Hodson Bay Hotel SFC relegation play-off

Michael Glavey’s v Strokestown in Castlerea on Saturday (4 pm)

Outgoing senior county champions Strokestown face another huge game this Saturday as they meet Michael Glavey’s, bidding to avoid a final match against Western Gaels to escape the dreaded drop into intermediate ranks for 2024.

Glavey’s were poor enough in their opening games but they have improved since then. If guys like Andy Glennon and Dylan Ruane are available again then they will give Strokestown a real test.

Strokestown were in control against Tulsk but then ran out of steam in the second half (and lost). They cannot afford a repeat. If Strokestown can get out a strong team they can survive.

Prediction: Strokestown.
