A Man of the Match performance from Niall Grimley helped Armagh produce a solid performance to overcome Fermanagh tonight in the Athletic Grounds. With things being nip and tuck through the first half, Grimley along with Jamie Clarke got the scores to stride forward in the last 20 minutes of the game to win comfortably.
The team will now gain confidence from this result and look forward to the draw for round 2 of the qualifiers.
The Round 2B football and Round 1 hurling draw will take place on RTÉ Radio 1’s Morning Ireland programme on Monday after the 8.30am news.
Four games will take place on the weekend of 8/9 July.
Cavan, Armagh, Wexford and Carlow will go into a draw with the defeated ‘B’ side provincial semi-finalists: Westmeath, Monaghan, Tipperary and Leitrim.
A separate draw will be made for home advantage and where two teams have met previously in this year’s provincial championship the winner of that game gets to play on their own patch.
