Senior Championship Draw
Malin have been drawn in Section 1 of the newly revamped Donegal Senior Championship, alongside defending champions, St Eunans, last years beaten finalists N. Conaill, with Cloughaneely making up the foursome. This is the first year where the Senior championship will be run in this format with the top 2 sides in each section progressing to the quarter finals. With training now in full swing, and landing a plum draw in the championship, the senior players and management are eagerly awaiting the start of the new season where they will pit their wits against the best the county has to offer. Malin travel to O Donnell Park to take on St Eunans but a bumper crowd is expected in Connolly Park for the visit of both N. Conaill and Cloughaneely in the competition.
Circuit training continues for the senior and reserve panel at 7-00 on Tuesday and Thursday in the club gym. Any players who have not paid their club membership must do so before the beginning of the season. Any outstanding membership will be collected by Paul Mc Laughlin (Fildara) at training.
Men’s Reserve Football
Malin Reserves are managed by Stephen Grant, Neil McGilloway and Brendan Monagle. The management will be hoping to blood some of the young lads from the minor squad into playing adult football where the speed and hits are a step up from under-age competition. Like the Senior team, the Reserves will be travelling to some of the big name clubs in the county and will be expecting tough challenges from the start with home form sure to be a telling factor in their hopes to having a successful season.
