There certainly won't be much travel involved for the Red Caps, at least in the group stages this season with their three opponents, Fox Lodge, Burndennett and Bready all within touching distance of the Park.

Skipper Tommy Barr is reporting an unchanged panel for 2020 although there will be no overseas presence and Peter Gillespie is in the first season of his retirement.

Elsewhere it's business as usual with the skipper happy to see a few of the younger lads around the club continue their progress.

"This is as much as we could have hoped for this season so we're glad to be getting back to playing again. Obviously the senior cup will be a big draw for many and it would be great to get a go at that, however the format provides a real chance of silverware for everyone.

"We've had a few young players breaking through in recent seasons and even though it's a short summer I think that you'll see the likes of Tom Harpur and Conor Graham given more opportunity this time.

"It's a unique season in that there is no pressure in terms of promotion and relegation. It's a chance for the boys to play the game without looking over their shoulder and it will be interesting to see if there are any longer term positives to come out of this year.

"We're looking forward to it and hoping to make the best of what we have."

It's a home match against Fox Lodge for Barr's men on Saturday- a game that is always keenly contested regardless of the circumstances.
