Next year’s Ulster SFC is going to be as competitive as ever and Sean Cavanagh is already looking forward to the summer of 2020.

The Red Hand County will be out for revenge when they travel up to Ballybofey to take on holders Donegal and, speaking following the draw on RTÉ Radio's 1's Morning Ireland programme this morning, Cavanagh said: “The Ulster championship never seems to disappoint.

“The most fascinating game last summer was probably Donegal-Tyrone up in Breffni Park. Tyrone yet again are going to have to head up to Ballybofey. We haven't had a great record up there.

“There's no getting away from the fact it's a most difficult tie. But that's what you get with the Ulster championship.”

Derry and Armagh are on the same side of the draw as the two heavyweights and Cavanagh added: “Armagh are probably another team that are making real strides. There's a sense there that there's a team building that can challenge for an Ulster title. 

“To be drawn on the same side as Donegal and Tyrone I'm sure disappoints them but they'll be hoping to build a team to challenge.”
