1sts: No game, on their Kirk Cup rest week as the other four teams duel it out.
2nds: With the 1sts not having a match, this weekend’s headline game is the 2s vs Lisnagarvey 3rds at FSL. This week with a full squad to pick from, Captain Ian Glass will be looking to improve upon last weekend’s encouraging performance.
3rds: The 3s travel to the Glade to take on Mossley 4ths in the Junior 4 League Cup. Having won one and lost one so far, this is an important game to keep their trophy hopes alive. Now without Steveo McKenzie due to a broke finger obtain against Kilkeel, Ashley Sloan will have to rejig his defence.
4ths: He did it in Lisburn, but can he do it on a cold rainy afternoon in Ballymena? That is the question everyone is asking of 4ths captain Graeme Alister, can he lead his team to a 3rd successive win in the Cup against Ballymena 1sts? Free scoring Ian McElhenny will be key. Self dubbed ‘sharp-shooter’ Stuart Glenn will also be hoping to get on the score sheet for the 3rd game on the trot.
5ths: Trevor Wallace will be looking to bounce back after last week’s defeat, the 5ths take on Mossley 5ths at home. Let’s hope his team can bounce the ball off the Mossley backboard a few times and get the win.
Ladies 1sts: They travel to Stormont to take on the PSNI, having won their last game by forfeit, this will be the Ladies first outing of the season. The coachwill be hoping their big contingent of Schoolgirl players will be back in time make the trip.
2nds: Having been beaten by the narrowest of margins in their opening two games, the Ladies 2s will be hoping this is the week to bag a win! They are at home to Banbridge 4ths.
As always, we hope you come down early or stick about after your game to support your club mates, the Balcony Banter is second to none, be part of it. #RABA #OTIL
