Tipp minor footballers and hurlers in action this weekend

The Tipperary minor football team get their championship underway tomorrow.

They’re up against Clare in the Munster Quarter-Final at 5 o clock on Saturday evening in Semple Stadium.

There are 35 players training as part of the panel, however current restrictions only allows 24 players to attend the game.

Speaking to Tipp FM, Tipperary manager Johnny Nevin said telling 11 players that they can’t go to the game was the hardest thing he’s had to do.

“I had to ring eleven parents and eleven players to speak to them and tell them they weren’t togging out or even able to attend the match.”

“I understand totally that there are restrictions in place because of Covid-19 and I totally appreciate that’s necessary. But I can’t understand I just don’t see the sense when you have a large stadium like Semple Stadium why you can’t let eleven players in who would be socially distanced from each other.”

Meanwhile the Tipp minor hurlers take on Waterford in the Munster semi-final at Pairc ui Rinn at 3 o’clock tomorrow afternoon.

The game will be live here on Tipp FM with thanks to Colm Hanly Motors, main dealer for MG Electric Vehicles, Cork Road, Cashel.
