Glarryford suffered a surprise defeat at St Patrick’s Ballymena last week.

But their mood would have improved dramatically when they heard news that Buckna - the only other team who can still win the title - were whitewashed at Glenwherry.

Even if Buckna win their remaining games in hand by 5-0 margins, Glarryford can wrap up the title if they collect three-and-a-half points from their final game at home to Harryville Men’s Fellowship.
