LIMERICK GOALKEEPER NICKIE Quaid took a big step on his road to recovery by playing a club match tonight.

Quaid, Limerick’s regular netminder in recent seasons, has missed their Munster championship ties against Clare and Tipperary already this season.

He suffered a collarbone injury in training in April and the 25 year-old has been absent since with Kilmallock’s Barry Hennessy deputising in his absence.

But tonight Quaid was in action for his club Effin against South Liberties in a Limerick championship game and emerged unscathed.

The news is a major boost for Limerick as they get set to travel the backdoor route following last Sunday’s heavy loss to Tipperary in the Gaelic Grounds.

Limerick’s first qualifier assignment is away to Westmeath in Mullingar on Sunday 5 July at 2pm.
