Division 3A & 3B Previews – Gameday 11

Division 3A

Forkhill are at the top of the Division 3A league table and are in fantastic form having won their last six encounters. The last game they lost was to An Port Mor back in April and they take on that same side this weekend.

Not only have they been winning their recent ties, Forkhill have rattled off 14 goals in their last six games. An Port Mor, who are currently midtable, are currently on a losing streak of three games.

Middletown join Forkhill at the top of the pile and they travel to Collegeland on Friday evening. Middletown have won their last three games while Collegeland drew their most recent encounter with Ballyhegan.

That means Ballyhegan remain in the race for promotion, and they are on the road against St Michael’s this week. Last year’s beaten JFC finalists have only won once in their last five games and will be keen to improve that record.

Lissummon are currently at the bottom of Division 3A, and they take on Eire Og, who sit in fifth position. The Craigavon men are in decent form have only lost one game of their last five outings.

Division 3B

The Division 3B league is now split after the halfway stage, with Thomas Davis, St Peter’s II, Dorsey and Redmond O’Hanlon’s in Division 3B1. That leaves Clady, Killeavy II, Madden II, Mullabrack and Killean in Division 3B2.

O’Hanlon’s host St Peter’s IIs on Friday evening and the pair faced off recently, with the Lurgan men winning by six. That was one of seven league victories that St Peter’s strung together.

Redmond O’Hanlon’s have won two of their last three league ties since that defeat, although they lost to Dorsey last week. They’ll be keen to get back to winning ways this weekend, especially on home turf.

Thomas Davis are the only unbeaten team across Junior divisions and they are on the road this weekend. The league leaders travel to Dorsey on Friday evening, who have won five of their eight games.

In the other Division 3B2 game on Friday night, Killean have home advantage when they take on Clady. Peter Beagan’s side beat Killean when the sides clashes in the first round and Killean are still searching for their first points.

Forkhill are at the top of the Division 3A league table and are in fantastic form having won their last six encounters.
