There’s a limited programme of club fixtures across Donegal with games running from this evening (Friday) right through until Monday.

The Junior A Championship returns this weekend with games in the two groups.

Tonight (Friday) Naomh Padraig, Muff host Moville in Group A and then on Sunday, in the same group, it’s Urris against Red Hugh’s.

The Killygordon club are leading the way in Group A with two wins from their two games so far. However, they must travel to play an Urris team who have shown much improvement in recent weeks and will be looking for nothing less than the win in what’s their final group match.

The two matches in Group B are both on Sunday afternoon with Letterkenny Gaels at home to struggling Naomh Padraig, Lifford and Naomh Colmcille hosting St. Mary’s, Convoy.

The Gaels will be expected to win their game which will guarantee them at worst, a top three finish in the group.

The meeting of Naomh Colmcille and Convoy is a key game when the final group standings are decided. Both teams are unbeaten so far and Convoy will go top of the group if they win.

Other games
In league action there’s one game in Division Two on tonight (Friday)Cloughaneely at home to Glenfin (8pm). With games in hand over the sides above them in the table, a home win for the Falcarragh club will be a major boost to their prospects of promotion.
