Ladies in search of silver lining

TG4 LGFA Intermediate Relegation play-off semi-final:
Roscommon v Louth on Saturday in Kinnegad at 3 pm

It has been a season to forget for Roscommon Ladies footballers but they can take something positive out of the gloom by beating Louth in a relegation play-off on Saturday.

Roscommon’s record against ‘The Wee County’ has been good over the years and Ollie Lennon and his players will be hoping that they can summon one good performance to end the season in the knowledge that they will be playing in the Intermediate grade in 2024 with victory here.

It will be important for Roscommon to get their attackers into the game and the likes of Aisling Feely, Aisling Hanly and captain Laura Fleming will have huge roles to play once again.

The incentive of finishing the season on a positive note is appealing from a Roscommon point of view and it would be a surprise if they were not to achieve the necessary in Kinnegad.

Also on Saturday, Offaly play Longford in the other relegation play-off semi-final.

Prediction: Roscommon
