Milford Utd return to action with trip to Gweedore

The joint leaders in the Donegal League Premier Division, Milford United, play their first game of 2016 on Sunday away to Gweedore Celtic, writes Rory Boyce.

Milford were joined at the top of the Brian McCormick Sports Division last weekend by Castlefin Celtic who drew at Kilmacrenann.

Sunday serves up another busy programme of fixtures with action in all three divisions.

Premier Division

Drumoghill will be confident in knocking top of the league Castlefin off their perch after a 2 0 victory against Cappry Rovers last time out. Castlefin Celtic will be looking to get back to winning ways after a 2-2 draw with Kilmacrennan last weekend.


Gweedore Celtic welcome high-flying Milford United on Sunday. Gweedore shared the points with St Catherine's and with a string of good results, could see themselves climb higher in the table. They face a Milfrod United side that's fresh from a free weekend. Indeed Milford haven't played since prior to the Christmas and New Year break.

Elsewhere, Kildrum take on Rathmullan this weekend with Kildrum hoping to pick up on some momentum after a poor 3-0 defeat to Glenea United last Sunday. Rathmullan will also be hoping to catch some form after their 3-0 exit to Regional United in the FAI Junior Cup.

Glenea visit Kilmacrennan with the Glasserchoo club enjoying their first league win against Kildrum Tigers last week while Kilmacrennan's spirits will be high after a dramatic 2-2 draw with Castlefin Celtic last week.

A win for either team could be the foundation for the start of a good run of results.

And there's a big game at Emerald Park where St. Catherine's meet second from bottom, Cappry Rovers.

Cappry put up a good performance against high-flying Drumoghill last week but were unlucky to walk away with a 2-0 defeat.



In the Temple Domestic Appliances Division One, Bonagee United welcome Keadue to the Showgrounds this week with both teams enjoying success last time out.

Top faces bottom in Division One this weekend as Convoy Arsenal welcome Lifford Celtic with Convoy hoping to stretch their lead at the top of the table.

Elsewhere Cranford F.C face Kerrykeel 71, Donegal town travel to high flying Gweedore United and there's a local derby as Lagan Harps take on Raphoe Town with both teams enjoying high scoring wins last time out.

In the CT Ball Division 2, Dunkineely Celtic welcome Ballybofey United this weekend with Dunkineely spirits high after an impressive 4-1 victory last time out.

Eany Celtic take on Copany Rovers, league leaders Glenree United face Deele Harps and Erne Wanderers visit Letterbarrow Celtic.

In the final game, Whitestrand United play Curragh Athletic with Whitestrand hoping to bounce back after their 5-0 defeat to Deele Harps last weekend.
