The Tipperary Senior footballers continued their unbeaten run in round 3 of the Allianz Football League as they were held to a draw by Westmeath in Cusack Park, Mullingar on Sunday last. The final score read Tipperary 1-8 Westmeath 0-11, with Robbie Kiely netting the all-important goal in the first half.
With Tipperary remaining strongly in contention for promotion to division 2 next up for Liam Kearns’ side is a home fixture against Offaly in Semple Stadium on Sunday next as part of a double bill with the throw in at 12.45pm.
Tipperary are one of seven teams in all divisions that remain unbeaten and will face tough opposition in Offaly who have settled in well to division 3 following last year’s promotion. With both sides on 4 points, two behind league leaders Kildare, a home victory would be an enormous boost to Tipperary as they continue to stay in touch with the Lilywhites and that desired promotion spot.
Again we send best wishes to our Tipp footballers and ask all supporters to make their way to the ground early in support of the side.
