Aghyaran look to be struggling already. Bankers for relegation unless they make changes quick! Always a sign if your reserve teams are performing also. You need the reserves to push the thing along.

Any predictions on the upcoming first round championship fixtures?

Any thoughts on the league and championship as we enter the business end of the season? Greencastle for the league and championship double to be pushed only by Trillick in each??

Be hard to look past greencastle the way they are going at the minute. Strong defence with a big midfield and good forwards in the two mccullaghs and carson will be hard to overcome. Trillick only team who will be near them from what i have seen this year.

Pomeroy put an end to Greencastle's double hopes...however if they beat Trillick this week they will all but ensure a return to senior football while picking up a league medal. The championship appears to be Trillick's only guarantee of senior football when they play Dungannon on 5th October. No doubt it has been the highest quality Div 2 in a long time with some very good team performances on show.

As a Dungannon man, I was proud and delighted with the tremendous performance by the Clarkes in the ISFC final on Sunday. Most people had Trillick nailed on for a win, but the Clarkes turned in a huge performance and won very convincingly. It was obvious from the opening seconds that Dungannon were playing with much more power and intensity than Trillick, and didn't let up for the full hour.

It probably sounds odd to say this in such a one-sided game, but the final scoreline actually flattered Trillick, as the Clarkes missed a huge amount of goal/point chances, while Trllick were much more economical up front. Also impressive was the fact that Dungannon's total of 4-11 all came from play.

Dungannon had stars all over the field, with Paudi McNulty, Mattie Walsh and Paddy Quinn perhaps the pick of the bunch. For Trillick, the Brennans and Daire Gallagher had their moments, but they were starved of possession for long periods, especially when against the wind in the 2nd half. For someone of his ability, Mattie Donnelly struggled to make his expected impact on the game, and spent a lot of it trying unsuccessfully to contain McNulty.

Overall, I'm as delighted with the nature of Dungannon's performance as I am with their promotion. They played some great, attacking football and were worthy winners. Trillick can still gain promotion through the playoffs, but a lot will depend on how much character they show to bounce back from such a big disappointment.
