Division 2A & 2B Previews – Gameday 11

Division 2A

There’s still plenty to play for at both ends of the Division 2A league table, with promotion and relegation spots still up for grabs. St Paul’s currently lead the way at the top as they have 13-points to their name.

Ronan Clarke’s men are on home turf this weekend as they take on his own club of Pearse Og, a side he won a SFC medal with back in 2009. St Paul’s were two-point winners when these sides clashed back in April.

Carrickcruppen are leading the chasing pack but have won only one of their last five league encounters. They suffered a one-point defeat to Tullysaran last week and they take on Annaghmore on Friday.

Annaghmore, who have lost their last three league outings, are joined on six-points at the bottom of the table with Grange and Tullysaran. Dessie McCormack’s side can ease relegation fears with a win this weekend.

Tullysaran bolstered their chances of remaining in the division with a surprising victory over Carrickcruppen. They’ll hope to back that up once again this weekend when they take on Shane O’Neill’s away from home.

Grange are on the road as they take on Keady and they’ll have to do so without Daire Mallon and Justin Kieran. Their two sharpshooters have jetted off to America for the summer. Keady’s James O’Hara is also in America with QUB, so will miss this game.

Division 2B

Belleek suffered their first defeat of the Division 2B campaign when they lost out to Derrynoose last weekend. They were without their main man Callum O’Neill, and they take on Wolfe Tones this weekend.

Peter Nugent’s side, who sit in second place, six-points behind Belleek, will have home advantage on Friday. They are currently on a winless streak of four games however, having drawn two and lost two of their last four.

Derrynoose head into their clash with Whitecross full of confidence after last week’s win over the table toppers. Conor McNally’s return to the field has been a huge boost to Paul Hagan’s side.

Whitecross currently sit sixth in the league table and just one-point behind Derrynoose. They draw with Clonmore last weekend and Clonmore travel to Clann Eireann IIs on Friday evening.

Clann Eireann IIs suffered an 11-point defeat at the hands of Tir na nOg in their last outing and will be keen to bounce back. They’re currently third in the table and still have a real chance of going up.

Tir na nOg take on Crossmaglen IIs on Friday, who have yet to win a single game in the division. The Rangers have one-point to show for their efforts, thanks to a 2-7 to 1-10 draw with Wolfe Tones last week.
