Clare will make their bid for the knockout stages of the Oscar Traynor Trophy this weekend.
The Banner host Galway at Frank Healy Park in Doora where only a win will keep them in the hunt to regain their title.

Clare FM analyst Jim Madden feels the squad will have improved from that opening night.
Kickoff at Frank Healy Park in Doora on Saturday is at 5pm
