LIVE BLOG: SFC relegation final between Ballyfin Gaels and Clonaslee St Manmans Gaels

McCann Park is the venue for tonight's JFC semi final replay

Brought to you in association with Cllr Tom Mulhall

It is the final that absolutely nobody wants to be in.

This year’s SFC relegation final is between two Gaels teams – Ballyfin and Clonaslee-St Manman’s.

Ballyfin have the Slieve Bloom contingent with them while Clonaslee have formed an unlikely partnership with Annanough.

Both Slieve Bloom and Annanough are set to be in finals at their own level in the next two weeks so it will be very interesting to see how many, if any at all, make themselves available for selection on either side here.

Clonaslee lost to Killeshin, Stradbally and Arles-Killeen to get here while Ballyfin were defeated by Portlaoise, Crettyard Gaels and The Heath.

Barry Roche is suspended for the latter while James Finn, who missed the loss against The Heath, is also back in the Middle East.

But over the last number of years, Clonaslee, and latterly Clonaslee Gaels, have been masters of escaping relegation and perhaps they will do the same here.

Follow all the action as it happens below:
