Dr Crokes and Austin Stacks clash in SFL Division 1 Final

The Credit Union Senior Football League Division 1 Final is down for decision on Saturday next (2:30) when old adversaries Dr Crokes and Austin Stacks clash at Lewis Road. The Killarney side, finished a point ahead of their rivals in the table thus ensuring themselves of home venue for the final. Since both sides were involved in County Championship quarter final action back on the October Bank Holiday weekend their paths have taken very different directions. Dr Crokes have gone on to reclaim the Bishop Moynihan Cup and have since qualified for the Munster Club final while their opponents, defeated by Kenmare District in that quarter final encounter, have had to sit back and watch their opponents successes. 

Dr Crokes are the reigning champions having defeated their opponents in the 2015 final last March and no doubt, despite their heavy schedule of matches in recent times, they will not want to lose to their arch rivals especially on their home patch. While this fixture has been signalled for quite some time now, it remains to be seen what intensity The Rock will bring to this game given their seven weeks of inactivity, however, both of these sides invariably bring the best out of each other and it should be a case of more of the same on Saturday evening in Lewis Rd.
