Action from Lagan Harps v St. Catherine's in the Premier Division last weekend.

It might still be very early days in the title race, but already the battle for honours Brian McCormick Sports Premier Division is shaping up to be another close contest.

Amazingly only three points separate the top seven sides in the division.

Rathmullan Celtic lead the way, but after their defeat at home to Milford last weekend, their lead over Milford in 7th spot is down to just three points.

One point further back are St. Catherine’s who have found victories hard to come by this season.

Last weekend, they did well to draw at Lagan Harps (2-2) and this Sunday, they go on their travels again, they time to face fellow strugglers Castlefinn Celtic.

Perhaps the big game of the day is the meeting of Rathmullan and defending champions Drumoghill FC at The Moss.

Bottom-of-the-table Convoy Arsenal are at home to Kildrum Tigers who along with Drumoghill, remain unbeaten in the league.

Kilmacrennan Celtic are one of a number of sides who could find themselves top of the table come Sunday evening. They have a home game against Milford on Sunday.

Division One

In the Temple Domestic Appliances Division, Donegal Town and Erne Wanderers are the only sides still unbeaten. Donegal, leading the way at the top of the table, host Gweedore United on Sunday while Erne are away to Bonagee United.

Keadue Rovers, beaten last weekend in the FAI Junior Cup in Greencastle, have a home match against fellow strugglers Glenree United while in the other games, Cappry Rovers host Raphoe Town and Deele Harps play Gweedore Celtic.

In the CT Ball Division, the leaders Ballybofey are away to Copany on Sunday and if they were to slip up, second-placed Dunkineely Celtic would go top if they beat Drumkeen United.

Lifford Celtic, another team who are going well this year, are at home to Letterbarrow while in the other games, Eany Celtic are away to Cranford and Whitestrand host Curragh Athletic.
