This coming weekend is a critical one in the battle to avoid relegation from the Senior and Intermediate Football Championships.
Two north Galway clubs will be hoping avoid relegation this weekend. In the Senior Relegation, Caltra can be relegated down to Intermediate for the first time since 1997 if they lose to Tuam Stars in Group A. Group B is close following the draw between Naomh Anna Leitir Mor and Cortoon Shamrocks. Naomh Anna face Kilconly in what is Kilconly’s first game in this section.
In Intermediate, the local derby between Glenamaddy and Kilkerrin/Clonberne is sure to garner interest. This is Kilkerrin/Clonberne’s first game in their group and a win for them will see them face Athenry with the winners staying up. For Glenamaddy, defeat would mean relegation to Junior for the first time since 1987. Carna/Cashel, who beat Glenamaddy in the County Senior Semi-Final in 2005, could also be relegated to Junior if they lose to Williamstown in what will be the “Willies” first game in the group stage.
The Current Tables are as follows…..
