The race for sur­vival

Wicklow People - - SPORT -

THE sur­vival race in the Re­nault Se­nior Foot­ball Cham­pi­onship is look­ing like it will go right down to the wire with four of the five teams in­volved cur­rently on two points and Bray Em­mets sit­ting on top of the group with four points.

A win for the Bray men in their next game, on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 22, against Ti­na­hely, is vi­tal and would guar­an­tee their safety.

How­ever, a slip up there would see Ti­na­hely join them on four points and ei­ther An­nacurra or New­town will also have col­lected four points (bar­ring a draw) when they meet on the pre­vi­ous Friday night in Rath­new in what should be a bel­ter of a game with New­town see­ing off Coolkenno last week­end and An­nacurra pow­er­ing past Bray in Pearse’s Park by 1-14 to 0-08.

In the In­ter­me­di­ate grade, the men of Aughrim and An Tochar have made the drop to Ju­nior after very dis­ap­point­ing cam­paigns for both clubs.

This week­end there are two very ex­cit­ing fi­nals in Pearse’s Park on Satur­day.

the open­ing game will be the Ju­nior C foot­ball fi­nal be­tween Ash­ford and Ti­na­hely.

Both these teams have pro­vided some ex­cel­lent en­ter­tain­ment with Ti­na­hely emerg­ing after a re­play bat­tle with Donard-The Glen and Ash­ford com­ing through a thriller against Kil­coole.

Ti­na­hely’s David Dil­lon and Ray McG­lynn will be two key men for their side come the fi­nal while the Con­yards and Danny Byrne will be crit­i­cal for the Ash­ford en­deav­our.

Foll­wing that game, the men of Rath­new’s In­ter­me­di­ate side will take on AGB in the SFL Di­vi­sion 2 fi­nal. The Tim­mons Cup is the prize on of­fer here and both sides will be go­ing hell for leather in a bid to end the seaosn on a high.

Knock­ananna and Cool­boy meet in Di­vi­sion 3 on Sun­day for a place in the Johnny Fox Cup fi­nal.
