Dooner’s weekend predictions – September 13th

 

 

Congratulations to Castlerea Celtic’s Jack Higgins and Glen Celtic’s Michael Heneghan, who have been chosen for the Republic of Ireland Regions Cup squad for the game against Northern Ireland on September 25th. Mick Corrigan of Boyle Celtic has also been called up as standby for the fixture, which will be played at RDFL grounds in Lecarrow.

  Meanwhile, champions St. Peter’s will face a difficult trip to Ballinasloe to take on The Town in the second round of the FAI Junior Cup (Date TBC). The sides meet this Sunday in what is the game of the weekend in the Premier Division.

Friday, September 13th

RDFL Premier Division (8 pm)

Castlerea Celtic v Kilkerrin United

United gave a good account of themselves against St. Peter’s but you’d still have to fancy the hosts.

Prediction: Castlerea Celtic

Boyle Celtic v Shiven Rovers

Boyle bounced back last weekend as predicted and they should have enough to get the job done this weekend.

Prediction: Boyle Celtic

RDFL Second Division (8 pm)

Ballymoe FC B v Moore United FC B

The hosts get a slight nod.

Prediction: Moore United FC B

Saturday, September 14th

RDFL Second Division (8 pm)

Glen Celtic AFC v Boyle Celtic B

Difficult to look beyond the home side.

Prediction: Glen Celtic AFC

Sunday, September 15th

RDFL Premier Division

St. John’s Athletic v Ballymoe FC. 11 am

Mixed starts for both sides but the hosts are capable of getting something from Sunday’s fixture.

Prediction: Draw

St. Peter’s FC v Ballinasloe Town. 2 pm

We didn’t have to wait long for the first crunch fixture in the Premier Division. Are the champions as strong as they were? This game will provide some clarity.

Prediction: Ballinasloe Town

RDFL First Division (11 am)

Dysart FC v Rahara Rovers FC

Home win.

Prediction: Dysart FC

CP Ajax v Dunmore Town AFC

The hosts to bounce back.

Prediction: CP Ajax

Cam Celtic v Roscommon United

A strikeforce of Vando and Jamie Bracken gives United a chance against anyone in this division. Bracken hit a whopping seven while Vando scored a hattrick last weekend as they ran riot against Dunmore Town.

Prediction: Roscommon United

Ahascragh United v Ballaghaderreen FC

Away win.

Prediction: Ballaghaderreen FC

Cloonfad United v Castlerea Celtic B

With twelve goals in two games so far, Cloonfad are going to take some stopping this season.

Prediction: Cloonfad United

RDFL Second Division (2 pm)

St. Cuan’s United v Cloonfad United B

Home win.

Prediction: St. Cuan’s United

Manor United v St. John’s Athletic B

The hosts can keep pace with Glen Celtic.

Prediction: Manor United

Roscommon United B v Ballaghaderreen FC B

An encouraging debut for United last weekend but they may have to wait a little longer to get off the mark.

Prediction: Ballaghaderreen FC
