We are in a great place to land trophy: Corrigan
Fermanagh may have missed the boat in terms of gaining promotion to Division One of the Allianz Football League but St Michael's College, Enniskillen hope to provide a measure of compensation for the Erne county when they meet Naas CBS in the Hogan Cup final at Croke Park on Saturday (2.45pm).
And for coach Dominic Corrigan this could prove third time lucky as his buoyant side focus on the biggest prize of all at schools' level.
This will be St Michael's third appearance in the decider in seventeen years and the current team is particularly anxious to atone for the double dose of heartbreak suffered by their predecessors.
Corrigan's team has been hugely impressive in winning the MacRory Cup and their triumphant surge in the Ulster colleges' blue ribbon competition has spawned optimism ahead of Saturday's eagerly-awaited test.
"We are in a great place to win the trophy and are delighted to have this opportunity," observes Corrigan.
"We knew that it was going to be very difficult in the semi-final last Saturday and while there is only a short turnaround, the boys are in great fettle."
St Michael's scoring power has been a feature of their impressive progress to date with players such as Conor Love, Darragh McBrien, Michael Glynn and Caolan Duffy very much to the fore.
