Seeing as the Championship got going over the weekend with action in all four provinces it seems only fair, now that the dust has settled on these opening exchanges, to report on who’s come out of the traps smartest in this year’s Championship prediction mini-league.
There’s a real Mayo News football podcast – specifically the New York series – flavour to the top of the table. Jim Zoldy, who heads the table on 161 points, featured in the podcast episode recorded at Gaelic Park while Anne-Marie Flynn is, of course, a more regular participant and popped up in two of the New York episodes.
As you’d imagine, it’s all fairly bunched at the upper reaches of the table – with just four points separating first from tenth – so the fun’s only really starting. I stumbled a bit myself coming out the starting gate but I’m only twelve points off the lead so just tucked in behind the leading group … for now at least.
Here’s how the leaderboard looks after the first weekend of action.
