UUJ have had to withdraw from this year's McKenna club owing to the unavailability of players.

The students were due to face Cavan tonight in Breffni Park but the home side have been awarded a walkover and will now progress to the semi-finals this Sunday.

The Breffni County will now top Group C having already defeated both Antrim and Down.

Sunday's last-four pairing will see Terry Hyland's men face the best runner up from the three groups - which at this stage is likely to be either Down or Monaghan.

OFFALY forward Anton Sullivan is expected to return to intercounty action in early March.

The Faithful County face Sligo on Sunday, March 2 and manager Emmet McDonnell says Sullivan - who is back in training following a shoulder injure - could feature then.

"Anton's not far away, he's working exceptionally hard and it's just about getting the strength and confidence back in his shoulder," said McDonnell.
