The majority of the divisions in the Mayo League will reach the midway point this weekend with the seventh round of games taking place across all divisions over Saturday and Sunday. Castlebar Celtic are still top of the table in the Super League, but their rampage through Mayo football this year was knocked off kilter last weekend when Westport United knocked them out of the FCS Cup at the semi-final stage with a 2-0 win in Westport.
Castlebar Celtic will be hoping to cut their nearest challengers off at the pass on Sunday evening as the Mayo Super League season comes up near its midway point for the year. Declan Kilkelly’s charges go into their sixth game with four wins out of five so far on Sunday. Their nearest challengers are Super League newboys Claremorris who are hot on their heels, only one point behind the leaders. Celtic dropped two points when they drew with Swinford in round two, while Claremorris’s only blotch on their copy book so far came when they lost by the odd goal in five to Manulla in the same round.
Claremorris, who have had a great start to the Super League this season winning three of their opening four games, will be looking to keep up that good form on Saturday evening in the Connacht Gold Cup, the only all top level clash of the round. Michael Hutton’s side will make the trip to The Green to take on a bottom of the table Ballinrobe Town side who have not even been able to get a point on the board so far this season. Ballinrobe are coming into the game off the back of a 4-2 home defeat to league leaders Castlebar Celtic, while Claremorris were the latest side to topple defending champions Ballina Town with a 3-1 win in north Mayo. Derek Glynn was the man on target for Claremorris last weekend, grabbing all three goals in their win.
Castlebar Celtic will look to extend their lead at the top of the Elverys Sports Super League this weekend when they face Ballinrobe Town. Declan Kilkelly’s side currently sit top of the table with two wins and a draw from their opening three games, while Ballinrobe Town are pointless at the bottom of the table. Celtic had last weekend off with their FCS Cup game against Manulla postponed until Thursday fortnight (May 19), while Ballinrobe Town exited the competition after losing to Claremorris at home. Claremorris are currently in second place in the Super League thanks to two wins from their opening trio of games.
The divisional cups kick off in earnest this weekend in Mayo with action spread across six different competitions on Saturday and Sunday.
This may only be the third weekend of the league season, but it offers an opportunity for a number of clubs to firmly state their intentions for the season. The big game of the weekend in the Super League is the meeting of Castlebar Celtic and Ballina Town on Sunday in Celtic Park. With both sides currently sitting in first and second place in the table respectively, a win for either could seriously damage the others chance to go on and win the league at the end of the season, due to the condensed nature of the new league set up.
Saturday April 9
It’s all about to kick off across the soccer pitches of the county for another long and winding season. On Saturday evening the action will kick off in the Premier A, Premier B, League One and League Two of the Mayo League at 6pm. On Sunday the big boys will get to grips with each other in the Super League along with the basement boys in League 3. This year the action in Mayo is spread across six different divisions with eight sides in each of the top five divisions and ten in the bottom tier. The league will be operating a two-up and two-down system of promotion and relegation across all divisions and come September 4 it should all be over for all the sides in the county. With only 14 games to be played in any of the top five divisions, a couple of losses could rule any side out of contention early doors and leave the battling it out at the bottom of the table.
