Big call: Ryan McMenamin is adamant that his Fermanagh side will not be in a position to fulfil their opening fixture

With Fermanagh having called a halt to collective training because of a coronavirus outbreak within the squad on top of the ban on all club activity, it comes as no great surprise that manager Ryan McMenamin is now hoping that his team's important Allianz League encounter with Clare next weekend can be postponed.

Over the course of this week, the incidence of coronavirus is understood to have increased within the county overall, and sport in general is now being put on the back burner.

Tyrone triple All-Ireland winner McMenamin has been wary from the outset in relation to the resumption of inter-county games and now finds himself on the horns of a dilemma with just a week to go before the resumption of the inter-county season is due to get under way.
