First round of fixtures in Junior football kicks off tomorrow. Who are the contenders and no-hopers?

Think Junior honours this year will be between Brocagh, Dungannon, Killyman and Aghaloo. My verdict on tomorrows games is:

Aghaloo O`Neill's v Tattyreagh St Patrick's - Aghaloo by 3
Beragh Red Knights v Drumquin Wolfe Tones - Drumquin by 3
Brockagh Emmetts v Dungannon Thomas Clarkes - Very close Dungannon by 2
Clogher Eire Óg v Killyman St Mary's - Killyman by 2
Dregish Pearse Óg v Droim Ratha an tSáirsealaigh - Drumragh by 4
Fintona Na Piarsaigh v Glenelly St Joseph's - Glenelly by 1
Owen Roe O`Neill's v Errigal Ciaran - Errigal by 6
Newtownstewart St Eugene's v Castlederg St Eugene's - Newtownstewart by 5

I wouldnt say the Clarkes team is "struggling bigtime" from what I hear there is great team spirit amongst the lads and their training sessions are quite good. I've been told it's the hierarchy of the club (i.e the committee) that is struggling bigtime. Maybe this is the reason that numbers have dropped quite significantly since last year players not been treated right, incidents and occurings being brushed under the mat and kept hush hush. It seems to be the way the club is being run, not so much to do with the players or team.

My bad!!! Was talkin to Clarkes player last week and he did mention that theres a bit of a fall-out amongst few people in the club...he said that the numbers had gone down at training and that they were struggling for competition for places!!

Id say they'll be alrite...good win last week and i tip them for another this wk!!

Impressive result for Brackaville. They are obviously going well...possible contenders for promotion??

A hard fought win for Dungannon against Glenelly. A great hard fought win for the Clarkes. Easy to see that there is great team spirit amongst the team.

Looks like it is going to be a very competitive league this year. Notable result for Brackaville against Drumragh..big margin! Newtownstewart won all three matches but apparently were very lucky to beat Castlederg in the first match. From a western point of view, main challenges looking to come from Newtown, Glenelly and Dregish.

Drumragh better than that performance. They will be top six or thereabouts this year again.

think fintonas result was the most impressive going to brockagh and winning might be the dark horses. as regards the best of the west you could take the pick of newtown and glenelly and they wouldnt win the league. fintona dungannon killyman and ahghaloo for me.

Surely newtownstewart are going well and are most likely favourites for promotion? I hear Glenelly tried everything to beat Dungannon last weekend and that the young Dungannon team rose above it and unlike in such games last year thye managed to run out winners by 3 points! Fintona look like they could be the dark horses this year...following in Derrytresk's footsteps possibly?

Not running Fintona down, but I saw them in their first match and if Dregish had have taken their chances the game would have been long over after 10 minutes of the second half. A fairly good team, but upper mid-table for me.

Was at the Dungannon game in Glenelly, it was a great game to watch from the sideline. although Dungannon seem to be playing good football,

I watched newtownstewart against clogher, an i must say was very impressed, they played most of the second half a man down an won at a canter! must have had there homework done on cloghers young corner forward who scored 11 points the week before barely had a sniff!! not sure if there promotion favourites but wont be far away!!
