Big day for Knockananna Camogie on Saturday

It has been a year of milestones for Knockananna Camogie Club and on Saturday they take on another great challenge in County Louth.

The Wicklow and Leinster Champions will once again go up against Ulster opponents in the AIB 2021 Junior B All-Ireland Club Championship Final.

In December Knockananna agonisingly lost by a single point in the 2020 final to Tyrone’s Naomh Treasa but since then have convincingly made the this Saturday’s final by winning two games in the Leinster Championship and the All-Ireland final.

In January on home soil they defeated Louth Champions St.Brides 1-12 to 1-1 and then went on to beat Westmeath champions St.Brigid’s by 5-7 to 7 points in the Leinster final.

An All-Ireland semi-final pitted the Wicklow ladies against Fullen Gaels from Manchester where again they had a convincing win by 2-15 to 1-2.

Tom Byrne will be playing his cards close to his chest as he takes on Tyrone champions Derrylaughan in Drogheda.

In the December final Naomh Treasa had a game plan and that was to stop Knockananna playing a fast moving game, and it worked in a close final where one could tell the team that got a goal would always be likely to win the game and it proved to be.

So good luck to the Knockananna girls and hopefully they can bring the title home Saturday night.
