As Monaghan 2018 Junior champions Emyale entered the Ulster Club Championship and had a fine victory in the first round to send them into the Quarter-finals. Their opposition was Newtownstewart, County Tyrone, and they were the fancied side. They were strong in Tyrone and they had a number of talented players. From the start it looked like Emyvale were in trouble. Newtown were boring holes through the Emyvale defence and taking scores from all angles. They netted a goal which might have dampened the confidence of our boys but as the half moved on so did they and soon they were beginning to show their true form. Bit by bit they were clawing their way back and in the second half they put on a show of good football and established a substantial lead but when they hit the back of the net few could see Newtown coming back and so it went to the end with another fine victory. It was a tough game and a punishing one with lots of off-the-ball tackles.  It would be a treat if Emyvale came up against a team willing to play open and fast football as the game of football would be much easier on the eye.   However it was a joy to watch Emyvale during the second half and see them play as a team with players on the move and making a big contribution. A couple of players found it difficult to get into the game and play to their usual form and when a team reaches this level of play then it takes every man to play a full game in order to secure victory. There were a number of injuries and thankfully all are expected to recover during this week. We await the outcome of Antrim V Donegal next weekend as Emyvale will meet the winner in the semi-final. In the meantime - well done to team and subs and to management who got the formula right and made the changes when they made the difference.
