Clann and St Brigid's to face off in Roscommon SFC

Perennial rivals Clann na nGael and St Brigid's have been drawn in the same group of this year's Roscommon SFC.

Both teams are under new management this year, with former Limerick and Laois manager Liam Kearns in charge of Clann, and Benny O'Brien over the Kiltoom men. The other teams in Group A are Strokestown and Elphin.

Defending Roscommon champions Padraig Pearses are drawn in Group C alongside Boyle, Michael Glavey's and Tulsk Lord Edwards.

The other group consists of Roscommon Gaels, St Croan's, Western Gaels and Fuerty.

The Roscommon Senior and Intermediate football championships both consist of three groups of four teams.

The top two teams from each group will qualify for the quarter-finals. The two third-placed teams with the best record will also qualify for the quarter-finals.

If two teams finish on the same points, then the team with the better scoring difference will qualify. If the teams are on the same scoring difference, then the team with the greater amount of 'scores for' will qualify; if two clubs have scored the same amount scored, then they will take part in a play-off to decide who qualifies.

The bottom team in each group will take part in play-offs to decide which team is relegated.

All knockout games up to the county finals will be 'finish on the day'. If a knockout game ends level, extra-time of two ten-minute periods will be played and if teams are still level, this will be followed by two five-minute periods. If teams are still level at the end of the additional extra-time, the outcome will be decided by a penalty shoot-out.

County finals will have extra-time of two ten-minute halves and should the teams be still level, then there will be a replay with the date to be decided by the Roscommon Competitions Control Committee (CCC).
