Senior B Football Championship

Postby Ballyduff » Fri Sep 18, 2015 2:16 pm

Who will this weekend semi-finals and why.

My penny's worth is that Raheen will beat Durrow, as Durrow have a real difficulty winning semi-finals. There is a lot of talk in Durrow that without Brian Geraghty they have no midfield and that this will cost them. In the other semi-final I think Tubber will prevail and will be the team to beat in the final

Who won the Durrow v Raheen game, I can't find a result anywhere? Ballycumber beat Tubber yesterday.

Does anyone know why the final is fixed for 17th, know Brosna Gaels are playing Shamrocks in hurling next week but seems a long time away

In my opinion something needs to be done with regard K/K and their attitude toward football. A walkover given to Walsh Island in the relegation final. Highly disrespectful towards every other club promoting football. What the likes of Bracknagh, Erin Rovers and co would do to be playing at that grade. This pattern of yo-yoing up and down the ranks is all to familiar. It is a hard one to sort but i would propose a year suspension of the club at adult level for football competitions.

St. Brigids relegated to Senior B for next year this morning also.

Presumably a combination of the hurling next week and then the minor football final on the 11th. Can't say for certain obviously, but that would be my guess.

Does this mean that the intermediate final is moved too as Erin Rovers will surely have players involved in the intermediate final on the 10th and the Minor on the 11th :?:

You'd have to imagine it would be moved all right. I'm not sure of the make up of the B/T minor team in terms of the clubs, but there's surely one or two Rovers lads in there at least. Actually, at the risk of taking the thread off topic, here's the team that played the semi-final - can anyone put clubs on the lads involved, just to get a feel for which teams have the most improvement in store over the next few years?

Appreciate that BG - interesting reading. Bodes well for Ballycumber in the future, certainly not so for Doon.

Two good games pencilled in for Saturday in OCP. Cappincur and Erin Rovers in the Inter. Final at 1.30pm and Durrow and Ballycumber in the Senior B Final at 3pm. Both games very hard to call.

Great strides by Durrow this year under Benny O'Brien. They were knocked out at semi of Intermediate last year so huge improvement this year.

I was going through the Roll of Honour on the Offaly GAA page regarding the Intermediate titles. Erin Rovers are looking to join St. Brigids at the top of the pile with 5 titles. Their last coming in 2003. Cappincur are looking for their second title and first since 1987.

I would be very eager to see a Roll of Honour for Senior B titles if anybody has any records. This championship was binned in the 90's at some stage. Anybody have further details?

The Senior 'B' football was played for five years between 1987 and 1991 inclusive. The finals were contested as follows:-

1987 Daingean beat St John's (Ballinamere-Durrow, I believe)
1988 St Rynagh's beat St John's
1989 Tubber beat Cappincur
1990 Doon beat Cappincur
1991 Cappincur beat Erin Rovers

Left this at half time, and could not believe how Durrow hadn't this in the bag! Durrow were dominant throughout and butchered a few goalscoring chances. Whilst up the other end Ballycumber were depending on their No12 (Fergal ???) along with the veteran and minor (Quinn & Lowry) inside to keep them in the game.

I heard Ballycumber kicked 2-01 in a short space of time, so Durrow will be kicking themselves. Suppose the focus will move back to the hurling next year?

Well done to Ballycumber, they should hold their own, and signs are good with good few of last weeks minors to come through and BT are in the U16 final next weekend.
