Fair play on the scores.
Skerries beating Jude’s looks a bit of a shock.
Nice one Clubber. Appreciated.
Any score Syls vs Cuala??
A bit tight in the end from skerries but were up 7 points at half time. Down to 13 men for the last 15 but managed to scrape a win.
Will certainly give Kilmacud a rattle
Syls 1-6 Cuala 4-10
Ballymun a few ex senior lads playing? Good result
Scanning results spotted something a little bit strange. In some(but not all) of the groups one team got two home matches for r1 & r2, in the ifc Clontarf got this advantage and won both matches, so did Brigids(lost both). Same thing in sfc 2 with Ravens & Mary’s each getting two home games. I thought that maybe this happened because the two r1 winners were fixed to play each other in r2 (and the two losers also to avoid dead rubbers in r3 which with relegation in play does not make sense) but in the ifc group 2 the two winners were not fixed to play each other in r2. Either way its a bit unfair. Not a factor in sfc1 with neutral venues.
Yeah, luck of the draw unfortunately. Could they look at using the middle round as a nuetral venue across the board?
So say example that IFC Group
Clontarf v Ballymun - in Clontarf
TSS v Lucan - In TSS
Clontarf v TSS - in Ballymun
Ballymun v Lucan - in Clontarf
Lucan v Clontarf - in Lucan
Ballymun v TSS - In Ballymun
Each team has one home, one neutral.and one away, the winning team from each round 1 game is obliged to provide the neutral venue for Round 2. Problem solved and could be implemented across the board
Good idea to have 1 home 1 away and 1 neutral. Having two home games is already a huge advantage but having your first two games at home is crazy(and another team having their first two away!) and could clearly be avoided, what’s strange is that this has happened in some groups and not in others. You have 4 groups of 4 teams across maybe 12 football championships so almost 50 groups. You would think they would have used a generic fixture sheet for all the groups ie r1-a v b & c v d, r2-b v c & d v a, r3- c v a & d v b. Then the luck of the draw is as teams are pulled out of the hat and they are placed in the a, b, c or d slots. Another thing is that all the finals should be at neutral venues.
I see Lucan gave Clontarf a walkover, seems mad that could happen at intermediate level for a club of their size, one of the last games of football lads would be playing till next year
Second teams can be a nightmare to manage in some clubs lads
Kilmacud beat Skerries Harps a bit more convincingly in the inters than they did in the Seniors today.
Wins for Castleknock, Ballymun and Vincents (by a point) as well.
Might have it wrong but is that the lineup for 1/4 ?
Crokes v Ballymun
Clontarf v Boden
Na Fianna v Vincent’s
Castleknock V Cuala
Vincent’s beat Plunketts by a point yesterday I believe, so would be them playing Na Fianna, aside from that looks right to me
