South Antrim v North Down
A very important match for the Men’s 1sts, this is a chance to put real distance between themselves and the bottom of the table teams. Last time these sides met, South ran our 5-3 victors. Though Captain Lee Marshall will look for a much improved performance in this game over recent games in the league. This is a 2.30pm away game in Comber.
South Antrim 2nds v Lisnagarvey 2nds
The reverse fixture of last week’s game. This time South play host to Garvey 2nds. Despite a decent performance last time out, South fell to a 7-0 defeat. Ian Glass will try to get his players to keep Garvey’s key players quiet, such as Mark Raphael, if that’s even possible. South’s own danger men, Chris Arnott and Mark Conn will look to out pace and out run Garvey’s back line to cause problems. A 1pm game at FSL.
South Antrim 3rds v Annadale 4ths
A top of the table clash in Junior 4, a proverbial 6 pointer between 1st and 2nd place. South 3rds will hope to recover from last week’s shock defeat at the hands of Newry 2nds/3rds. George Glass will be aiming to score for the 9th game in a row. A prime time 2.30pm hit off at FSL
South Antrim 4ths v No Game
South Antrim 5ths v Portadown 3rds
These sides meet in the Minor cup next weekend so its a good chance for Trevor Wallace to sound out the opposition and create a dossier on how to approach the cup game. Have fallen to an unexpected defeat at the hands of Quins 3rds last week, the young 5ths must bounce back and make up for those lost points. This is the late 4pm hit off at FSL.
South Antrim Ladies v Ballynahinch Ladies
Rumour has it that midweek birthday girl Joanne Clarke (26) wished for a win this weekend. Ballynahinch is historically a tough game for South Ladies, always close and hard fought. Hinch took the spoils in the previous game this season in a 1-0 win. If South are serious about a play off spot for promtion, then this is a must win tie. Whether Jo wished for it or not, this is not going to be an easy game.
South Antrim Ladies 2nds v Grosvenor Ladies 4ths
The girls have tumbled down the table unfortunately. They were play-off candidates early in the season but are now safe in mid table in 5th. Grosvenor are just one place below and a loss could see them rise above us in the table.
South Antrim Ladies 3rds v Holywood Ladies 2nds
Another chance for the new ladies 3rds to get some points, they face fellow bottom half team Holywood 2nds. The 3rds are still awaiting a first win in their short history, but every game is an opportunity.
