Omagh are playing hosts to Midleton in the Second Round of the AIl in Thomas Melon Park at 2:30 on the 23rd of September.  Both teams are coming off the back of opening round victories, Omagh coming off the worst, however, with a number of documented injuries.   John O’Neill has an increasing pool of players to pick from, enabling different personnel able to tog out each week without any major drop in skill level.  The travelling squad faces a long trip to be ready for the battle that no doubt awaits them.  It is up to coach John O’Neill and skipper Rob Smyth to ensure that the Midleton men are fresh enough for the match, aiming for a strong start against the relative newcomers to the senior ranks.  The aim for the opening four rounds of the AIL is to come away with maximum points, two games are left in the first block following the Omagh match, Bangor at home and Bective Rangers Away.  Both of which will be a tough day out for the Midleton men.
