South Antrim v NICS
The firsts’ final Kirk Cup group game is against NICS this weekend at 3pm at FSL. Inst have qualified with a game to spare, though play Portadown on Saturday, who have 3 points, Newry have finished on 3 points and are out as NICS have 6 currently. We sit on 3 points as well, so a win puts us in contention as we’d finish level with NICS, I’ve no idea what happens then though. With a lot to play for, this is sure to be a cracker of a game.
South Antrim 2nds v Annadale 2nds
Another hard fixture for the 2s this week as they take on Annadale 2nds away. Out of the cup now, the seconds will be looking to learn all they can about their opponents before facing them in the league later in the season.
South Antrim 3rds v Mossley 4ths
Having won one and lost one in the Junior 4 League cup, its all to play for for the 3rds. This weekend sees them take on Mossley 4ths away. Short corner specialist George Glass is 1 from 1 so far after his goal against Kilkeel in the opening round, so winning shorts could be key for a South win.
South Antrim 4ths v Down 1sts
Lets hope Gaz Alister can get back to winning ways this weekend. Another ex-Senior 2 team awaits though, in the form of Down 1sts. The young fourths an expect a physical battle, the all out pace of Kurtis Gamble should cause all sorts of problems for the Down defence.
South Antrim 5ths v Antrim 3rds
The 5ths end the weekends games with a 4pm hit off against Antrim 3rds. The 5ths also have a dangerous short corner team, with both John Massey and Peter Davis capable of hammering the ball. They were very impressive last week against Mossley 5ths, Trevor Wallace may well think about starting with the 2 hour warm up again.
South Antrim Ladies v Parkview Ladies
On a roll after consecutive victories (albeit one a forfeit), the Ladies will be looking keep hold of 1st place in Senior 4. They play Parkview away this weekend. Parkview sit 3rd in the league with 3 points, coming against PSNI, whom South beat 4-0 last week in a stellar display.
South Antrim Ladies 2nds v Grosvenor Ladies 4ths
The Ladies currently sit mid table in Junior 7. With a team nearly entirely made up of school girls, every game is a learning experience for the girls who are getting their first taste of Senior hockey. Though with last season’s club top scorer Amy Wright in the side they can be sure to net a few goals!
One last thing, Membership fees are now due. You have til the end of the month else you can’t play. That would be bad craic, so just pay up.
