Round 8 of the Credit Union Senior Football League   11/07/2017

Round 8 of the Credit Union Senior Football League this weekend

The Credit Union Senior Football League takes center stage once again this weekend with a wide range of fixtures across all Divisions. The various Rounds have passed alarmingly fast with all fixtures fully up to date at the end of Round 6 which must be some sort of a record in itself.

In Division 1 there is no doubt that it is a case of who will finish behind Dr Crokes and qualify for the League final with the Killarney side who remain  unbeaten and four points to the good. Behind them there is a right race for second place with Rathmore, An Ghaeltacht, Glenbeigh-Glencar and Dingle all tied on 10 points with the big game this weekend being the meeting of Glenbeigh-Glencar and An Ghaeltacht. The situation at the bottom is no less interesting with Desmonds still without a point and the Castleisland outfit will surely need to get at least a point from their visit to Strand Road. It is the predicament of Austin Stacks that is getting most attention however as they hover on the brink with just three points ahead of their visit to Milltown in this round. There is one back game in this Division that between Rathmore and Templenoe on July 27th while Rathmore and Milltown-Castlemaine brought forward their Round 9 game to Wednesday of last week a game Rathmore won by 3-17 to 1-9.

In Division 2, Legion have dropped just one point as they lead the table by 2 points on 13 from Spa on 11, Glenflesk on 10 and Beaufort on 9. Indeed the closeness of the teams is a feature of Divisio2 this year where just three points separates seven teams. The big game this weekend is the meeting of Spa and Glenflesk who are second and third in the table respectively. Towards the bottom, Listry have 2 points with three teams on 4 points namely Waterville, St Pats and Ardfert, though Ardfert and Listry both have back games with the game between  Emmets and Listry due to be played on  July 20th while the game between  Ardfert and Kenmare will need to be refixed due to Hurling fixtures. Two games this weekend have been rescheduled with Kilcummin playing Ardfert on July 19th next and Listry and Beaufort going back to August 3rd by agreement.

Division 2 Table

There are five games in Division 3 this weekend (Finuge and St Senans have already played their Round 8 game) and the big game is the meeting of Brosna and Dromid Pearses. Dromid top the table on 12 points followed by Na Gaeil and Ballymacelligott on 11 with Brosna and Finuge on 9 points.  At the bottom, both St Michaels-Foilmore on 1 point and Fossa on 2points would want to be getting points on the board but the former have joint second placed Ballymac as visitors while John Evans takes his Fossa side to visit his native Laune Rangers. There is one outstanding back game involving St Senans and Annascaul that has to be refixed.

In Division 4, all games are up to date with Skellig Rangers on top of the table on 12 points followed by Keel and Lispole on 11 and Dr Crokes and Castlegregory on 10. Leaders Skellig Rangers visit mid table Firies while the big game in the top half is the meeting of Keel and Castlegregory. At the bottom, Scartaglen have just 1 point, Beale have 2, Sneem-Derrynane 3, Tarbert 4 and Duagh 5. There are two big games in this half of the Division and both are “four” pointers with Beale entertaining Scartaglen and Tarbert welcoming North Kerry rivals Duagh.
