NEWLY-CROWNED South West U21A football champions Ilen Rovers are hopeful that both Tom Bushe and Donal O’Driscoll will play some part in Saturday night’s county U21A quarter-final in Newcestown, at 7.30pm.
Both Bushe and O’Driscoll were taken off in the second half of last Saturday night’s South West championship final win against Newcestown in Drimoleague.
Ilen boss Sean Casey admits it’s ‘touch and go’ as to whether the duo will feature against Fermoy.
‘They’re receiving treatment and we’re hopeful that they might play some part – but we won’t know until later in the week,’ Casey said.
Both Stephen Leonard and Donal Collins, who missed the South West final win against Newcestown, have been ruled out of Saturday night’s game against a Fermoy team that has Noel Crowley involved in their management set up, brother of O’Donovan Rossa senior football manager Shane Crowley.
