Preview: Weekend's Club Gaelic Football Championship action

Armagh Senior Football Championship Final

Sunday September 13

Crossmaglen Rangers v Maghery, Athletic Grounds, 4pm

Crossmaglen Rangers have stitched back to back titles together, but will be primed for an interesting battle with Maghery.

With Stephen Kernan in charge Crossmaglen have enjoyed an encouraging campaign, but they will know about Maghery's significant ability.

Winners in 2016 and beaten finalists a year later Maghery have been serious contenders in Armagh recently.

Managed by the well regarded Finnian Moriarty, Maghery did beat Cross in the Armagh League by a point two months ago.

Down Senior Football Championship

Sunday September 13

Ballyholland v Carryduff, Pairc Esler, 3pm

Warrenpoint v Kilcoo, Pairc Esler, 7pm

Warrenpoint defeated holders Kilcoo earlier on in the Down SFC so Sunday's encounter is loaded with importance.

It should be a very interesting affair in Newry between two teams eager to advance.

Galway Senior Football Championship Quarter-Finals

Saturday September 12

Corofin v Salthill-Knocknacarra, Pearse Stadium, 2.30pm

Tuam Stars v Barna, Pearse Stadium, 5.30pm

Sunday September 13

Mountbellew-Moylough v Killannin, Pearse Stadium, 2.30pm

Maigh Cuilinn v St James', Pearse Stadium, 5.30pm

Corofin haven't suffered a defeat in the Galway SFC since 2012.

So unsurprisingly they enter Saturday's contest with a youthful Salthill-Knocknacarra outfit as the warmest of favourites.

Other interesting matches include an emerging Barna against 2019 beaten finalists Tuam Stars.

Leitrim Senior Football Championship Semi-Finals

Fenagh St Caillins v Mohill, Avantcard Pairc Sean MacDiarmada, 6pm

Sunday September 13

Glencar-Manorhamilton v St Mary's, Avantcard Pairc Sean MacDiarmada, 4.30pm

It has been an eventful few months in Leitrim sprinkled with surprise results.

Fenagh St Caillins have made huge strides, but Mohill are an experienced team.

Holders Glencar-Manorhamilton face St Mary's in another eagerly anticipated tussle.

Dublin Senior Football Championship Semi-Finals

Saturday September 12

Ballyboden St Enda's v St Jude's, Parnell Park, 5.30pm

Sunday September 13

Ballymun Kickhams v Kilmacud Crokes, Parnell Park, 4.30pm

Two extremely attractive matches are imminent in the capital.

All four clubs remaining in the hunt will believe that silverware can be attained.

Ballymun Kickhams, powered by so many crafty Dublin players, have enjoyed the new format, but they face a Kilmacud Crokes team that has been in impressive form.

On Saturday holders Ballyboden St Enda's face the Kevin McManamon inspired St Jude's.

Carlow Senior Football Championship

Friday September 11

Palatine v Old Leighlin, Netwatch Cullen Park, 7.30pm

Saturday September 12

Tinryland v Rathvilly, Netwatch Cullen Park, 7pm

Sunday September 13

Mount Leinster Rangers v Eire Og, Netwatch Cullen Park, 1.30pm

Bagenalstown Gaels v O'Hanrahans, Netwatch Cullen Park, 6pm

The Carlow SFC commenced last weekend and Sunday's game involving Eire Og and Mount Leinster Rangers should be interesting.

County hurling champions Mount Leinster Rangers started smartly in the football too, but Eire Og, with Joe Murphy at the helm, are extremely organised.

Westmeath Senior Football Championship Semi-Finals

Sunday September 13

Tyrrellspass v Athlone, TEG Cusack Park, 2pm

St Loman's v The Downs, TEG Cusack Park, 5.30pm

With Liam McHale managing, Athlone have shown signs of improvement in 2020.

Without a Westmeath title since 1998, Athlone face Tyrrellspass, who have been serious competitors in the intervening years.

Another Mayo native, John O'Mahony, is in charge of The Downs, who play St Loman's.

The Kildare SFC restarted again last weekend following an enforced spell of inactivity.

Holders Sarsfields and arch rivals Moorefield are amongst the clubs motoring smoothly.

Kerry Senior Football Championship Semi-Finals

Friday September 11

East Kerry v St Brendan's, Austin Stack Park, 7.30pm

Saturday September 12

Dr Crokes v Mid Kerry, Austin Stack Park, 7pm

David Clifford is suspended for holders East Kerry, who face a talented St Brendan's outfit in Tralee on Friday evening.

The other Kerry semi-final should be equally interesting with Dr Crokes facing Mid Kerry.

Crokes will be without Tony Brosnan, who has been in prolific scoring form, due to injury.

Tipperary Senior Football Championship Semi-Final

Saturday September 12

Loughmore-Castleiney v Moyle Rovers, Boherlahan, 4.30pm

It has been a remarkable stint for Loughmore-Castleiney, who have already reached the Tipperary SHC decider.

Moyle Rovers, though, were victorious in 2018 and remain a competent team.

Between 2013 and 2016 Loughmore-Castleiney did claim three titles, and the McGrath brothers are shrewd operators.

Clare Senior Football Championship Semi-Finals

Saturday September 12

Kilmurry-Ibrickane v Lissycasey, Cusack Park, 2pm

Sunday September 13

Cratloe v St Breckans, Cusack Park, 5.45pm

Delighted following a stirring quarter-final success, Cratloe will be eager to build on that performance against St Breckan's.

Kilmurry-Ibrickane, who have played in three of the last four Clare deciders, face Lissycasey.
