The Club scene kicks into action this weekend as ACL Divisions 1 and 2 commence in the first round of both divisions which has a combined total of 111 games this year. The 12 team Division 1 opens on Sunday at 1pm with a local derby between Bornacoola and Annaduff.
Last years league winners Melvin Gaels take travel to Drumreilly to defend their title. Meanwhile Aughawillan and Ballinamore/Sean O Heslins who were promoted from last years Division 2 face Allen Gaels and Kiltubrid respectively.
Division 2 with 10 teams opens the new season tomorrow afternoon at 4:15pm in Carrick as St. Marys take on the Celebrity Bainisteoirs Dromahaire. The remaining 4 fixtures are scheduled for Sunday afternoon starting at 2pm in most cases.
Aughnasheelin and Carrigallen open their season in division 2 away to Drumkeerin and Aughavas and will no doubt be eager to start their year with the aim of getting back to Division 1. Meanwhile last years Division 3 table toppers Annaduff and Eslin commence their new year in division 2 against Glenfarne/Kilty and Cloone.
