Glenravel and Naomh Éanna Prepare for Titles

The two remaining Antrim ACHL titles are within touching distance for Naomh Éanna and Con Magee's Glenravel this afternoon.

It’s all over bar the shouting in the top half of Division 1 as Cúchullain’s wrapped up their second title in a row last week. The Dunloy men travel to face Portaferry today as their attention turns to the Antrim SHC. St John’s host Loughgiel knowing a win will raise them above Ruairí Óg into third place with the Cushendall side not in action.

In the bottom half, Ballycastle lick their championship wounds from Friday evening and look to copper-fasten their Division 1 status for 2020 at home to Ballygalget, while St Gall’s host Ballycran. The Milltown men look set for a showdown with Ballygalget to avoid automatic relegation should they both lose today.

Naomh Éanna can take a step towards Division 1 hurling this afternoon as they journey to Ballyvoy to take on Carey Faughs. A win would leave the Hightown men four clear and rivals Sarsfield’s with two games to play. The two have a win apiece in the head-to-head but the North Belfast side have a much better scoring difference.

In the bottom half, Oisín Glenariffe host St Brigid’s Cloughmills as the visitors struggle against the drop to Division 3 while Tír na nÓg can dispel any lingering relegation play-off fears with a victory over local rivals Cloney Gaels.

Newly-crowned Division 3 champions Gort na Móna have the afternoon off as the battle for the promotion play-off continues, with 2nd to 5th place still in with a shout. Cushendun welcome current incumbents Carryduff to the north coast while Bredagh head for the Shaw’s Road to take on St Paul’s.

Just one game in the bottom half as Glenarm welcome Cúchullain’s Armagh to Feystown, with both clubs already turning their attention to their respective championships.

Con Magee’s can gain their reward for a fine season by clinching the Division 4 title this afternoon with victory over closest challengers Naomh Treasa. The Glenravel side travel to Belfast knowing a point will be enough to secure the title.

Lathárna Óg can cap a fine returning season by moving into third place should they defeat Naomh Columcille at Bruston Braes this afternoon, while All Saint’s face bottom side Ardoyne in Ballymena.

Any Division 4 fans could conceivably make all three games as they throw in at 1pm, 3pm and 6pm – no excuse!
