Cork SFC preliminary round: Valley Rovers v Mallow,
Páirc Uí Rinn
(J Ryan, Macroom), 6.15pm. Valley Rovers, beaten quarterfinalists last year, are without Gary Farrell, Darragh Murphy and Darragh Crowley, all of whom are abroad, while Jack Lyons is sidelined through injury. Mallow’s James Loughrey did not feature for Cork during their league campaign and it remains to be seen if he will play a part here.
Verdict: Valley Rovers.
Cork SFC Round 1: Bishopstown v Douglas, Páirc Uí Rinn (C Lane, Banteer), 8pm.
