Football Fixtures and Previews

(Sunday 13th June)

Another round of football fixtures on a Sunday afternoon with games scheduled in all of the divisions.

Division One (all games at 3.00pm)

Lamh Dhearg v St Gall’s

Lamh Dhearg have had a poor start to the season and they were found wanting when they visited Portglenone on Wednesday evening last.

They return to their home base in this one as they welcome St Gall’s to Hannahstown.

St Gall’s have proved a little enigmatic in their form thus far but the Milltown men cannot be under estimated and they may well take the points.

St Mary’s Ahoghill v Casement’s Portglenone

On all form shown this term Casement’s should start as firm favourites in this one as they travel up the road to Cloney.

This is a local derby however and in such form often counts for little.

Ahoghill have as yet to collect a point this term but they did hint at improvement last time at Rossa and they may well cause problems aplenty for their near neighbours and a draw with a share of the spoils a possibility.

St Enda’s Glengormley v O’ Donavan Rossa

Rossa continue to lead the way in the ratings and the Shaw’s road side will take the trip up to Glengormley in the positive.

They continued in winning ways last time with a win over the visiting Ahoghill and will hope to keep that good run going.

St Enda’s have only a single win this season and although the Hightown residents are capable of much better the present climate would suggest an away win.

Erin’s Own Cargin v Aghagallon

Cargin continued in winning form last time when they defeated St Gall’s at Milltown.

That was a good result for the Erin’s Own outfit and they return to home base here as Aghagallon visit.

Aghagallon have a couple of wins under their belts in 2021 but the St Mary’s men failed to cope with visitors Creggan last time and a b ig improvement would be required if are to get the better of the county champions this time.

Kickham’s Creggan v Gort na Mona

Gort na Mona under the watchful eyes of Niall ward have hinted at improvement this term but this looks a tough one for the west Belfast men as they visit Creggan.

The Kickham’s men impressed with a good win over Aghagallon last time out and they should continue in winning form again.

St John’s v St Brigid’s

St Johns have had to research the strength and depth of their panel in the present rules and the Corrigan men are proving a trifle enigmatic in performances as result.

They did add a couple of points last time out when they proved too strong for Aghagallon and will look for a similar return here as St Brigid’s visit.

St Brigid’s have lost only once this season but they will have to be at their best if they are to get the points in Corrigan.

Division Two (all games at 3.00pm)

Michael Davitt’s v Cuchullian’s Dunloy

Dunloy are another side who are being asked to research strength and depth of the panel, and they have no points to date.

They will travel up to the West of Belfast to meet up with Davitt’s in more hope than confidence.

Davitt’s have been inconsistent but at their best they can gain the points.

Kickham’s Ardoyne v St Paul’s

Reigning junior champs Ardoyne did well to share the points with the visiting Moneyglass men last time out.

That was a good performance from the North Belfast men and confidence will be high as they look forward to the visit of St Paul’s.

St Paul’s finished strongly with two late goals to snatch a draw with All Saints last time out and this one looks too close to call.

Con Magees Glenravel v St Joseph’s Glenavy

Con Magees are performing well this term and remain second in the ratings just behind front runners Tir na nOg.

The Glensmen have suffered a single defeat in a positive campaign to date and they will await the visit of Glenavy in confidence.

Glenavy have struggled thus far but the Chapel Hill side are more than capable of improvement and they may cause the home side problems but ground advantage may tilt the balance in favour of the Con Magees.

Tir na nOg Randalstown v St James Aldergrove

This one is possibly a candidate for match of the day as top of the table Tir na nOg play hosts to the men from Crumlin as third placed Aldergrove visit Whitehill.

The Randalstown men remain unbeaten to date and they will hope to retain the winning habit.

Aldergrove lost to Moneyglass at Marrian Hill by Moneyglass and they will need to show improvement if they are to get the better of the Whitehill side.

St Teresa’s v St Ergnat’s Moneyglass

Moneyglass had to dig deep to gain a share of the points with Ardoyne last time and the St Ergnat’s men face another test as they visit St Teresa’s.

The home side have lost a couple of time this year and although Liam Mc Goldrick’s charges are more than capable a win for Moneyglass looks probable.

Division Three (all games at 3.00pm)

Cardinal O’ Donnell’s v St Agnes

The Aggies have been faring well this term but this does look a tough one as they travel over to McCrory Park to play O’ Donnell’s with the home side given the nod.

Patrick Pearses v Mc Quillan’s Ballycastle

North Belfast side Pearses have had a couple of good results with their win over Rasharkin the pick and they will start as favouritesto add another brace in this one as they play hosts to McQuillan’s.

Laochra Loch Lao v St Patrick’s Lisburn

Lisburn based St Patrick’s are faring well this year with just a single defeat and they will travel into Belfast to meet Laochra Loch Lao as strong favourites.

St Comgall’s Antrim v St Mary’s Rasharkin

This all South West affair sees the Dreen men travel up to Dunsilly to meet the in form St Comgall’s in what should be a close one with a draw a possibility.

Eire Og v St Malachy’s

Both sides have struggled for form in 2021 with poor results from respective efforts but it may well be the turn of the Mal’s to make a mark on the table.
