Premier Division Survival To Be Decided Sunday

As the North Tipperary & District League Premier Division reaches its climax this weekend, the only question that remains unanswered is, who is going to retain their Premier Division status? Ballymackey Fc, Cloughjordan Fc or Portumna Town.

Only three points separate the bottom three with one game remaining, Ballymackey in the driving seat with 11 points, albeit with no games remaining. Chasing them are Cloughjordan (9 points) and Portumna (8 points). Both sides face tough away trips as they face BT Harps and Nenagh Celtic respectively knowing anything but a win in either game will result In relegation.

Clough travel to Priory place knowing a win will guarantee survival against a Harps side that have struggled in recent weeks, seeing their title and cup hopes dashed for the season.

Portumna cannot guarantee survival even if they beat a resurgent Nenagh Celtic as the best they can hope for is a play-off with Ballymackey if Cloughjordan fail to beat Harps.

Both games kick off at 11.30am on Sunday.
