FIVE games from this weekend’s Donegal All-County Football League schedule have been put back a week after the Donegal Competitions Controls Committee considered a request from clubs who have players involved in the Donegal Under-21 squad.

Following last night’s 0-15 to 0-10 win over Armagh, Maxi Curran’s Under-21s face Cavan in the Ulster final on Wednesday night.

With the Donegal senior team in action against Armagh on Sunday, a round of ‘starred’ fixtures had been pencilled in for this Saturday evening.

The Division 1 games, Ardara v Malin, Naomh Conaill v St Michael’s and Four Masters v Kilcar, the Division 2 meeting of Sean MacCumhaills and Fanad Gaels as well as the Division 3 fixture between Naomh Colmcille and Red Hughs have been postponed this weekend and have been re-fixed for Sunday, April 13 at 3pm.
