Dublin Junior A Football Championship (JFC A) 2017


#21

As did Vincents a year or two before. Cuala won it from AFL6 beating Monica’s who were AFL3 not so long ago either.


#22

I’ve a 100 notes that says I’m right that a Div 4 team will win this. You cover that and you’ve got a bet.


#23

Well I disagree. Nice way of glossing over tipping div 5 raheny for glory


#24

so thats a no then ?


#25

Monica’s were AFL4 that year and have been since.


#26

Agree with sehan,teams at top of 5 are a match for most of div 4.We beat finians last Sunday and it was only players from our afl5 team involved


#27

I’m talking about this year though.


#28

Being a Div 5 player myself I wouldn’t consider playing in this a waste of time. You get to test yourself against players playing at a higher standard which is always a great barometer of your own standard and were you can improve. We beat Monica’s last Sunday who are a Div 4 team, albeit it towards the end of the table.


#29

Are there many Div 4 teams left in it?


#30

St.Brigids


#31

I wouldn’t have thought so unless they were very complacent against us. We Whitehall (division 6) had a young relatively inexperienced team out and it took a referee with a dodgy watch to bring it to extra time…


#32

Think following the next round of fixtures only 2 afl4 teams will be left at most. So @TheLoneRanger I might hold you to that bet with a reduced stake :slight_smile:


#33

Quite happy with my stake


#34

I don’t accept that. All referees in the north county are by the book and would never assist the home team in any way.


#35

You’re probably right. It was most likely the altitude which caused his watch to malfunction…


#36

TSS & NAF the teams to beat for me - both solid Div5 outfits


#37

TSS will win it. A lot of good players!!


#38

BALLYBODEN ST ENDAS-ST PEREGRINES
Should win well IMO

ST OLIVER PLUNKETTS ER-MAN O WAR
Could be a close one but think MOW will edge it

NA FIANNA-KILMACUD CROKES
Another close one but i think NF will be too good

BALLYMUN KICKHAMS-TEMPLEOGUE SYNGE STREET
TSS to win well IMO
PARNELLS-ROUND TOWERS C
Towers at a canter here


#39

Does someone get a bye with there only being 5 teams left after this weekend


#40

No! Three teams have already qualified for the next round. These games were delayed due to preliminary games.
