BUCCANEERS U-20s commence their Leinster League qualifiers with an enticing home fixture against Galwegians on Sunday afternoon. Kick-off in Dubarry Park is at 2 p.m. Buccs had promising displays away to Clontarf and Blackrock College in recent weeks and may be further advanced in their preparations than Wegians. However, the light blues cannot be discounted as there is great rivalry between the clubs. However, new head coach David McAllister and his assistant Joe Walsh will have guarded against any complacency and it will be interesting to see how these young Pirates perform on home soil on Sunday.
BUCCANEERS SECONDS, who also have a new head coach in Martin Staunton, are on the road north-west on Sunday with a trip to take on Ballyhaunis in the Curley Cup. The action at Tooraree kicks off at 2.30 p.m. for this finely balanced duel.
