Two teams have already exited the JFC and another four will join them after the playoffs coming up this weekend.
Ballyhegan v Clady – Sat 9 Sept – Tullysaran – 2pm
Following their first-round defeat to Thomas Davis, Ballyhegan have really bounced back in style in rounds two and three.
They saw off both Mullabrack and Dorsey with ease to reaffirm their claim as one of the top contenders for the JFC.
They will be without Jack Rafferty for the remainder of the championship however as he is sidelined with a knee injury.
Clady earned an important win over O’Hanlon’s in round three to reach the playoffs and remain in the competition.
Liam Doyle has been their main scorer across the championship while Kieran Connolly hit 2-2 last weekend.
They’ll try to keep the score down at the other end as Ballyhegan carry a big goalscoring threat.
Collegeland v An Port Mor – Sat 9 Sept – Abbey Park – 4pm
How Collegeland recover from their surprising three-point defeat to Lissummon could have a big impact here.
They were expected to top their group and march straight into the last eight, but that’s not how it worked out.
Collegeland only scored 0-5 last Friday evening, so putting up a better showing up top will be the target.
An Port Mor lost both of their group stage games by six-points to Clann Eireann IIs and Eire Og.
The concession of goals the last day out hampered their chances, although they did hit three majors of their own.
Mark Donnelly has hit a personal tally of 3-3 in their two games while Mattie Walsh also hit the net against Eire Og.
Killeavy II v Dorsey – Sun 10 Sept – Silverbridge – 1pm
It’s been two weeks since Killeavy IIs were in action as they were drawn into a group of three with Clonmore and St Michael’s.
Clonmore proved too strong in round one, but Killeavy IIs were brilliant in their last game against Newtown.
They earned an impressive ten-point win and that’ll give them plenty of confidence ahead of the weekend.
Dorsey on the other hand lost quite heavily to Ballyhegan in their final game of the group stages, 3-19 to 0-9.
But they had been in decent form up until that outing, beating Mullabrack and drawing with Thomas Davis.
They’ve yet to hit the net in the championship which may be a concern ahead of the playoffs this weekend.
Eire Og v St Michael’s – Sun 10 Sept – Granemore – 1pm
Eire Og saw off An Port Mor by six-points las weekend to finish second in their group, behind Clann Eireann IIs.
Ciaran Corey has been their main scoring threat so far in the JFC having accounted for 0-10 in two games.
They also hit the net twice last weekend, with Eoin McCluskey and Pauric Mallon both raising green flags.
St Michael’s have hit a poor run of form so far in the championship have lost both of their group games.
Killeavy and Clonmore both rattled the net twice against Newtown, who only struck 0-7 in the two games.
Sean McVerry is still a big miss for Seamus O’Callaghan’s men as he hasn’t featured yet through injury.
