Dooner’s weekend predictions

A clearer pattern emerged last weekend as Ballymoe went clear at the top of the Premier Division.

  There are a number of teams struggling to get off the mark this season and points will be hard won across the three divisions.

  Slight improvement with predictions last week, hopefully more of the same this weekend…
