Credit Union Senior Football League reaches the half way stage

Following the playing of Round 5 last weekend the Credit Union senior football league has reached the critical half way stage with Round 6 down for decision this coming weekend. Because of the Kerry v Tipperary Munster football championship match on Sunday,  all games have been fixed for Saturday as the usual Sunday default date does not apply on this occasion.

In Division 1 there are four teams tied on 7 points at the top – two of those, Desmonds and Killarney Legion, meet in Castleisland while the other two, Dr Crokes (home to Kerins O’Rahillys) and Milltown (away to Kilcummin) take on teams just two points behind them. At the other end of the table there is a relegation 4 pointer in Finuge where the locals on 2 points take on a resurgent St Michaels Foilmore who prop up the table with no points.

There are 2 back games in this Division with Dingle playing Dr Crokes on 20th June and Waterville home to Kenmare on  the following day, both Round 5 games.

In Division 2, Leaders John Mitchels (9 Pts) travel to Rathmore who share second spot with Kenmare on 7 points. Kenmare themselves are also involved in a big local derby when Templenoe visit on Saturday evening  with Templenoe just a point adrift of their neighbours.C urrow, who are pointless, entertain Gneeveguilla who have 2 points but with 2 games in hand while Tarbert, also on 2 points, travel to Spa who are mid table on 5 points.

There are 4 back games in this Division: Round 5 Gneeveguilla V Rathmore is on 3rd July; Round 6 Emmets V St Marys is on 19th July and there are two Round 4 games to be fixed; Emmets V Gneeveguilla and Tarbert V Templenoe.

In Division3 , Beaufort top the table on 9 points followed by Keel on 8, Annascaul on 7 and Listry and St Pats on 6 each. The top two travel to teams struggling at the bottom of the table on 2 points. Beaufort are home to Ardfert who have a game in hand while Keel are away to An Ghaeltacht who have 2 games in hand. The other two bottom teams meet teams sharing 4th place on the table with 6 points; Skellig Rgs are home to St Pats and Beale travel to Listry.

Back games in this Division see An Ghaeltacht take on Brosna in a Round 1 game on 21st June and An Ghaeltacht travelling to Ardfert for a Round 5 game on 8th August.

In Division 4, the top 3 teams, who are all on 6 points, face teams just two points below them; Scartaglen are home to Fossa, Dromid are home to Cordal and Castlegregory travel to Churchill so there could be plenty of change there by Saturday evening. Two of the three teams on 5 points, Ballydonoghue and Dr Crokes clash, while the third, Firies, are home to Cromane who are struggling on two points. Still, just 4 points separates the top and bottom teams in this Division.

Among the back games in this Division are the Round 5 game Ballydonoghue V Churchill on 8th August and Dromid Pearses V Firies from Round 4.

In Division 5, the top two teams, Valentia (9) and Duagh(7) were due to meet but that game goes back to 9th August, third placed Moyvane have a bye and Sneem-Derrynane who share third place on 6 points, are home to Renard.

Back games in this Division include the Round 5 local derby meeting of Asdee and Ballylongford on 20th June, Renard V Austin Stacks on 12th July from Round 7, and two Round 4 games involving Ballylongford and Renard and Moyvane V Tuosist.
