GLENVILLE LEAD THE WAY IN EXCITING PREMIER A SECTION
By DERMOT CLARKE
Time to have a look at how things are moving along in the Amateur Football League.
Glenville lead the Premier ‘A’ division at present albeit on goal-difference from Sandyhill/Shangan who seem to come with a late run nowadays.
Glenville have suffered two defeats and lurking in behind are the likes of Sheriff YC and Kilmore Celtic.
Sheriff have some catching up to do games-wise and are certainly in the picture in what should be a close section.
The Finglas boys are standing atop the Premier ‘B’ as Patrician Celtic lead the way and Griffith Rovers, celebrating a 50th anniversary, lie in joint second place with Mountview four points behind with Real Transylvania, St. Mary’s and Cabinteely lying in wait in what is also a very competitive section.
The undefeated Ashbourne United head Division One North. The only blot on the copybook being a 2-2 draw with Rivervalley Rangers in Rathingle.
The lead is a healthy enough one of five points with the chasing pack being led by Ballymun United but Coolock Village may well cause the most headaches for the East Meath outfit.
The Division 2 North section looks to be a shootout between old rivals St. Paul’s Artane ‘B’ and Trinity Donaghmede. There was little between them when they played out a 1-1 draw in Donaghmede mid-April and the return fixture could go a long way towards deciding who comes out in the division.
My old alma-mater Greenfield Park lie in third place awaiting any slip-ups from the top two and the game with Paul’s early May was probably one of the games of the season.
Finally for now Division 3 North is being headed by St. Ita’s who suffered just one defeat at the hands of Corduff.
McKelvey Celtic are right behind however as also are Kinsealy and Dunboyne who beat McKelvey in their only league loss this term.
