South Antrim v Instonians
The first play Inst at home (3pm) this weekend. Things didn’t go too well for South last time against Inst, losing 7-0. This time to boys know what they’re up against and can plan for it. The lads sit mid table, 6th, so far in their debut season in the UPL. Inst sit top, having won every game and conceded just 3 goals. The 1sts will welcome back Chris Redpath after injury.
South Antrim 2nds v Cork Harlequins 2nds
Thankfully a home draw against Cork Quins in the Irish Junior Cup (2pm). This will be a tasty encounter, not least because Willy has a crate full of Subway sandwiches for the Cork team after, but since these two side should be very evenly matched. Neil Wilson will be looking to continue scoring and help the 2nds progress. Whilst Ian Glass will look to continue his fine form in nets, we must not forget Ian has only been a goalkeeper for 5 months, credit where credit is due, he really has shone.
South Antrim 3rds v Cliftonville 2nds
The replay of the match cancelled 2 weeks ago. The 3s just beat this same side 4-1 last week and will look to repeat the feat. Ashley Sloan returning can only boost the hopes of the high flying 3rds who are still sitting top of the league, level with Annadale 4ths on 18 points but having a game in hand. Away at 4pm.
South Antrim 4ths v Down 1sts
Hopefully Junior will be available this weekend as he aims to score yet again. The 4ths sit 3rd in Junior 5 but all the teams have playing varying amounts of games its impossible to tell their situations. All they can do is keep winning, unfortunately Down 1sts are top of the league, but to be the best you’ve got to beat the best. Home game at 1pm.
South Antrim 5ths v Mossley 5ths
Another South team plays a Mossey side this weekend, this time its the 5ths turn. The 4ths drew 3-3 with this side last week, can the 5ths do one better? The 5ths have lost their last 4 games on the trot, can Trev turn it round?
South Antrim Ladies 1sts v No Game
No game as River Island are having a sale.
South Antrim 2nds v Owls 2nds
A Minor Cup tie for the only Ladies team in action this weekend. Captain Nicole Bell will have a full roster to pick from. These two teams have met in the league and South came out on top on that occasion thanks to a Laura McConnell goal.
South Antrim Ladies 3rds v No Game
No game as Topshop are having an even bigger sale than River Island.
