Parkview still in the running

WITH two fixtures to fulfil to complete their Senior League Section 3 programme, Parkview Ladies are still in the running for promotion.

Rainey have already clinched the one automatic promotion place, but Limavady could still leap-frog Clare Dundee’s girls into the coveted runners-up spot.

With one game to play, Limavady have 30 points, only three points adrift of the Doagh girls, who however have an inferior goal difference count.

The position could be clearer tonight (Thursday, March 28) when Ballyclare and Rainey clash at the University of Ulster grounds in Jordanstown.

“This is our home match, but we were unable to obtain a booking at Foundry Lane, so that’s the reason for going to Jordanstown,” explained Clare.

“Rainey as champions will be favourites to win this one, especially as they beat us easily in Magherafelt, so if that happens then it will all depend upon how we fare in our final match against Saintfield, who are in the bottom half of the table.

“However this one will be put on the long finger until after the Easter break.

“We also have to play Rainey in the Ulster Challenge Cup in Magherafelt. This one was postponed last weekend because of the Arctic weather conditions, so it too will have to wait until after the holidays.

“If we do overcome the late Limavady league challenge, then we will be faced with a play-off against Kilkeel who have finished second from bottom in Section 2 with Raphoe already relegated,” she confirmed.
