Fixtures confirmed for July start to new-look Limerick junior football championship

New-look Limerick JAFC commences this July

FIXTURES have been confirmed for round one of the new-look Limerick Junior A Football Championship.

The round one games are to take place on July 5-7.

There are 20 teams in the restructured all-county format with four groups. Six of the teams are the second string of senior clubs - Ballylanders, Fr Caseys, Oola, Monaleen, Pallasgreen and Newcastle West.

In the new-look JAFC the top team in each group will advance directly to the county quarter finals – those finishing in second and third will be involved in a play-off to complete the quarter final line-up. The bottom team in each group will find themselves in the relegation battle.

The new structure is in place for a two year trial.

Group 1: Crecora-Manister, Hospital-Herbertstown, Kildimo-Pallaskenry, Kilteely-Dromkeen and Newcastle West.

Group 2: Bruree, Fr Caseys, Monagea, Oola, Pallasgreen.

Group 3: Ballylanders, Cappagh, Cappamore, Fedamore, Monaleen.

Group 4: Ahane, Ballybricken-Bohermore, Ballybrown, Croom, South Liberties.
