Change of venue for Wicklow hurlers’ league clash against Derry

Bray Emmets Club House

Bray Emmets GAA has been announced as the new venue for the Wicklow hurlers’ league clash against Derry this weekend.

Seamus Murphy’s Wicklow side host Derry in the final game of division 2B of the Allianz national hurling league this Sunday in a game that was postponed last weekend as a result of Storm Emma.

The match was originally refixed to take place in Joule Park in Aughrim — the home of Wicklow county GAA.

However, Wicklow GAA revealed on Friday that the game would now take place at the home of Bray Emmets.

A win against Derry will cement Wicklow in third-place in division 2B. Second-place Down take on league leaders Mayo knowing that their head-to-head record against Wicklow means that they cannot be overtaken by the Garden County — regardless of what happens this weekend.

Meanwhile, Derry — who sit in last-place in the division — travel to Wicklow knowing that they are resigned to a relegation play-off against Armagh.

Elsewhere, the Wicklow footballers will travel to play against high-flying Carlow in round five of division 4 of the Allianz national football league on Saturday night — another game which was rescheduled from last weekend.

John Evans’ men are winless in the league so far having picked up their only points in draws against Waterford and Antrim.

On the other hand, Carlow will be looking to maintain their 100% record in the league as they continue to compete with Laois for the league title.

Wicklow vs Derry throws-in at 2:30pm on Sunday while Carlow vs Wicklow throws-in at 7pm on Saturday.
