kingdom to give Cavan real Croke park lesson

Cavan, who played in 11 All-Ireland finals between 1925 and 1952, made a rare championship appearance at Croke Park on Saturday and managed their first win there in a lifetime – but with a struggle.

London, the novelty team of this championship campaign, put it up to Cavan and at times even in the second half , the hot favourites were just about hanging on. This was their sixth championship game of the season, a number they did not reach even when they won their last All-Ireland back in 1952.

Possibly these young Cavan players were inclined to take victory for granted because London operate in Division 4, but without a doubt they will have no such illusions when they play Kerry in the quarter-final on Sunday.

So far this has been a very good year for the men of Breffni, with five victories, and the experience gained will surely prove invaluable for a team based on three successive Ulster U-21 title-winning sides.

Playing Kerry, of course, will represent the most daunting lesson to date for Terry Hyland and his troops.
