THE ULSTER SENIOR club football championship enters the latter stages today, with a place in the provincial decider on offer.

The Athletic Grounds in Derry is the venue for the clash between Tyrone champions Killyclogher and Slaughtneil of Derry, while Down’s Kilcoo and Armagh’s Maghery do battle in Páirc Esler, Newry.

This is Slaughtneil’s third straight Ulster club campaign, and the four-time Derry champions, who are heavily fancied today, lifted their only provincial title in 2014.

Killyclogher are coming out of Tyrone for just the second time in their history (the first was in 2003) and their five point quarter-final win over Cargin was the club’s first ever victory in the provincial championship.

Kicloo are the dominant force in Down, having won six titles since 2009 and 15 overall. They made it to the Ulster final for the first time in 2012, but fell to Crossmaglen Rangers.

Their opponents Maghery are undoubtedly in bonus territory. They ended a 110-year drought when they secured their first ever Armagh SFC crown last month and will be big underdogs for this clash.
