Club Championship preview: Premier Junior
Group 1: Ballyduff v Gneeveguilla. Saturday, 7pm. The North Kerry men were left reeling by a rampant six-goal Fossa last weekend, where the Clifford brothers were in rampant form.
Ballyduff also lost their discipline before the finish, and they will struggle to contain Gneeveguilla, who were held by St Pat's.
Fossa v St Pats
With the peerless David Clifford hitting 2-6 from play and brother Paudie also shining, Fossa will be on the crest of a wave heading into this encounter. St Pat's surprised a few people by holding Gneeveguilla, but they are unlikely to halt Fossa.
Ballymacelligott v St Michaels / Foilmore
This is an intriguing group, and Ballymac will have been boosted by the narrow victory over Churchill in such a hard-fought battle. The South Kerry men went down by four points to Brosna, and they could be facing another defeat.
Churchill v Brosna
Brosna will take comfort from their weekend victory and they will, once more, look to Paul Walsh and Adam Barry for attacking invention. Churchill manager William Kirby will demand a response from his team after losing to Ballymac, and home advantage may prove decisive.
Firies v Finuge
It will be difficult for Firies to pick up the pieces after such a disappointing defeat against Listry, and they will need to improve to get the better of Finuge, who recorded the narrowest of wins against Keel. This should be tight, but Finuge to shade it.
Listry v Keel
Marc Ó Sé will have been absolutely thrilled with what he witnessed from his charges in the nine-point victory over Firies, and he will want to continue to build on that winning momentum when they entertain Keel this time out. The Mid Kerry men were unlucky against Finuge, but may come up just short again.
Ballydonoghue v St Senans
Ballydonoghue were left shell-shocked by their last-gasp defeat by Skellig Rangers, and they find themselves in the last-chance saloon in this local derby. St Senans were held by Listowel Emmets in a game where they blew a decent cushion. This could be one of the matches of the weekend.
Skellig Rangers v Listowel Emmets
Skellig Rangers were considered the odd ones out in this North Kerry-dominated group, but not anymore after their stunning downing of Ballydonoghue. Emmets, with a youthful squad, now make the long trip to Ballinskelligs, buoyed by their comeback against St Senans. This will be a close one.
Verdict: Skellig Rangers
