Castletown – Gusserane Match Prediction | 13-10-2019 10:15

Subs. Castletown: Anthony Masterson; Marc Halpin (0-1), Joe Gardiner, Joe Ahearne; Frank Roche, Richard Farrell (0-1), Conor Cleary; Danny Gardiner (capt., 1-1), Colin Kennedy (0-1); Pierce Maxwell, Colm Morris (1-0), Donnacha Holmes (1-4); Stephen Maloney (0-1), Andy Merrigan (0-3, 1 free), Jody O'Shaughnessy (0-1). - James Holmes (0-1) for Maxwell (42), Risterd Kinsella for Kennedy, black card (53), also Niall Hempenstall, Gavin Stamp, Robbie Brooks, Aaron Condren, Stephen Gardiner.

The pick for me is Gorey vs. Ferns. Shels, Martin's and Rapps to win the other three. FernsGlynn Barntown vs. Weirdly, Shels are the only team across both codes in senior to be unbeaten in the group stages, with the symmetrical record of five wins and five losses. St.Martin'sRathnure vs. The two Inter A QF's at the same venue today were interesting in their own way. Mellows were very impressive, and just looked fitter, hungrier and better prepared than Tara Rocks. Both sides went full pelt which was refreshing, although it could have repercussions for Shels as Cash got sent off on a straight-red. Craanford weren't really capitalising on the man advantage until they were given a dubious penalty, and they drew level with another goal in injury time. They won it fairly well in extra-time after anyway, and are the only team from their group to make the semis. Should be a humdinger between two attack-minded teams that would be worth going to see. RappareesSome attractive pairings there. St.Anne'sNaomh Eanna vs. Stephen Moloney, Rory Heffernan and Yusuf Frih up front all stood out. Camped out in Monamolin for the two double-headers.Nothing out of the ordinary with the first game on Saturday only that it was the most dead-rubbery of games you would see. Naomh Eanna and Shelmaliers afterwards was a right game though between two sides I expect to be in the shake-up when all is said and done. The Inter A championship is wide open now though after today's results.Shelmaliers vs. The scoreboard was incorrect though, and many thought that Craanford were a point up, and Jack Hobbs, who scored 0-18 on the day, missed a straight-forward free that would have snuck it for Ballygarrett in normal time. Gorey were missing the holidaying Mac, and you could see his absence up front as their forwards only managed 1-2 from play (the goal coming after only five minutes or so). Hobbs was the best player on the pitch, while I have been impressed with Tom Sinnott every time I have seen him play. Shels were down Brian Malone and Banville only came on right at the end, but I was impressed by their point-taking from long-range, and how they sprayed the ball around. They took some nice scores, and while a couple of their goals were fortunate, they definitely deserved to win with a bit to spare. Ballygarrett were eight up, but got a man sent off on a straight red. Ballygarrett-Craanford was peculiar in that the first forty minutes of the game were uneventful, but the rest of the game was insane.

On a side note what went wrong with them this year, not far away from a county final appearance last year and now they have one game to save there senior status. Doesnt look good for a team with good hurlers all over the field and for the club itself after having a great win in the All Ireland Junior B down in limerick in February. Any reports from anyone at the senior/Intermediate games over the weekend? just following on twitter and i must commend some of the clubs for there fantastic twitter updates for people (like myself) who couldnt make the games over the weekend.Ferns looked to have had a good win against the harriers aswell they seem to be tacking on a few results at the right stage of the year.Another team looking like dark horses are the Rapps, big score put up on the Annes the weekend.Who is in the relegation final alongside Oylgate?

Weekend hurling predictions-Senior:Gorey v shels- normal circumstances would be game of the weekend but turns out to be only complete dead rubber, shels seem to have growing injury list so I'd imagine they won't be risking anyone with knocks etc.

Kings of the castle

Ferns v harriers-Again will be very close, think Ferns though to win by 3. Fethard v martins-Sale as Wexico above, Martins to win by 8. Senior:Gorey v shels- As said above dead rubber but would expect Gorey to come through. Cloughbawn v adamstown- Cloughbawn to win and Adamstown to finish 5th. Glynn v Oulart- Oulart to win by 3, Glynn rely on two many frees, Oulart find it easier to score. James strugglin with important players injured, Askamore seem to be going better, expect them to win. Rathnure v oilgate- With Podge back should give them the edge to get through, will be tight all the way though as I was very impressed with Rathnures forwards earlier in the year. Taghmon v bunclody- Bunclody to win by 5, Taghmon to be in relegation final,. Will hesitantly go for Oylegate. Monageer v cushinstown- Form says Cushinstown but very poor against Ballymurn, think Monageer could win. Annes v Rapps- Feel Rapps should win this, give them a 4 point win. Alley v Ballymurn: In what well could be both finalists come the end of the year, think Alley should get the win but only just. Blackwater v shamrocks- blackwater should win, Shamrock already in relegation. Intermediate:Askamore v st james- St.

