AIB All Ireland Junior Hurling Club Championship Quarter-Final: Brothers Pearse v Fethard St Mogues

London Intermediate Hurling Champions and All-Britain Junior Hurling Championship winners Brother Pearse take on Fethard St Mogues at McGovern Park at Ruislip tomorrow in the AIB All Ireland Junior Hurling Club Championship Quarter-Final.

The London Intermediate and All-Britain Junior Hurling champions success this season proves the Pearse’s  have bounced back after losing last year’s Intermediate county final by a single point against Fr Murphy’s.

The Londoner’s have nothing to fear going into the Quarter-Final tomorrow and will be high of the momentum from their comfortable 11 point win over Manchester based side Fullen Gaels.

Brothers Pearse are London’s oldest existing club and shouldn’t be underestimated by St Mogue’s due to Pearse’s never say die attitude and the ability to stay composed under pressure. The London side’s chances will also be helped massively by forwards Phil Hogan and Conor Kennedy who gave Brother’s Pearse the match-winning edge in the All-Britan Final.

Visitors to London are Fethard St Mogues, who booked their Quarter-Final spot with a 1-17 to 2-11 win over Kilkenny side John Lockes.

St Mogue’s are also Wexford Intermediate A Hurling Champions after they beat Duffry Rovers 1-14 to 0-13 back in October.

Mark Wallace will be the man that Brothers Pearse will need to keep an eye on if they are to progress to the Semi Final. Corner- Forward Wallace scored 0-9 in St Mogue’s Leinster final win and once again will provide a real threat to The Pearse’s backline.

Both sides will be up for the fight tomorrow and although the outcome is uncertain, there is no doubt that this will be an entertaining game.

Throw in 13.30pm, McGovern Park, Ruislip.
