Manulla still lead the way as season passes half way point

Fri, Jun 16, 2017

Last weekend's round of action in the Elverys Sports Super League saw the top division reach the half way point with Manulla still holding on to their lead at the top of the table, they sit two points in front of Westport United, with both Castlebar Celtic and Straide and Foxford United three points further back, making for what looks to be an exciting second half at the top of the table. At the bottom of the table there are three sides separated by just three points, with Achill Rovers, Ballyheane, and Glenhest all battling it out to avoid the drop at this stage, but a run of form from any of those sides could see those placed above the bottom three dragged into the dogfight at the bottom.

Top of the table continues to heat up

Fri, May 19, 2017

By the time you read this Westport United could have joined Straide and Foxford United and Manulla at the top of the table on 16 points, or Castlebar Celtic could move just one point behind the two table toppers and just into third place over Westport United by a point. The two grand old clubs of Mayo soccer met in Celtic Park yesterday evening in one of the most eagerly anticipated clashes so far this season. Also in action last night were fifth placed Claremorris and a bottom of the table Ballina Town, a game Ballina really need to pick up some points in as they look to pull themselves away from the relegation battle.

Fri, May 05, 2017

Last weekend all eyes were on the divisional cup competitions with the Westaro Cup taking centre stage for the top flight clubs.

Early pace setters meet on Sunday

Fri, Apr 14, 2017

When the season was about to kick-off, you would have got pretty good odds on Straide and Foxford United leading the league table after the first few rounds of games, but that is exactly where they are right now, with seven points from their opening three games. You would have also probably got as long odds that the two sides who battled it out for the title last year would be in the bottom two, but once again that is what we have so far with Ballina Town propping up the table and Westport United just ahead of them.
