It’s still all to play for in the Breffni County

By Niall Gartland

THE bulk of league football has been played off at this stage in Cavan, but there’s still a fair amount of unfinished business at both ends of the table across the Divisions.

The four teams that finished bottom of Division One and Two will be pitted in a relegation play-off series, with two of those teams eventually consigned to relegation. So even though Lacken, to cite an example, haven’t won a single game all season in Division One and will likely finish rock bottom, they can still pull it out of the bag if they fare better in the play-offs.

Two teams will be promoted from both Division Two and Division Three – again the cream of the crop will have to go through a play-off series – while a number of teams are in contention to win a league title in Division One.

Cavan Gaels sit top of the table with one more game to play and are guaranteed to book a semi-final spot, while Ramor, Crosserlough, Gowna and Arva fill the next three positions.

At the other end, Ballyhaise, Castlerahan and Knockbride each have two games remaining and face a battle for survival.

In Division Two, Killygarry are top of the pile with two rounds left hanging over, while Lavey, Killinkere and Ballinagh are next in the pecking order. Down the other end, Belturbert, Shercock, Denn and bottom-placed Templeport have struggled to pick up wins.

In the third tier, Bailieborough, Drumalee, Kill and Munterconnaught make up the top four spots, while Maghera MacFinns have lost all ten of their games to date down the other end.
