Weekend Credit Union Senior Football League Roundup 2016-08-21 22:12:00


Weekend Credit Union Senior Football League Roundup

Despite the atrocious weather conditions, some very important back games influencing promotion and relegation issues in the Credit Union Senior Football League were played over the weekend.

Division 1

There were no outstanding games in Division 1 where Dr Crokes have already clinched a place in the final and the second final place will be decided when Templenoe take on Austin Stacks in the final round of games.
At the other end of the table, Legion and Kenmare are relegated; Kilcummin will need both points against Glenbeigh-Glencar in the final round and hope John Mitchels slip up against Kerins ORahillys to avoid being the third team to go down.

Division 2

In Division 2, An Ghaeltachts victory over Listowel Emmets on Saturday last has put them into second place in the table a point behind leaders Rathmore who return to Division 1 and top the table on 15 points. St Marys are third on 13 points and Spa, who defeated Finuge in a vital back game to both sides last weekend, are just a point behind on 12.
St Marys play Emmets in Round 11 and Emmets, who are on 9 points, have a back game on Wednesday evening against Finuge. An Ghaeltacht are home to Spa in Gallarus in Round 11.
At the other end of Division 2, Finuge, on 5 points, have a game in hand with Emmets on this coming Wednesday evening but finish up against leaders Rathmore while Laune Rangers, beaten by Listry 10 points to 9 last week, seem to be in trouble on 6 points. The Killorglin side will have to beat Glenflesk in their final game and hope the likes of St Michaels/Foilmore (7 Points)and Beaufort (8 Points) do not pick up any points in Round 11.

Division 3
In Division 3, there was a big upset on Sunday when leaders Currow, who needed just one point to go up as champions, were beaten by St Senans who were looking for both points in a bid to avoid relegation. Currow stay on 14 points at the top, St Pats, Annascaul and Ardfert are all on 13 points but Ardfert, who defeated Beale in a back game last week, have a back game with Brosna on Saturday next. The meeting of Annascaul and Ardfert in the final round will have a big bearing on who goes up with Currow.
At the bottom, Tarbert and Beale are already relegated. St Senans move on to 9 points with Brosna who have that game in hand with Ardfert. Ballydonoghue, Beale and Dromid, all on 10 points are not out of the woods yet.

Division 4
In Division 4, the promotion issues have been sorted following two important games on Saturday. In a crunch game in Fossa, the home side, despite being a man down for over 40 minutes, held out to win by a point against promotion chasing Skellig Rangers while Ballymacelligott clinched promotion by defeating joint leaders Na Gaeil by two points. Champions of Division 3 should be decided when Fossa (20 Points) play Na Gaeil (18 Points) In Round 11.
At the other end of the table, Moyvane are already relegated but Valentia, on 2 points, still have a chance as they have a back game to come against Dr Crokes B and a victory there would set up a crunch relegation match in Round 11 against Churchill who are two points better off on 4 points. Renard who are on 6 points are not out of the woods but they play relegated Moyvane in the final round and victory for the South Kerry side in that game would see Moyvane, Valentia and Churchill go down.

Division 5
In Division 5, Castlegregory, following a big victory over Asdee on Saturday are already promoted as champions with 17 points but there is a real dogfight just behind them to see who takes the other two promotion places which look certain to go to playoffs. There are three teams on 14 points Rathmore, Duagh and Tuosist who joined the race for promotion thanks to a big victory over hapless Ballyduff . Sneem-Derrynane, who moved onto 12 points with victory over Knocknagoshel, can join the other three in joint second place should they defeat Ballyduff in a back game next weekend. To make the situation even more intriguing, Rathmore play Duagh in Round 11 with the losers likely to exit the promotion race with three teams likely to finish on 16 points going on form.
The date for the final round of games depends on Kerry seniors progress in the All Ireland championship. If Kerry are defeated by Dublin then Round 11 will be played on Sunday September 4th while a Kerry victory would see the final round of games played on September 25th.

Senior Football League 2016 Div 1
Dr Crokes have clinched a place in the Division 1 final following a comprehensive victory over Templenoe and the second final place will be decided when Templenoe take on Austin Stacks in the final round of games. Stacks,thanks to their victory over Kilcummin, move into second place in the table two points ahead of Templenoe.

At the other end of the table, Glenbeigh-Glencar’s victory over Killarney Legion condemns the Killarney side to the 2nd Division next year and they will be joined by Kenmare, whose victory over O’Rahillys has come too late to save them from the drop. Kilcummin will need both points against Glenbeigh-Glencar in the final round and hope John Mitchels slip up against Rahillys to avoid being the third team to go down.

Senior Football League 2016 Div 2
In Division 2, Rathmore’s victory over fellow promotion hopefuls St Marys sees them promoted to Division 1 with 15 points and St Marys who finish up with a game at home to Emmets, look like joining them on 13 points as do An Ghaeltacht on 12 points, who have a game in hand with Listowel Emmets next weekend, Emmets, who also have another game in hand against Finuge, are on 9 points and cannot be ruled out while Spa, who also have a game in hand with Finuge are 10 points with an outside chance.

There is nothing decided at the bottom where St Michaels Foilmore’s win over An Ghaeltacht has thrown the South Kerry side a lifeline. Finuge are on 5 points with those two games in hand; Laune Rangers, on 6 points, play Listry in their Round 10 game on Tuesday evening needing both points while Listry themselves are just a point better off and also in need of both points. St Michaels Foilmore (7) and Beaufort (8) are not out of the woods yet.

Senior Football League 2016 Div 3
In Division 3, Currow (14 points), who have a back game with St Senans next weekend, can clinch promotion with victory in that game, St Pats and Annascaul are both on 13 points with a game to go, while Ardfert, who have 2 back games with Beale and Brosna, are still very much in the running for promotion, while Gneeveguilla, who have a back game with Dromid next weekend, have an outside chance..
At the bottom, Tarbert are already relegated while Beale will have to win that back game with Ardfert to stay in Division 3 – they finish with a trip to leaders Currow. St Senans (7), Dromid and Brosna (9 each) will all be hoping to win their respective back games to avoid the drop.

Senior Football League 2016 Div 4

In Division 4, long time joint leaders Na Gaeil and Fossa stay top of the table – neither played this weekend but face teams just below them in back games in the coming weeks. Fossa play Skellig Rangers in Fossa next weekend in Round 10 while Na Gaeil travel to Ballymac the following weekend in their back game. Champions of this Division are likely to be decided when Na Gaeil entertain Fossa in the final Round.
Ballymac are on 14 points, 4 behind the leaders while Skellig Rangers are on 12 points with Firies having an outside chance on 11 points with a game in hand on 27th against Scartaglen.

At the bottom, Moyvane are relegated to Division 5 next season while Valentia, who have games in hand against Scartaglen next weekend and Dr Crokes the following weekend, will have to add to their 2 points from those games. Churchill are on 4 points with one game to go, and that is a relegation four pointer with Valentia. Scartaglen are on 5 points with those back games against Valentia and Firies to come.

Senior Football League 2016 Div 5
There are still a number of teams in line for promotion in Division 5 with Castlegregory (15 Points), who have a back game with Asdee next weekend, favourites to go up as champions. Rathmore and Duagh, are tied in second place on 14 points and they meet in the final Round. Tuosist on 12 points, play lowly Ballyduff in a back game next weekend and finish up home to Cromane and they would appear to be favourites to take a promotion spot while Cordal, also on 12, finish up home to Asdee and cannot be ruled out.
