Kinvara and Tommie Larkins kick start SENIOR SHIELD   04/10/2012

The new format of this years Senior and Intermediate Championships have included SHIELD competitions for those clubs who have failed to qualify from the group stages of the championship.

Getting a start on affairs in the SENIOR SHIELD we have the first quarter-final meeting between Tommie Larkins and Kinvara. Both these clubs will have something to prove after not making the top two of their championship groups.

Tommie Larkins were probably most people's favourites to join Gort to qualify from Group A, but lost out to Padraig Pearses instead. They started the year well beating Carnmore in Round 1, and then followed up by beating Moycullen in the first group match. On top of that at that stage they were leading their group in the Senior League. But all the early work came undone after the defeat to Padraig Pearses, followed by another to Gort.

Meanwhile Kinvara will also want to prove their own worth in the top flight after last year. They competed well in the Senior League, winning a couple of matches, and beat neighbours Ardrahan in the Round 1 game. But they failed to progress further after narrow defeats in the group to Craughwell and then Castlegar, while they also lost to Portumna. 

So plenty to prove for all sides in the SENIOR SHIELD with the first hearing taking place this Sunday!
