Convery stays on medal trail as Watty Graham's eye a hat-trick
Connor Convery is hoping to land his second medal within a month when he leads Watty Graham's, Glen into today's Ulster U21 Club football final against Crossmaglen Rangers at the Kickhams Creggan complex near Randalstown (2.30pm).
Convery was in the St Mary's University College squad that won the Sigerson Cup and is now targeting a third successive provincial triumph with his club side.
Watty Graham's include several players who have participated in the last two deciders and this ration of experience will certainly bolster the side today.
Cathal Mulholland, Paul Gunning, Callum Mullan Young and Conor McDevitt are among the players who can spark the Watty Graham's challenge but they will be up against a Crossmaglen side that will be bolstered by the O'Neill brothers Oisin and Rian along with Aidan Rushe, Shane Farrelly and Stephen Morris.
The south Armagh side have certainly not had things all their own way to date and were fully extended by Mayobridge in their quarter-final before eventually seeing off Stewartstown Harps in a tense semi-final by 2-12 to 1-12.
The Rangers, who have never won the competition in their history, play a fast, open brand of attacking football but Watty Graham's look to have the edge in terms of teamwork and cohesion - qualities that could well take them to an Ulster U21 title hat-trick.
