Adult Football League 3 (AFL3) 2017


Well done Finns. Going to be very tight for playoff spots, with only 2 points separating Finbarrs, Boughal, Parnells, Lusk and Barrog.


going to be a huge game between Ballyboughal and Lusk with the winners most likely taking the final playoff spot tasty local derby also


Yes, Lusk’s fate is in their own hands, with 2 home games left against Boughal and Finbarrs.




i think ballyboughal will beat lusk by 3 or 4 points


Battle lines being drawn ?


That’s serious fighting talk right there.


no connection to either club having seen both play this year i feel boughal are a better team


Heard ballyboughal beat lusk well.


Barrog beat Syls well too


Some scoring by Barrog and finbarrs tonight!


Yeah, Boughal won by 12 I think.


Is it neutral or is it the two highest teams get a home draw.?


Strange comment Whacker. Its odd that they are alot better than the 3 teams you mentioned but lost to 2 of them and drew with one of them this season.

Finbars look to be favourites. Racking up good scores. But in the playoffs anybody can beat anybody.


two highest get home advantage.


Is the playoff final neutral venue or do the team that finished highest in the league get home advantage?


Highest in the league gets home advantage


Are round towers Lusk out of the running for the playoffs if they beat finbarrs and barrog lost to ballymun


If Towers & Barrog finish on the same points, it should go on the result of their league match, so Barrog would go through on head to head.

Towers need to beat Finbarrs and Parnells need to lose both their remaining games to make the playoffs as far as I can see.
