Donegal’s U21 journey starts tonight against Derry

Declan Bonner 3

The Ulster U21 Championships sees the four quarter finals being played tonight.

Donegal host Derry in MacCumhaill Park, Ballybofey at 8pm.

Thirteen of the side which reached the final last year are eligible this time round but Manager Declan Bonner is without a number of key players, the likes of Rory Carr, Lorcan Connor, Darach O'Connor, Tony McClenaghan and captain Ciaran Thompson are not available due to injury.

Derry reached the last eight with a comfortable first round win over Antrim last week.

Declan knows that Derry will present a tough challenge...

In the other quarter finals tonight, Tyrone travel to play Cavan at Breffini Park, Down host Armagh at Pairc Esler and Monaghan play Fermanagh at Inniskeen.

Oisin Kelly will have updates from the Donegal Derry game in Ballybofey from the 8pm throw in time.
