stood to us in the Ulster Championship so far," explained Brady.

The midfielder's partnership with Gavin Brady has invariably been the launchpad for Mullahoran's attacking strategy, but the skipper acknowledges that they will find the going difficult against St Enda's.

"We have had new players coming in and they have helped give us a boost," pointed out Brady. "They are playing with great energy and we all believe we can maybe give Cavan football a bit of a boost by winning the Ulster title. That is not going to be easy because we know what St Enda's are capable of."
