Senior Football League - Updated Friday 18th
Credit Union Senior Football League
The Credit Union Senior Football League, bar a couple of back games, is now down to the final Round of games.
In Division 1, Dr Crokes, following their victory over Milltown-Castlemaine (2-14 to 0-12) on Friday evening, are in the Division 1 Final and the second final place rests between An Ghaeltacht on 16 points (away to St Marys in final round) and Rathmore on 14 points (home to Austin Stacks in Round 11).
Castleisland Desmonds and Austin Stacks are relegated to Division 2 next season and Milltown-Castlemaine, who are on 6 points, will need to defeat John Mitchels in the final round. St Marys are two points better off on 8 points and have a tough final game with An Ghaeltacht.
In Division 2, Killarney Legion were already promoted to Division 1 next season and they will be joined by Spa and Beaufort following Beaufort’s victory over St Pats ( 4-12 to 0-9) and Kilcummin’s victory over Glenflesk (3-15 to 1-10) both played on Friday evening.
At the bottom of the table, Listry are relegated to Division 3 next season but who will join them will depend on the final round of games. St Pats (5 points), Waterville (6 points), Kilcummin and Listowel Emmets (both 7 points) are all in relegation trouble. In the final round of games, St Pats play Kenmare, Waterville play Listry, Emmets play Ardfert and Kilcummin play Spa.
In Division 3, Ballymacelligott and Na Gaeil were already promoted to Division 2 and following St Senans defeat of Laune Rangers on Friday evening (0-11 to 1-7), Dromid Pearses have been confirmed as the third team to be promoted.
At the foot of the Division 3 table, St Michaels-Foilmore are relegated to Division 4 and they will be joined by two from Fossa (4 points) , Gneeveguilla (5 points), and Ballydonoghue (7 points) who are all in relegation trouble with two important back games to be played in the coming week; On Tuesday 22nd Gneeveguilla play Fossa and on Wednesday 23rd Laune Rangers will play Ballydonoghue.
In Division 4, the top three promotion places rest between Keel, Lispole, Skellig Rangers and Dr Crokes with a playoff very likely to decide placings. There are no back games in this division.
In Division 5, Cordal and Ballylongford are promoted with Rathmore or Churchill likely to join them in Division 4 next season.
All of the above Promotion and Relegation comments are provisional – the CCC has final say in all Fixtures matters.
Round 11 of the Senior Football League will be played either on the weekend of September 24th (should Kerry reach the All Ireland final) or the weekend of August 27th (should Kerry not be contesting the All Ireland final).
