Dooner’s weekend predictions – October 27th


A quiet enough weekend in store with the Roscommon & District League in Traynor Cup action on Sunday. Best of luck to all involved and hopefully we build on last year and go even further in the competition this season!

Friday, October 27th

Killeen Sports Grounds Division Two

Shiven Rovers B v Cam Celtic. 8 pm

Difficult one to call but the visitors should have the edge with their firepower.

Prediction: Cam Celtic

Glen Celtic v Roscommon United. 8.30 pm

The visitors will be up against it here. Glen will be favourites with home advantage and could make a big move up the table with a win.

Prediction: Glen Celtic

Saturday, October 28th

Norio’s Takeaway Division One

Strokestown United v Dunmore Town. 7.45 pm

United are always a difficult proposition at home and I fancy them to take maximum points here.

Prediction: Strokestown United

Killeen Sports Grounds Division Two

Boyle Celtic B v Rahara Rovers. 7.45 pm

Home advantage, a lethal strike force and solid defence make Boyle odds on favourites here.

Prediction: Boyle Celtic B

Sunday, October 29th

Oscar Traynor Trophy

Roscommon & District Football League v Mayo League. 2 pm

Big game to start the Oscar Traynor campaign against the old enemy at home this Sunday. The RDFL reached the quarter-finals of this competition last season and will be hoping to build on that platform. New arrivals, Boyle Celtic and St. Peter’s will bolster an already solid pool.

Prediction: Roscommon and District Football League

Norio’s Takeaway Division One

CP Ajax v Ballinasloe Town B. 11.30 am

The runaway leaders will certainly fancy their chances here.

Prediction: Ballinasloe Town B
