This weekend’s action… (subject to Abigail and Barney)

The inclement weather played havoc with football fixtures last weekend as Hurricane Abigail caused the postponement of games across the county.

  That means this weekend will see the Galway League entertain their Roscommon counterparts in the Oscar Traynor Trophy. I said it before and I’ll say it again: Roscommon & District League will be looking to build on the point they earned in their opening game against the Mayo League.

  The top two sides from the group will progress to the knock-out stages and the Rossies certainly have enough talent available to them to push for one of those spots. Weather-permitting, the game will take place on Saturday evening at 7 pm.

  Sunday will see fixtures across all three divisions and we start with a look ahead to the two Premier Division games.

  Cloonfad United will look to break into the top four as they entertain St. John’s Athletic at home. St. John’s have only managed one win in five so far this season so this is a big game for both sides.

  Elsewhere in the division, fourth-placed Ballaghaderreen will look to move second when they take on bottom club MD Town at home. Ballaghaderreen have two games in hand on leaders Moore United and will be confident of closing the gap this weekend.

  In Norio’s Takeaway Division One, Loughglynn United entertain Kilkerrin United, Rahara Rovers welcome Shiven Rovers, Ballinasloe Town B travel to play Brazukas and Ballaghaderreen B take on Glen Celtic in the early kick-off at 11 am.

  In the Killeen Sports Ground Division 2, there’s a top of the table clash between Lough Harps and MD Town B, Skyvalley Rovers B entertain KC Celtic and St. John’s Athletic travel to Moylough 79.

  All fixtures are subject to the weather and with orange level alert warnings issued this week I think I’ll hold onto this preview!
