How things stand in Divisions 2 and 3

by Geordie McGuckin

The second division will progress in the same way as the first and the top six sides scheduled to participate in the top section A have been decided with the remainder to take their respective chance in the B section.

St Joseph’s Glenavy have impressed in the second grade thus far and the Chapel Hill residents having concluded the first phase with a 19 point haul and top the ratings.

They only lost on a single occasion thus far when Moneyglass gained a narrow verdict on their sod early in the season but they did continue for the rest of the campaign without defeat.

They will have to travel on four of their outings to come but will probably be hard to beat.

South Belfast based St Brigid’s and Moneyglass concluded on 17 points apiece just the minimum in arrears of the table toppers and will enter the second phase as contenders.

St Brigid’s only have one of their remaining games at home whereas the St Ergnat’s men will have three on their home soil.

 

Glengormley based St Enda’s concluded the first round on 16 points and have three away ties to follow whilst fifth placed Rasharkin and sixth positioned Tir na Nog shared a 12 point total.

Both Rasharkin and the Whitehill men will enjoy home advantage for four of their remaining fixtures.

The outright winner will gain the division two title and together with the runners up will proceed to the top division in 2018.

The fixture list to follow in section A as follows –

In the section B the sides involved will seek to retain status as they will complete a further five games apiece with those berthed in the bottom two places at conclusion will endure the drop and find competition in basement level and division three fare awaits for them next term.

Things can change in the last handful of games but at the present time Ardoyne Kickham’s have only a single point to their credit to date whilst St Comgall’s are on three points a place above the basement dwellers.

All Saint’s, Dunloy and Gort na Mona have 10 points apiece and seem out of harm’s way with Michael Davitt’s on four and too close to the relegation zone for peace of mind.

In Division 3 with just three games remaining until completion Sarsfield’s have secured promotion and the Stewartstown road side look almost certain to take the silverware and the division three title.

The Paddies lead the way in the division with a 28 point haul and three ahead of second placed O’ Donnell’s.

Mc Crory park residents O’ Donnell’s look set to claim promotion having secured 25 points and securing a five point lead over the ailing Glenravel.

The Glensmen have lost their way in the recent past and although they do have a game in hand over O’ Donnell’s the Con Magee’s side may have lost and opportunity.
