Division 2A & 2B Previews – Gameday 7

Division 2A

The Division 2A action gets underway on Thursday evening this week as Tullysaran lock horns with Pearse Og. Both teams head into the game in good form having racked up three-point wins in their most recent outings.

Tullysaran overcame Annaghmore two weeks ago while Pearse Og handed Carrickcruppen their first defeat of the campaign. The Ogs have won two of their last three games and currently sit on six points.

It’s all to play for on Friday night as league leaders Carrickcruppen and St Paul’s, both tied on eight points, go head-to-head. Carrickcruppen will be stung by their last outing as they suffered their first loss of 2024.

Barry Flynn’s side have won three of their six league clashes and will have home advantage this weekend. St Paul’s on the other hand have lost two games but did earn an eye-catching win last week.

Goals from Odhran Magill and Antoin McParland (2) helped them see off Keady, bouncing back from a round five defeat to Shane O’Neill’s. Ronan Clarke’s men can climb to the top of the table with a win.

Shane O’Neill’s have had a fairly up and down season so far but did collect two wins before last week’s loss to Annaghmore. There was only one point between the sides, so Shane’s can take heart from that display.

They will have home advantage on Friday night when they take on Keady. Both sides enter the contest off the back of recent losses so both will look to grab the two-points on offer this weekend.

Annaghmore are on six points, along with the Ogs and Keady, and they take on Grange on Friday evening. Chris Rafferty’s side have suffered four defeats on the trot and will hope their fortunes turn soon.

Division 2B

It’s top against bottom in Division 2B this weekend as league leaders Belleek take on Crossmaglen IIs. Belleek have won all six of their outings, while the Rangers have yet to pick up any points.

Belleek have been in brilliant form and have rattled off five goals in the last two games, a certain concern for Cross. Crossmaglen conceded six goals in their last outing, so tightening up the defence will be key.

Clann Eireann IIs put those six goals past the men in black and amber, but only scored 0-7 against Belleek last week. They are back in action on Friday evening as they welcome Whitecross to Lurgan.

A number of last years Junior Championship winning team are still available for selection and Clann Eireann IIs currently have five points from six games and sit just one point behind third place Whitecross.

Wolfe Tones lead the chasing pack in second place and they head to Clonmore on Friday night. The Tones, who will be without Caolan Skelton for the next few weeks, have only lost one game.

Clonmore on the other hand have yet to win one and sit on a single point due to their round two draw with Tir na nOg. Brendan Donaghy’s side have been hugely competitive however and will pose a stiff test on home soil.
