The Derry intermediate and senior champions have an extra step if they are to climb to the pinnacle of Ulster club football this season.

The winners of the senior football championship face a trip to Donegal in the preliminary round as they aim to take the title currently held by Kilcoo after the 2020 competitions were cancelled due to fixture congestion following Covid-19 lockdowns.

The 2020 Donegal final, between Kilcar and Naomh Conaill, will be played this weekend.

At intermediate level, the Ulster draw follows the same format with Derry's junior winners set for a trip to the Fermanagh champions.

On the hurling front, it's Derry turn to face Antrim at the semi-final stage, with the Down champions waiting in the decider.
