Duke’s weekend predictions


Saturday, 23rd September

The Herald Premier Division (7.45 pm)

Ballinasloe Town v St John’s Athletic

Ballinasloe did not play last weekend while St John’s were at the receiving end from St Peter’s. Ballinasloe should be good enough.

Prediction: Ballinasloe Town

Cloonfad v Castlerea Celtic

These two teams scored a total of 13 goals between them last weekend which probably means that this will end 0-0! Castlerea are going well and might just have the edge.

Prediction: Castlerea Celtic

Moore United v Boyle Celtic

A long journey for Boyle who are going very well. There is no reason to side against them. Moore will give it everything but Boyle look too strong.

Prediction: Boyle Celtic

Norio’s Takeaway Division One (7.45 pm)

Strokestown United v Lough Harps

Strokestown came out on the right side of a seven-goal thriller last week. At home they should have the measure of Lough Harps.

Prediction: Strokestown United

Sunday, 24th September

The Herald Premier Division

Dysart FC v Ballaghaderreen FC (2 pm)

Dysart did not play last weekend but Ballaghaderreen are going through a rough patch. At home Dysart look the best bet.

Prediction: Dysart FC

Skyvalley Rovers v Ballymoe FC (11 am)

This will be one of the games of the day between the defending champions and Rovers, who are hard to beat on their own patch. This could well be a draw.

Prediction: A draw

St Peter’s FC v Shiven Rovers (11 am)

St Peter’s are flying and they will expect to keep that run going at home against Shiven – and they should oblige.

Prediction: St Peter’s FC

Norio’s Takeaway Division One

Ahascragh United v Ballinasloe Town B (2 pm)

A local derby here…Ahascragh lost out at home last weekend to Hodson Bay so they won’t want to lose again on their own ground.

Prediction: A draw

CP Ajax v Kilkerrin United (11 am)

CP Ajax were beaten in a thriller against Strokestown last weekend and at home they might just have enough for Kilkerrin.

Prediction: CP Ajax

Hodson Bay Athletic v Dunmore Town (2 pm)

Hodson Bay are going along nicely and will have momentum after last weekend’s win against Ahascragh. They should prevail again here.

Prediction: Hodson Bay Celtic

Killeen Sports Grounds Division Two (all games 2 pm)

Castlerea Celtic B v Roscommon United

Prediction: Castlerea Celtic

Moylough ’79 v Cloonfad United B

Prediction: Moylough

Rahara Rovers v Glen Celtic

Prediction: Glen Celtic

Skyvalley Rovers B v Cam Celtic

Prediction: Cam Celtic
