Annaghmores hardfought point also meant they retained their Senior status as they just edgedout Sarsfields on head to head. Sarsfields ended the year with a great win athome against St Peters hitting 7-11 to St Peters 2-9 win but it wasnt enoughto stay in the division and means they will play their football in theIntermediate league next season.
Culloville got theirfirst win of the league campaign on Sunday in a goal fest against Madden, whohad their spot in the top four confirmed last weekend. The win could do nothingfor Culloville only restore some pride as they knew their fate long before a ballwas kicked at the weekend as they had already been relegated to theIntermediate league.

Shane Carragher and Ryan Garvey points drove Culloville into aseven point lead while Conor Grimley raised a green flag with the final scoreof the game to see Culloville end the season with a 5-11 to 3-13 victory. Kyle Morgan swappedscores with Niall Rowland before Madden hit a purple patch of their own,scoring three consecutive points with Conor, Ronan and Liam Grimley all hittingthe target.
What a difference ayear makes for St Patricks, last season they lost the league title toBallymacnab on head to head and this season they have been relegated toSenior B for next season by the same opposition. Although Ballymacnab came outon top they didnt have their best performance but the loss of Aidan Nugent toa red card during the second period was detrimental to Cullyhannas chances ofstaying up.
The Mac Iomhair brother Ciaran and Oisin are the key men while Connor Cullen will bolster their attacking options. League Champions Maghery will most likely top the group with three wins from three and continue to build on their league form. The Forker clan will be the ones to watch with the supporting cast of James Lavery, Ciaran Higgins, Ben Crealey and Stephen Cusack making the 2016 winners a formidable opponent. Group 3 is dj vu for Madden as they have faced both Maghery and Dromintee in their last two Championship campaigns beating Dromintee twice while falling at the hands of Maghery on both occasions. Niall Grimley will be the Raparees leader while their attacking division consisting of Conor Grimly, Aron McKenna and Ciaran Rafferty should see them secure a playoff position. Dromintee survived the drop to Senior League B with a win on the final day of the season and should be able to hold on to a playoff position in this group. Like Dromintee, Annaghmore retained their Senior status on the final day and will be confident of overcoming anyone who travels to their grounds. Cathal McKenna remains sidelined so the likes of Aaron McKay, Darren McKenna and Conor Martin will be the leaders for the south Armagh side.
BrendanBoylan and Tony McClelland share a strong midfield partnership while Ross Finnwill anchor their defence. Granemore have bounced straight back upto the top flight after their relegation last season and their blend of youthand experience around the centre of the park has helped them to do so. Last years Intermediate Champions StPeters done well in this years league, winning 6 games and will hope thestrength of Aaron Findon in midfield along with the scoring prowess of NiallMcConville will be enough to see them through to a playoff spot. They willalso hope to have Ryan McShane back in their ranks as he recovers from an ankleinjury picked up earlier in the year. Jarly Og Burns also spent the summer abroad and Silverbridge willbe keen for the county starts return. Silverbridge experienced a difficult league campaignand will look to Joe Rock and Peter Carragher to lead their charge in theChampionship. The returnof Gareth Swift this year will boost their forward division while Joe McElroy,Charlie Vernon and Declan McKenna will cause headaches for any team. Armagh Harps suffered apoor championship run last season when they were beaten by Maghery in the groupstages before being knocked out by Crossmaglen in the quarter final.
Crossmaglen will no doubt be everyones favourites to triumph above the rest in this years Senior Championship and complete their two in a row but unlike other years they wont have it all their own way. League Champions Maghery look to be the biggest challengers to the throne with Ballymacnab and Armagh Harps also looking to capture the trophy. The Senior Championship kicks off this weekend with games played on Friday, Saturday and Monday.

Senior Championship Preview
Their forward unit can cause some bother with the McGeown brothers Eamon and Paul along with Michael Stevenson but can they do enough at the other end of the field is the question. Sarsfields have already been relegated from the Senior division and will battle it out with Clann Eireann to earn the final playoff spot. Ballymacnab meanwhile will also feel they can top the group but injuries have took their toll at the tail end of the league. Last seasons Champions will have to overcome the same side they beat in the 2018 county final to secure top spot of Group 1. Clann Eireann missed out on promotion to the top flight and will open their campaign without a raft of their younger stars that have spent the summer in America, the aim will be to secure a playoff place and push on when the likes of Ryan Owens and Conor Turbitt return from the states. Rory and Jack Grugan along with Gavin McParland form a lethal attack while Captain Michael Beagan will steady the ship at the back. Crossmaglen will be favourites to land the top position and they will hope that Rian ONeill can carry his Armagh form into the club championship while Aaron Kernan is still the architect of a lot of their play.

Pearse Ogs topped section B ofthe Senior League with 11 wins from 14 games and they should be happy withtheir group. Killeavy were perhaps hailed as the easiest of the top four teams and theynow face the challenge of proving the doubters wrong. The final group isperhaps the hardest to call as Killeavy, St Patricks and Pearse Ogs will alllook to fill the top spot. They should still have enough to gain at least a play offplace in Group 4 with Aidan Nugent and Kyle Reid their main attacking threats. Unfortunately for Culloville their league campaignwill not have filled them with much hope as they won just once all year, theirwin coming on the last day. St Patricks have been challengers for the topprize for a few years but this season they suffered relegation from the topsector of the league. Niall Rowland is still the main man for Cullovilleand they will need Ryan Garvey and Shane Carragher on top form to have anychance of progressing through the group stages. Paul and Anto Duffy still lead from the front while the FreemansShea and James along with Vincy Brady will try and continue their good formbuild up during the league. Conor ONeill undoubtedly is the shining light while Kyle Mallon, JamesDonnelly and Caolan McConville are there for assistance. Justin McNulty is in hissecond year with the youthful side and he has plenty of talent at his disposal.
