Only the Mens’ Club in action this weekend.
South Antrim v Kilkeel
The 1sts travel down the east coast to visit Kilkeel for a 2.30pm start. Kilkeel came out on top in the first league encounter earlier this season at FSL. That game finished 4-3 with Kilkeel scoring in the closing stages to clinch the points. It will be a very different game on Kilkeel’s slower playing surface but South are up for it and keen to steal points off a side sitting comfortably sitting 2nd in the league. A Glass returns to the line up this weekend, but its Ian and not Adam, as the big man step between the posts in Mark Hutchinson’s absence.
South Antrim 2nds v Newry 2nds
The 2nds also head south on the otherside of the Moures as they take on Newry 2nds at 4pm. Captain Ian Glass will be expecting the guys to put on a performance an bring the points back north from this struggling Newry side. Ashley Sloan fills in for Ian in nets. Also missing is Chris Arnott and with Jack Redpath with the firsts, the 2nds are down to bare bones for this key encounter.
South Antrim 3rds v Campbellians 2nds
Campbellians sit 3rds in the table, 3 points behind our 3rds having played 2 extra games. Still boasting maximum points this season so far, with 22 goals scored an 2 conceded, the 3rds have a record to maintain. More importantly, they need the points to stay clear of Campbellians and regain top spot from Annadale, who have also played 2 extra games. With Captain Sloan with the 2nds, I presume Andrew Wallace is playing nets, but I could be wrong. This the 1pm hit off at FSL.
South Antrim 4ths v South Antrim 5ths
Another intra-club clash, at 2.30pm. This is where legends are made. Last time out the 4ths came out on top in a 4-1 battering of the 5ths. Alan Hamilton Jnr netted a hat-trick whilst his fierce rival, Ian McElhinney, netted the only goal for the 5ths. Trevor Wallace, 5ths captain, says he’s been eating raw eggs and training non stop, punching a sack of potatoes with Graeme Alister’s face on it. He is itching for revenge.
Whatever the score, the 3rds, 4ths and 5ths are all heading over to the Cricket Club for pints after, all Club members are welcome.
