Live score commentary from Down vs London in Christy Ring Cup Semi-Final, Saturday 26th May, Newry
Gerard Monan’s Down team will be confident of progressing to the final of the Christy Ring Cup if they can build on their victory over Meath in the last round of games.
Monan will be looking to top scorer, Paul Braniff, to continue his rich vein of form, after hitting 1-8 against the Royals. He was ably supported that day by Conor Magean, who helped himself to 1-1 and a repeat performance by both men will hold them in good stead.
London will be hopeful of pulling off another upset as they go into this semi-final brimming with confidence. Luke Hand and Martin Finn were the Exiles’ heroes as they helped themselves to three goals between them to secure victory and more of the same could see them grace the final.
Down are favourites for the tie but the manner in which London have approached their games and dispatched their opponents make them a tough nut to crack and this will be no walk in the park for Monan’s men.
