Final Round of the Credit Union Senior Football League 2016-08-30 08:20:00

Final Round of the Credit Union Senior Football League
Sunday next will see the final round of the Credit Union senior football league played and while all promotion and relegation issues are unlikely to be sorted, at least the regular rounds of the league will be completed in what must constitute record time and by the last weekend of August, there were no outstanding games to be played before the final round. Some issues have already been decided following a number of back games mid-week last week and at the weekend and on The following is a run -down of the situation in each of the Divisions. All games, with the exception of a few where the results have no bearing on promotion or relegation issues, are to be played on Sunday at the earlier time of 1:30pm to enable patrons to view the All Ireland Hurling Final.

Division 1
Dr Crokes have already clinched a place in the Division 1 final and the second final place will be decided when Templenoe, on home soil, take on Austin Stacks on Sunday.
At the other end of the table, Legion and Kenmare are relegated and the final relegation spot rests between Kilcummin (6 points), who are at home to Glenbeigh/Glencar, and John Mitchels (7 points) who travel to Kerins O’Rahillys.

Division 2
In Division 2, Rathmore are promoted on 15 points and travel to relegated Finuge for their final game; An Ghaeltacht are on 14 points and are home to fourth placed Spa who have 12 points and St Marys are third on 13 points with a final game against Emmets who have a slim chance of staying in the promotion race on 11 points should they win in Cahersiveen.
Listowel Emmets defeated Finuge in a back game on Wednesday of last week so Finuge, with 5 points, drop to Division 3 next season. The final two relegation places rest between Laune Rangers (6 points) who are home to Glenflesk, St Michaels/Foilmore (7 Points) who travel to Waterville and Beaufort (8 Points) who travel to Listry.

Division 3
In Division 3, Ardfert on 15 points, have taken over from Currow at the top of the table following a 16 points to 8 victory over Brosna in a back game last weekend. Currow stay on 14 points while there are two teams on 13 points, St Pats and Annascaul. Three of those four teams will be promoted and the meeting of Annascaul and Ardfert in the final round will have a big bearing on who goes up.
At the bottom, Tarbert and Beale are already relegated. St Senans and Brosna are on 9 points while Ballydonoghue, Keel and Dromid, all on 10 points, are not out of the woods yet. The big game of the final round as far as relegation is concerned will be the meeting of St Senans and Keel

Division 4
In Division 4, the promotion issues have already been confirmed with Fossa, Na Gaeil and Ballymacelligott all promoted to Division 3 next season. The champions of Division 3 should be decided when Fossa (20 Points) play Na Gaeil (18 Points).
At the other end of the table, Moyvane and Valentia are relegated following Valentia’s defeat by Dr Crokes last weekend in a back game. The final relegation place rest between Churchill, who are on 6 points and are home to Valentia in the final round, and Renard who have 8 points and travel to Moyvane on the final day.

Division 5

In Division 5, Castlegregory 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 four teams on 14 points – Rathmore, Duagh, Tuosist and Sneem/Derrynane who received a w.o. from Ballyduff last weekend.
To make the situation even more intriguing, Rathmore play Duagh in Round 11 and it’s very likely you will see three teams on 16 points fighting for the 2 remaining places in a playoff.
