Kinvara v Abbeyknockmoy, Sun 1st Sept in Clarinbridge at 6:00pm

John Linnane's Junior B's play their final group match in this years Junior B Championship, and although they are already qualified there is still much to play for.

With Salthill and Kinvara already through, the battle behind continues with Abbeyknockmoy, Craughwell, Clarinbirdge and Sarsfields fighting over the remaining two sports.

A win for Kinvara over Abbeyknockmoy will give a good boost and confidence ahead of the knockout stages. Also, there is fierce competition for places on this Junior B team and this match will give some a chance to lay down a marker.  
Abbeyknockmoy are always tough opponents and we can expect a lively contest this evening. They currently sit in 3rd place in the group table, but will need a win here to secure a place in the knockout stages.

- the Junior B championship this year consists of 24 teams.
- broken down into 3 groups of 8.
- top four teams in each group qualify for championship knockout stages (bottom 4 play in Shield)
- So, therefore there will be 12 teams qualifying.
- 4 sides will be drawn to go straight to quarterfinals (we believe that this is open draw?)
- the remaining 8 teams play in four preliminary quarter-final matches.