Subs. - Tom Foran for A.

Wide open championship nowYou could easily make a case for any of the eight teams to win it from here. Another club fighting firm on two fronts and will have to play above par to beat St Martins in the quarter finalHoreswood - As last years intermediate champions they were always assured of reaching the quarter finals, can they follow St James, Glynn Barntown and Kilanerin in making it to at least the semi-finals in their first season back in the top championship. Have two very good scoring forwards and free takers in Bealin and Brosnan, should beat Horeswood but the Woodies have two similar players in Myler and Banville. Very interesting contest awaits v Castletown will be underdogs but have the scoring power to hurt the Gorey district menGusserane - Had their backs to the wall in the final group game v St Martins and came up with their best display in championship so far, have won two out of three since the championships restarted after the intercounty break and are going to give the county champions all sorts of problems in the quarter finals. Could easily take Glynn Barntown in the quarter finals Starlights - Have bags of potential as was seen when they were crowned champions two years ago, however losing players to other sports at this time of the year may hurt them. Glynn Barntown - My prediction at the start of the year was for Glynn Barntown to win the championship and I can still see them doing that, they have a very interesting quarter final ahead v St James, suspensions may hurt Glynn from the final round of the group St James - were fast out of the blocks this year in hurling and football but missing a number of players have struggled since the break. St Martin's - probably favorites to win it if they really go at it for the next few weeks but mixing hurling and football has been there problem but if anyone is to do what St Annes did then St Martin's are the team Shelmaliers - Been a long time since someone retained their title and previous year winners have a serious habit of losing the quarter final the following year, they will be favorites to beat Gusserane but with everyone fit and on the field Gusserane are quiet capable of winning again Castletown - Their Achilles heel in recent years has been getting into finals and converting league form into the knock out championships. however they seem to be getting some people back from the treatment table at the right time.

Madness.Was at the Patrick's Park game, and while Shels showed great spirit to force parity deep into injury-time, its hard to gauge where the champions are it. I thought Aron Kehoe done well for Glynn and he has really stepped up to the plate this year. Glynn looked to be securing top spot when leading at HT and into injury-time, only for the game to get fractious and dis-jointed as Shels eked out a draw. AJ Lehane and Nolan were big losses. They were strong in the tackle and probably better set-up in the backs, and John Leacy was a pivot at centre-back as usual. Anne's looked to have knocked Horeswood out too with a late goal, but a winning point puts the Woodies into the quarter-finals and sees Fethard miss out despite starting the night in second place in the table! And for all their ability to carry the ball forward in waves, they were repeatedly left exposed through the middle-Glynn could have conceivably found the net at least twice more.Brian Malone and Simon Donohoe got through a lot of hard-work for Shels, and Eoin Doyle linked the play well up front. McCabe was off-colour, although it must be noted that Doyle pulled off a great save from his penalty. They have now drawn three games in a row and haven't won a game since April, and seemed a bit too lateral in their approach play tonight. Thankfully that scenario never materalised as both Fintans and Bunclody went through the motions to fulfill their fixtures and were not overly concerned where they finished in the top four.Absolutely crazy night in the senior though.

