Three EirGrid Under 20 provincial finals and a critical Allianz Division Two encounter are scheduled this weekend.

Under the Saturday evening Brewster Park lights, Fermanagh and Armagh collide with both eager to secure the full complement of spoils.

Unsurprisingly this group is proving to be highly competitive with at least one defeat suffered by each of the eight teams.

Armagh, though, know that an away win would leave them joint top with Roscommon, who they host at the Athletic Grounds on March 14.

A revealing spell certainly looms for Kieran McGeeney's team, who continue to show signs of promise.

Despite suffering three losses thus far, Fermanagh were unfortunate to be narrowly defeated Kildare, Westmeath, and Cavan.

With Kildare and Clare both chalking up important wins last weekend, Fermanagh are completely aware of how relevant the impending fixture with Armagh is.

On Friday evening Dublin and Laois contest the Leinster Under 20 decider at Netwatch Cullen Park.

Eddie Kinsella's improving Laois, with Mark Barry sharp in attack, have shown admirable battling qualities advancing to a second successive showpiece at this level.

Prompted by goals from Luke Swan and Lorcan O'Dell, Dublin proved far too strong for Meath at the penultimate stage.

Out west on Saturday afternoon Galway face Roscommon at Tuam Stadium.

Galway won four Connacht minor titles in a row between 2015 and 2018 with several of those players now emerging at senior level.

Donal O'Fatharta's panel includes promising players such as Cathal Sweeney, Paul Kelly, and Matthew Tierney, but they will afford Roscommon the utmost respect.

Roscommon enjoyed a 1-11 to 1-8 triumph over Sligo with Ciaran Lawless, Paul Carey, and Adam McDermott prominent.

The Ulster encounter involving Tyrone and Dongeal is also worth monitoring at St Tiernach's Park.

Aaron Doherty's 1-3 haul helped Donegal overcome Down, while Padraig McGettigan and Rory O'Donnell also struck vital scores.

The highly regarded Darragh Canavan is an influential figure for Paul Devlin's charges.
