The two big games of the weekend are in division 1b tomorrow. RGU v Loughinisland and Ford v Carryduff. Looking at the last round of fixtures I imagine that these four teams could win the last round so it means this weekend is so vital. Carryduff will really want to cement their safety to bed this weekend so I fear for Bryansford.
The games should be streamed by the clubs as they are so important.


The division one team all the forum experts continuously wrote off have 19 points - doesnít look like they are going away

Could still go down if Rostrevor beat them and RGU win though yes? Loughinisland now mathematically safe after tonightís win.

So, we are in Division 1 next season, made it hard for ourselves after our start, but got there in the end. First time in 40 odd years. Many of us have been following the seniors in Divs, 4,3,2 and now Div1, been  from St Paul's to St Michel's and everywhere in-between watching , really looking forward to going to Clonduff, Kilcoo, Mayobridge and the rest to watch us in a senior football game.

I see Shamrocks and Drumgath have both been promoted into Div 2 and play a league final tomorrow night.  Any players from either side that could possibly make the county panel?
I'd say Lavery will look in all 4 divisions and maybe hold trials a bit like the Tyrone set up.

Shea McConville has potential but needs to bulk up,  Gough is playing well and a young player Gorman has caught the eye when I saw them play this year. Conor will hopefully look further than Loughisland for players unlike other managers.

Gough was tried before if memory serves me correct.  Not sure how he performed. McConville probably isn't the only one that needs S&C.. lots of players round the county could benefit from this.  The transformation in the physical make up of Armagh and Derry in particular in the last 2 yrs has been massive.  No doubt CL will have the right man working on this from early on.

In fairness a lot of the ĎS&Cí onus should be/is on the player themselves if they want to breech county standard physicality. Obviously the input from a club or county coach is vital but there has to be a willingness and understanding from within in the first instance. The Tyrone and Dublin lads werenít waiting round for someone to tell them to get to the gym Iím sure.

Congratulations. Looks like you also have the chance to go up as champions on Tuesday too, I think a draw is enough?

Can anyone confirm that the only 2 teams that can go down from division 1 now that havenít already been relegated is RGU and Bryansford based on Loughinisland and carryduff having better H2H than RGU? But if Ford win on Tuesday they are safe regardless

Looks like it, our previous game with Longstone was a draw, so if two team end up on same points, it's games against eachother, then after that score difference. Ours is +73 theirs is +62.

That is correct. There are various scenarios depending on results with the most common outcome being downpatrick going down.
Bryansford can be caught however if rostrevor beat them and dpatrick win.

Well done to Bredagh, they are a fantastic club and Cherryvale is a vibrant centre for GAA in the city. Bredagh seem to have a strong underage setup as well so they fully deserve all the success. Next year division 1 will have 5 East and South teams. Division 2 next year is going to be very strong. Castlewellan had more in fighting last week mainly off-field matters but they are a championship side and could be dangerous in that. Rostrevor has picked up form and they won't lie down to the Ford tomorrow, they will definitely want to continue their good form coming into the championship. Downpatrick is in trouble and needs results to go their way. With the players they have they shouldn't be a yoyo club but the country clubs seem to have more bite than them over the course of the season. They were missing key personnel but so was every team.
