Although there are a few games still to play, places in the semi-final of the Reserve Football Shield are more or less decided with All Saints win over Moneyglass last night in Group 1 and Glenavy’s victory over St. Paul’s in Group 2 at Shaw’s Road securing both side’s semi-final places.
All Saints join Dunloy on 8 points but the Cuchullain’s have played a game less and recorded home and away wins over the Ballymena side so they top the group.
Glenavy join Tir na nOg on 8 points each from 5 games with their remaining game against each other at Chapel Hill deciding who will top the group.
Reserve Football Cup
Places in the Reserve Football Cup look a little more complicated and with a number of games still to be played there are still places up for grabs.
Erin’s Own Cargin look home and dry in Group 2 with 5 wins from 5 starts and barring slipups in the run in they should top the group. Creggan sit in second place, 4 points behind Cargin but play their neighbours at home in the run in and Rossa away in their final game and the second place race should be between these two.
In Group 1 Roger Casement’s lead the race with 12 points from 7 starts with Lamh Dhearg in second place on 10 points from 6 starts. St. Gall’s sit third and have 8 points from 5 games played but have home games against the top two in the run in of fixtures so who qualifies could go down to the last game in the group.
