Live score commentary from Armagh v Derry in the Ulster SHC Quarter Final, Sunday 17th June, Morgan Athletic Grounds
Since their return to the Ulster Senior Hurling Championship after a 60-year hiatus, Armagh have grown in leaps and bounds. Reaching the U21 and Senior finals last year has given the Orchard a much needed boost and they look to continue their form against Derry on Sunday.
Armagh, who have been plying their trade in the Nicky Rackard Cup, know that they will face a severe step up in class.
Derry have been playing the likes of Kildare, Kerry and Down in Division 2A of the Allianz National Hurling League are are well accustomed to playing stiffer opposition than Armagh.
Kevin Hinphy will return to the squad after missing the previous game due to his honeymoon. Both teams will not name their side until closer to the game but this should be a close fought affair with Derry taken to progress marginally due to their earlier matches against better opponents.
