This years Minor A Championship Final (15 aside) will be contested by St Francis and St Marys. The eagerly awaited final will be the curtain raiser to the Senior Championship Final in Pairc Sean on Sunday September 26th. St Francis topped the group of six with 9 points (4 wins/1 draw) while St Marys were group runners-up on 7 points (3 wins/1 defeat/1 draw). When the two teams met in the group stages they could not be separated drawing 1-10 apiece so the final is sure to be a close affair.
This weekend the quarter finals of the GWP Junior A Championship takes center stage. On Saturday evening Gortletteragh face Leitrim Gaels in Cloone while Ballinamore SOH make the short journey to Aughnasheelin to take on North Leitrim opponents Drumkeerin. Meanwhile the Fenagh club grounds will host the meeting between Allen Gaels and Carrigallen. Throw in times for the three Saturday evening games as per the fixtures section on this website (please ignore times in the Leitrim Observer as late alterations had to be made owing to clashes with Ladies Football Fixtures). On Sunday Pairc Sean will host the last quarter final between Eslin and Melvin Gaels at 2pm.
While the first team clubs of Eslin and Leitrim Gaels are hotly tipped to advance the other teams will hope they can produce match winning performances. Interestingly, Drumkerrin are the only club with a team left in the higher grade as all the rest have seen their teams exit either the Intermediate or Senior Championships.
The Junior A relegation semi finals sees Bornacoola take on St Marys and Annaduff versus Mohill. The group stages of the GWP Junior B Championship continues this weekend. May the best teams win.