The second-half signalled the welcome return to competitive action of Barry O'Connor after injury, with Dylan Furlong also being introduced at the break as Mikey Dwyer and Robbie Brooks were rested. Only the top-two from the group advance. Subs: Richie Waters (Fethard) for Peter Barry (21 inj); Barry O'Connor (St. And St. Martin's), Darragh Lyons (St. James'); Kyle Firman (St. Martin's flyer O'Connor announced his comeback when resuming the scoring with a neat point as Wexford stretched ahead by 2-7 to 1-5 after 37 minutes after further additions from Sen Nolan (free) and Kyle Firman. Wexford now host Dublin on June 16th when they will be hoping that Longford can round off the campaign with victory over Westmeath to aid the chances of Brendan Kehoe's purple-and-gold making the knock-out stages. Indeed, Wexford 'keeper Meegan had to thwart Longford wing-back Cillian Lee with a smart save at the expense of a '45, which was converted to narrow the gap to 3-9 to 2-8 midway through the half. But Longford snapped back with a second personal goal from Joe Kelly on 45 minutes to keep things interesting. Martin's, 0-4), Mikey Dwyer (Fethard, 0-1), Robbie Brooks (Castletown, 1-0); Cathal Devereux (Our Lady's Island, 0-1), Jamie Meyler (Horeswood, 0-2), Sen Nolan (Horeswood, 0-2 frees). Wexford's under-20 footballers have kept themselves in the hunt for qualification for the Leinster championship quarter-finals by virtue of Bank Holiday Monday afternoon's second-round Group 1 victory over Longford at sun-baked Innovate Wexford Park. But Wexford assured themselves of maintaining a live interest in qualification courtesy of clinching points from Ivan Meegan (2 frees), Cathal Devereux together with Kyle Firman's third and fourth personal scores. Longford made a lively start to gain a fourth-minute breakthrough when Joe Kelly angled a drive to the Clonard-end net to generate a 1-2 to 0-2 lead. Wexford Ivan Meegan (Ferns St. But Wexford soon got to grips and turned the tables by 2-3 to 1-2 after 18 minutes as Mikey Dwyer put Robbie Brooks through to find the town-end net in the 13th-minute, before goalie Ivan Meegan buried an 18th-minute penalty won by Gavin Sheehan Longford twice threatened for goals, but they kept the game in the melting pot at half-time when closing to within 2-4 to 1-5. Martin's, 1-1) for Mikey Dwyer (half-time); Dylan Furlong (Sarsfields) for Robbie Brooks (half-time); Sam Wall (Gusserane) for Sen Nolan (51); John Dunne (HWH-Bunclody) for Darragh Lyons (56); also, Ian Hawkins (Monageer-Boolavogue), Luke Sinnott (Taghmon-Camross), Cathal Walsh (Monageer-Boolavogue), David O'Keeffe (Taghmon-Camross). Dublin beat Westmeath 2-16 to 1-13 in the other round-two fixture that afternoon to leave the table with one round of games to go now reading: Dublin 4-points (+22); Wexford 2-points (+4); Westmeath 2-points (-3); Longford 0-points (-23). Barry O'Connor then added a glorious mark to his return to action when poking to the Clonard-end net on 42 minutes from a rebound after Dylan Furlong had forced a save (3-8 to 1-7). Aidan's, 1-2, 1-0 penalty, 0-2 frees); Frank Roche (Castletown), Mark O'Neill (Gusserane), Quinn Saunders (Our Lady's Island); Gavin Sheehan (Gusserane), Ronan Devereux (Crossabeg-Ballymurn), Martin O'Connor (HWH-Bunclody); Peter Barry (St.

Leinster Senior Club Football Championship[edit]

Literally a copy and paste job. But there is so much advertisement throughout the booklet anyway (pretty much every third page) that they could have set aside a page to publish the tables, especially given the range of permutations in play. Laziness. The usual booklet of team line-ups has two identical pages dedicated to sponsors, one at the front and the other at the back. Another small comment.

Then Kilanerin used the counter attack to capitalise. From throw in, Kilanerin decided to play 2 or 3 sweepers for most of the game and foul the Sarsfields before they could get any momentum going forward. In my view they have many fine footballers but there approach needs to be far more positive to get the most out of what they have. Special word for Sarsfields John Bridges, I'd say he covered every blade of grass in Bellefield and probably had 50+ possessions of the ball. As they got tired, Sarsfields moved Lee Chin out the field to get on more ball, he won lots a frees and helped put the Kilanerin lads on the back foot, and then in amongst 5/6 Kilanerin lads he managed to catch a high free kick and bury the ball low to the corner to equalize the game. This year's results compared to last year also shows how much of a loss Matty Forde is to them and how important he has been for them over the last 20 years. This worked very well for them for the first 50 minutes of the game, but boy was it dreadful to watch. Gladly in the end from the neutrals perspective the puke football was defeated with a last minute Lee Chin goal, with the draw being enough to leave the Sarsfields in 5th place while Kilanerin face into a relegation final against St Anne's. Admittedly I don't go to many football games, but given that the last round senior game in Bellefield was a game where the losers would end up in the relegation final I decided to head there this evening.From early on it seemed like a battle between 1 team who wanted to play fast football and another team who wanted to play "puke football". Outstanding workrate. I know very little about St Anne's football team, but any team with the negative anti-football approach that Kilanerin showed tonight deserves to struggle. Kilanerin now face into a relegation final against St Anne's.
