Division 1A & 1B Previews – Gameday 6

Division 1A

Division 1A league leaders Clann Eireann put their unbeaten record on the line when they host Killeavy on Friday. Ruairi Lavery’s side have won all four of their league encounters to date.

The reigning champions saw off Crossmaglen last week while Killeavy overcame Granemore by the minimum. An early goal from sharpshooter Miceal McNamee helped Niall McAleenan’s side to a 1-8 to 0-10 triumph.

Granemore have yet to earn a victory and sit on one-point, picked up from their opening round draw with Madden. Stephen Cusack’s men take on Silverbridge, who are currently unbeaten in the league.

Silverbridge are second in the table with seven points, having won three of their four games. Their most recent outing was two week ago however when they secured a share of the spoils against Madden.

Mark Harte’s men nabbed a one-point win over Dromintee last Friday to secure their first win of the campaign. Patrick Carr, who has been playing great stuff at midfield, claimed their all-important goal.

They remain without the suspended Jamie Sheridan, and they take on Crossmaglen in round six. It’s a repeat of last years Senior Championship semi-final, which Crossmaglen won by six in the end.

The Rangers are currently third in the Division 1A league table, trailing the two teams that have beaten them in Clann Eireann and Silverbridge. They’ll be keen to bounce back from last week’s two-point loss.

Armagh Harps enjoyed a day off last weekend and will hope to be refreshed for the visit of Dromintee. Kieran Quinn’s men lost to Madden in round five and currently trail the Haprs by two-points in the table.

Division 1B

There are a huge two points on offer on Wednesday night as the bottom two in Division 1B face off. Sarsfields lock horns with Ballymacnab and the pair are currently tied at the bottom on three points each.

Eamon McGeown has been in sensational form for the High Moss men having netted in their last three outings. For Ballymacnab, the return of Jack Grugan was huge last week as they picked up their first win against Mullaghbawn.

Last years Division 2A league winners Culloville host St Patrick’s Cullyhanna, the team that earn promotion alongside them last year. Culloville won a fatal clash in the closing stages of the league to help secure the title.

Both sides head into the game off the back of defeats last week. Danny Hughes’ Blues lost to St Peter’s by ten-points while Clan na Gael were six-point winners over Cullyhanna last Friday evening.

Clan na Gael will be keen to back up that result as they host Maghery this weekend. The Clans are currently tied with Mullaghbawn at the top of the league table, with both sitting on seven points.

Maghery sit just below that currently with six points and are in a fine run of form at the minute. Since tasting defeat to Cullyhanna in the opening round, Maghery have now gone on a four-game unbeaten streak.
