Critical Penultimate Round of Senior Football League
The Credit Union senior football league has reached the critical penultimate round and after all the championship excitement last weekend it’s back to the bread and butter of gaining vital promotion or relegation points.

In Division 1, Dr Crokes (17 Points) are already assured of a final place and on home soil but who their opponents will be is still in the mix. Desmonds are in second place on 13 points but have only one game to play while Austin Stacks and Legion are well place a point behind the Castleisland side. At the other end of the table, both Finuge and St Michaels-Foilmore are already relegated but who will join them in Division 2 next year? Kilcummin are on 6 points, Waterville on 7 and Dingle are on 8 points as we head into the final two games. The games between Dingle and Glenbeigh-Glencar and Milltown and Kerins O’Rahillys are off due to championship games.

In Division 2, Templenoe are top on 14 points closely followed by a threesome on 13 points, Rathmore, John Mitchels and Spa while Kenmare are on 12 and with three fixtures postponed in this Division due to championship games, it will be a while yet before a clear picture emerges. At the bottom, Tarbert are on 2 points, Currow on 4, Laune Rangers on 5 and Gneeveguilla on 6 and the meeting of Currow and Templenoe this weekend will surely seal the fate of one of these two sides. The John Mitchels/Glenflesk, Gneeveguilla/St Marys and Rathmore/Spa games are postponed.

In Division 3 Beaufort are top on 14 points followed by Annascaul on 13 and both Gaeltacht and Listry on 11 each. At the other end of the table, Na Gael are on 4 points, Beale and Skellig Rangers are on 6 and Ballymacelligott are on 7. All games go ahead in this Division.

In Division 4, Ballydonoghue continue to set the pace on 14 points followed by St Senans on 12, Scartaglen on 11 and Dromid on 10 while at the other end of the table, Cordal are in trouble on 4 points with Cromane just a point better off and Castlegregory and Firies, who meet in a four pointer this weekend, are on 8 points. The top versus bottom game in Cordal between the homeside and Ballydonoghue could see both sides in different divisions nest season. The Scartaglen/Dr Crokes game does not go ahead due to the Club Championship Final.

In Division 5, all three promotion places could well be confirmed this weekend. Valentia top the table on 15 points followed by Renard and Moyvane on 14 while there is a gap then to Sneem/Derrynane and Asdee on 10 points. The meeting of Renard and Valentia this weekend is the big game in this Division.
