Glen Rovers – Newtownshandrum Match Prediction | 21-09-2019 12:00

The Cork Intermediate Hurling Championship dates back to 1909, however, in 2003 it was decided to split the grade into Premier Intermediate and ordinary Intermediate. In recent years the provincial place has been reserved for the Premier Intermediate champions. In earlier years the winners of both the Premier Intermediate and Intermediate grades would have a play-off to decide which team would represent Cork in the Munster Intermediate Club Hurling Championship. In its inaugural year in 2004, the Premier Intermediate grade was confined to sixteen clubs while the lowest ranked intermediate teams from 2003 were joined by the Junior Championship winners as well as the individual divisional winners - Argideen Rangers, Kanturk, Carrigaline, Blackrock and Watergrasshill. Grenagh, who won the Muskerry division in the junior grade, declined the invitation.

At the start of the 2009 county championship few pundits gave Newtownshandrum a chance of claiming back the Sen g Murphy Cup. The team that had burst on the scene a decade earlier was now an ageing one, however, some younger players freshened things up somewhat. After some convincing victories the north Cork club reached their sixth county final of the decade. While a poor opening half saw little separating the sides Newtown went on the rampage in the second-half. It was a clash of the past masters and the reigning champions as Sarsfield's attempted to retain their title for a second year in succession.

That breakthrough success was only their third, and first in 51 years. Sars have the strongest panel in the county. That number doesn't include Michael Cussen, who has played a phenomenal part in Sars' modern success. They were young at the time and won a county title ahead of expectation. Their starting team that defeated Na Piarsaigh in the semi-final included seven players who have played senior inter-county championship, two with Wexford - Eoin Quigley and anna Martin.

It was east Cork versus north Cork, however, the club from the tiny parish of 800 triumphed on their first attempt in a county final, albeit in controversial circumstances as a late Erin's Own goal was disallowed. It was far from a traditional final as one-time champions Erin's Own provided the opposition. The county final victory was the highlight of the year as Newtown failed to make any impact in the subsequent Munster Senior Club Hurling Championship. Four years after graduating from the intermediate grade, Newtownshandrum took the senior grade by storm and reached the championship decider in the top tier of Cork hurling. A 014 to 011 victory gave Newtownshandrum a county championship title in the senior grade.

In 2003 Newtownshandrum continued their dominance of the county club championship; however, they had yet to claim a second county title. A win for the Rockies would give them a third county title in-a-row, while a defeat for Newtownshandrum would surely undermine all the good work that had been done in getting the club into the senior ranks of the championship in the first place. The stakes were high for both teams. A 017 to 09 defeat of the mighty Rockies cemented Newtowns reputation as a great team and also gave them a second county title. On the day Newtownshandrum ran away with the victory. The county final that year was a repeat of the 2002 decider when Newtown faced Blackrock once again.
