Division 2A & 2B Previews – Gameday 10

Division 2A

Ronan Clarke’s St Paul’s are at the top of the Division 2A league table, but they aren’t in action this week. That gives Carrickcruppen the chance to jump to the top of the leaderboard as they take on Tullysaran.

Tullysaran, with former goalkeeper Pauric McGlone now in charge, are currently more concerned with the other end of the table as they’re bottom on four-points. They’ve lost their last three league clashes on the bounce and will be eager to get a win under their belts.

Carrickcruppen’s form has been a little shaky, although they only lost one game all season. Barry Flynn’s men have won just one game in their last four outings and will want to improve that record.

Pearse Og are on ten-points in third place, and they’ll have home advantage against Shane O’Neill’s on Friday. Garreth Thorton’s men have only lost once on home ground this season, and that was to table toppers St Paul’s.

Shane O’Neill’s head into the game off the back of last week’s 2-14 each draw with neighbours Carrickcruppen. They’ll be buoyed by the fact that they beat the Ogs when they last met in the league.

Also on Friday night, Annaghmore welcome Keady to their home patch. Dessie McCormack’s side have lost their last two games, while Keady ended their only losing streak last week against Tullysaran.

Division 2B

Clann Eireann IIs will hope to keep their winning run going when they take on Tir na nOg on Thursday. The Lurgan lads have won four of their last five games and having been hitting the net regularly.

2021 SFC winners Declan Leathem and Ryan Henderson have been lining out for Clann Eireann IIs in recent weeks. Tir na nOg have been in great shape themselves, having won their last three games.

Belleek are seven-points clear at the top of the Division 2B league table and they travel to Derrynoose on Friday. Derrynoose overcame Crossmaglen IIs last weekend, with former Derrygonnelly and Fermanagh defender Danny Ward starring at centre half back.

Belleek have been unbelievable in front of goals throughout the campaign, rattling off 14 majors in their nine games. Callum O’Neill has been at the forefront of that success, having hit four goals in their last three games.

Cross IIs and Wolfe Tones lock horns on Friday evening and both move into the game after recent defeats. The Tones remain in second place but have only picked up a single point from their last three outings.

Clonmore remain in the relegation zone on two-points and have lost both of their most recent league outings. They travel to Whitecross this weekend, who lost out to Belleek in round nine by the minimum of margins.
