Cavan Town are the runaway leaders of the Monaghan/Cavan Premier Division with an impressive record of played seven games, victorious in six, with only the one loss. This is largely down to the goals of both Packie Sheridan and Callum Lynch who have both notched 14 and 12 goals respectively adding to impressive tally of 35 goals in just seven games.
Monaghan Town are second five points behind their Cavan rivals with the same number of games played. Clones Town are hot on their heels just one point behind with Killylough in fourth position a further four pints behind Monaghan Town.
Sporting Ballyjamesduff are second bottom on four points whereas Killymooney lie at the foot of the premier division with just one win from their six games so far.
November is the first month where due diligence can be paid to the table standings as teams begin their chase for the league title while some aim to turn their fortunes around and hope to move away from the drop zone.
The First Division is also topped by Cavan town who seem to have monopolised both divisions, however things are tighter as Ballyhaise Celtic just lie a solitary point behind having both played six games.
Glaslough Villa have started at a reasonable pace and find themselves three points off the top in third whereas Monaghan United remain in fourth spot with a total of eight points.
Cootehill Harps have managed seven points from their first six games, and they lie above both Sporting Ballyjamesduff and Cavan Town who occupy the bottom two.
The winter months prove to be the test for any league winning side. A lot can change in a couple of games and teams who can put a run of successive victories will find themselves shooting up the table in double quick time.
What is for certain, with the influx of a lot of cup games along with harsh winter conditions, teams with decent squad depth will be required to rotate in what should be a fascinating couple of months in local junior football.
