MD Sports Kildare Senior Football League, Division 2 we’re currently in second place (See below) and play Kilcock who are third placed on Saturday 15th of July away in Kilcock. The spoils to the winner of this crucial game is a spot in the league final against Clogherinkoe, a draw will mean that it will depend on the results from other games.
The winner of Division two gets a chance in a playoff against the fifth from the bottom team from Division one, and the second placed team gets a playoff against the division one sixth from the bottom.
This means potentially two teams from division two could get promotion. Noel Mooney Senior Bainisteoir Saint Kevin’s feels “That we’d have targeted the league final this year early on and we’re close to that and that gives us games against stronger teams before the next round of the championship as well”
Finally a note on next years (2017) Kildare Senior Football League, the league will be re-arranged as follows, Division 1 will consist of Eleven teams, (this will be a total reduction of five teams down from sixteen) and only two possible promotion spots from Division 2 this year. Division 2 will not only home these demoted five teams but will also be reduced to ten teams (so six teams will be demoted from Division 2). These smaller divisions will mean a much more competitive league competition with every game being important.
