Final day drama as Tyrone leagues reach it’s conclusion

CALCULATORS are very much at the ready as club teams across Tyrone brace themselves for a dramatic conclusion to the All-County Leagues this Sunday afternoon.

Of particular significance is the fight for survival across Division One and Division Two, and there’s a litany of teams not yet out of the woods heading into their final fixtures.

In the top flight, Clonoe, one of the heavy hitters of Tyrone football in the last 15 years, are in major difficulties after losing to bottom-placed Derrylaughan at the weekend.

Moy, Donaghmore and Greencastle are still in danger of finishing in the play-off spots, though it would take an unlikely sequence of events for Greencastle to suffer that particular fate. Derrylaughan can still avoid automatic relegation if they beat the Moy and Clonoe lose to Trillick.

In Division Two, Eglish claimed the league title and automatic promotion to Division Two following their 4-12 to 0-7 victory over Naomh Eoghan last Sunday. The next four teams (excluding the 2022 Intermediate Champions) will take part in the promotion play-offs. Galbally, Pomeroy, Edendork and Gortin are set to finish second to fifth while Kildress and Killeeshil are also in contention to potentially secure a play-off berth.

At the bottom of the second Division, Eskra sit bottom of the table and must defeat the Rock to stand a chance of avoiding automatic relegation. Tattyreagh, Cookstown and the Rock are deadlocked on eight points while Naomh Eoghan and Beragh aren’t out of the woods just yet.

In Division Three, Stewartstown, who have led the way throughout, will claim the Division Three league title if they achieve at least a draw against Brocagh. Strabane can still potentially catch them, while Aghaloo, Glenelly and Fintona are guaranteed to finish in the play-off spots.
