Round Up of SFL after Round 11 (Final Round ) 2014 2014-11-09 20:54:00

Credit Union Senior Football League Promotion/Relegation Roundup

Sunday last saw the final round of games in four of the five Divisions and as usual, the final touches have yet to be put to some of the promotion and relegation issues.
Division 1:
Austin Stacks and Dr Crokes will meet in the Division 1 final and the point gained by Austin Stacks in that local derby with Kerins O’Rahillys was enough to see the Rockies top the table and secure home advantage for the final.
At the bottom, Currow were already doomed to Division 2 football next season and they are joined by Rathmore and Listowel Emmets following Milltown Castlemaine’s victory over Dingle which secured the Mid Kerry side their Division 1 status.
Division 2:
The promotion places had already been filled prior to the final round with Killarney Legion being promoted as champions and they are joined by Glenbeigh-Glencar and Desmonds, both of whom are promoted for the second year in a row.
At the bottom, St Pats were already relegated and they are joined in Division 3 next year by Listry and Skellig Rangers with Kenmare’s narrow victory over Skellig Rangers in Portmagee being a crucial result in the fight to avoid the drop.
Division 3:
There is a full round of fixtures yet to be played in Division 3 due to the fact that there was an outstanding back game between Keel and Ardfert that was crucial to the eventual placings. Keel, by virtue of their victory over Ardfert, have secured their Division 3 status and with Brosna, Ardfert, Lispole and Dromid still involved in various county and provincial championships, it is anybody’d guess as to when that final round of games will be played in this Division.
At present, Templenoe, with 19 points, are already promoted as champions with St Marys in second place on 14 points, Glenflesk on 13 and Brosna on 12. At the other end of the table, Scartaglen are already relegated to Division 4, Dromid Pearses are in a precarious position on 7 points and Lispole, Ballymac and An Ghaeltacht are all on 8 points. Certainly, there is still a lot to play for in this Division.
Division 4:
Na Gaeil went into the final round as Division 4 Champions and their place in Division 3 next year secured and they are joined by Beale. There are three teams level on 14 points so Castlegregory, Fossa and Cordal will have to face a playoff to decide who gets the third spot.
At the bottom, Knocknagoshel and Ballyduff were already relegated and they are joined by Ballylongford whose win on Sunday last was not enough to secure safety.
Division 5: Dr Crokes on 18 points and St Senans a point behind are both promoted with a game in hand against Moyvane and Sneem-Derrynane respectively while Ballydonoghue and Renard, who played out a thrilling draw on Sunday last, have finished level on points for the third promotion place and will have to playoff.
The CCC are due to meet on Monday night to make fixtures for the outstanding fixtures in the League.
