Tipp footballers eager to get off the mark

Putting points on the board is the priority for the Premier’s footballers this weekend.

Tipp open their Division 2 National Football League campaign against Cork in Páirc Uí Chaoimh on Saturday evening.

The tie is all the more mouth-watering for the Premier having been defeated by a single point in last year’s championship at the hands of the Rebels.

Former Tipp captain Brian Fox says they’re hoping to stay in Division 2 this year.
