Mayfield will be no pushovers

County IFC: Millstreet v Mayfield, Saturday, April 15, Carrigadrohid 6pm

Millstreet take the journey to Carrigadrohid on Saturday evening to encounter Mayfield in the County IFC.

Millstreet returned to intermediate status in 2015 for the first time since 1997 and faced a tough baptism of fire that entailed a run of defeats. Matters improved last season to enjoy wins over Aghabullogue, Ballydesmond and St Finbarrs.

That winning sequence ended after a below par performance in a semi final loss to Rockchapel. Operating in Division 5 League, three defeats are recorded with just a single win delivered against Gabriel Rangers.

Opponents Mayfield can vouch for a fantastic season to date, landing an All Ireland JAHC title eight weeks ago. The majority of their side are dual players, obviously taking a time to adjust to football.

However, the city side have concentrated on league division 4 in recent times, their best performance to date this season evident last week on a draw against Glenville.

Not lacking confidence, Mayfield will look to a promising 2015 campaign, ending the hopes of Kanturk en route to reaching a final only to come up short in a replay against Fermoy.

Mayfield are no pushovers and Millstreet will need to maximise their potential if they are to jump this formidable hurdle. Second round opponents for Millstreet / Mayfield are Douglas / Glanworth.
