Dooner’s weekend predictions – March 9th


Not one wrong prediction last week must be some sort of record! All joking aside, hopefully the weather will continue to improve as we enter the second weekend in March.


Friday, March 9th

Herald Premier Division (8 pm)

Boyle Celtic v Ballymoe FC

Boyle are closer to Ballymoe than they are to St. Peter’s in terms of points but will be heavy favourites this weekend.

Prediction: Boyle Celtic

Moore United v Ballaghaderreen FC           

Moore is a tough place to go for most teams let alone bottom side Ballaghaderreen.

Prediction: Moore United

Saturday, March 10th

TP Brennan Connacht Cup Quarter-Final

St. Peter’s FC v West United. 7.30 pm           

The Premier Division leaders will be confident of making the last four.

Prediction: St. Peter’s FC

Herald Premier Division (7.45 pm)

Ballinasloe Town v Cloonfad United

The hosts can put real pressure on St. Peter’s this weekend.

Prediction: Ballinasloe Town           

Shiven Rovers v Dysart FC

Dysart will be hoping for a repeat of the 2-2 draw earlier in the season but Shiven are favourites.

Prediction: Shiven Rovers           

Killeen Sportsgrounds Division Two

Castlerea Celtic B v Skyvalley Rovers B. 7.45 pm

The home side should claim maximum points.

Prediction: Castlerea Celtic B

Sunday, March 11th

TP Brennan Connacht Shield Quarter-Finals (2 pm)

Hodson Bay Athletic v Swinford

We give the Roscommon side the nod.

Prediction: Hodson Bay Athletic

Kilkerrin United v Manulla FC B           

The Division One leaders are flying this season.

Prediction: Kilkerrin United           

RDFL Challenge Cup Round 2

Cam Celtic v Boyle Celtic B. 2 pm           

Cam won’t be easy to beat at home even though the visitors are in good form.

Prediction: Cam Celtic, narrowly.

Herald Premier Division

Skyvalley Rovers v Castlerea Celtic. 2 pm           

Celtic can return to the top of the Premier Division this weekend.

Prediction: Castlerea Celtic

Norio’s Takeaway Division One (2 pm unless stated)

Ballinasloe Town B v Lough Harps. 11 am            

Ballinasloe must win to stay in touch with league leaders Kilkerrin United.

Prediction: Ballinasloe Town B

Ahascragh United v Dunmore Town           

Dunmore’s away record hasn’t been great although neither has Ahascragh’s home record.

Prediction: Ahascragh United

Strokestown United v CP Ajax           

United just edged CP Ajax in a thriller earlier in the season. Hopefully there will be as many goals this time around.

Prediction: Strokestown United

Killeen Sportsgrounds Division Two (2 pm)

Moylough ’79 v Glen Celtic           

The visitors are only one of two teams to have taken points off the league leaders so far this season (Cam Celtic are the other). Moylough will be favourites to take all three points this weekend however.

Prediction: Moylough ‘79

Rahara Rovers v Shiven Rovers B           

Rahara will keep pace at the top.

Prediction: Rahara Rovers

Roscommon United v Cloonfad United B

The hosts will be too strong for Cloonfad.
