League And Championship Predictions

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


Convincing win for Ballela as expected on Saturday past, Ballyvarley again unable to stay disciplined when the points start to rack up against them, I believe that's 3 games in a row that have had a red card shown.

Kilclief beating Castlewellan also no surprise although at half time it was as close as 5 points! Castlewellan in the next few years could be contesting for a good finish in the league if they keep their young lads at it!

JHC Semi- finals

Warrenpoint vs Ballela

This will be a game to watch with an inform Warrenpoint out to prove a point after winning the league, albeit gaining points from 2 games that they wouldn't reschedule. Hard to see the fixture going anywhere but in Ballela's favour with the firepower of the McCuskers with a few notable others having a good game on Saturday. The only threat Warrenpoint pose is John O'Kane from the dead ball, even then he had a bad game a few weeks ago in Liatroim.
Ballela +6

Newry vs Kilclief

All signs point to Newry here, however Kilclief are a hard team and won't let them away easy, a few key players from Newry don't like being pushed about! Again the threat lies with the scores from the dead ball and if Kilclief can keep their heads it'll be an interesting game! Newry +7

Looks to be a good set up for the final of the JHC with Newry and Ballela being the favourites!


IHC

Bit of a shock in my opinion around the Carryduff/Bredagh game, thought it would have been a lot closer, didn't get up to see the game but did hear Bredagh were firing on all cylinders!

Bredagh vs Clonduff

Another great fixture for the weekend in the intermediate, would love to see Clonduff win here however with a few key players away it's hard to look past a Bredagh win. Bredagh +10

SHC

Good showing from Liatroim at the weekend especially without key players like Pearse Og and PJ! Hard to look past a Portaferry and Ballycran final this year! Portaferry showing great determination to come back and win on Saturday evening, great game to watch.

Liatroim vs Ballycran

Hard to look past Ballycran here, but after Liatroim's performance last week I think it'll be a close one! Ballycran will be looking for the win after letting the ports back in on Saturday. Think this will be my choice of game for the weekend. Ballycran +7

If Ports beat Ballygalget and we beat Liatroim then Ports are straight into the final.

Ballygalget and ourselves then play off to see who goes into the final.

That's what Shane told me and hes never wrang as he's a Gilmore.

I'm not a betting man but I could have won a few quid on Saturday with my predictions ! Apparently the draw was 8/1.

after reading the crans match report, the question has to be asked why was the ports allowed to play with 16 men?

The wee short curly headed one?

I suppose the club secretary will be getting an email, suspensions doubled and fined accordingly.

No real point in having a manager then or handing out suspensions

Maybe you should have one of your solicitors scribe another brilliant letter and claim the points.

That post was removed when brain cells were engaged and hard facts were accepted.
