Ardfert and Spa in Intermediate Final Preview 2014-10-16 22:47:00


Ardfert and Spa in Intermediate Final
Castleisland Mart Intermediate Football Final

The Castleisland Mart Intermediate Football Championship final will see Spa and Ardfert meet in the opening game of a very attractive double header at Fitzgerald Stadium on Sunday next (2pm).
Spa earned their final place following victory over Castlegregory in Round 1 and then disposed of Listowel Emmets after a replay in the quarter final before defeating neighbours Glenflesk in the semi final by a four goal margin, 4-13 to 0-13.
Ardfert defeated St Marys and John MItchels on route to the final before disposing of a fancied Desmonds side in the semi final on a 1-12 to 0-10 scoreline.
Ardfert last won this title back in 2006 and went on to claim the All Ireland Club title the following Spring, while their opponents Spa, won the title in 2009 before going down to Moy of Tyrone in the Club Final.
Spa also appeared in the 2012 Intermediate final when they were defeated by Finuge after a replay.
Sunday is a big day for both clubs and no doubt the perfect settin of Fitzgerald Stadium should bring out the best in both sides as they strive to regain senior championship status in 2015.
The winners of the Intermediate championship will be in Munster Club action on October 26th at home to the Clare winners.
