South Antrim v Raphoe
The 1sts travel to County Donegal this weekend to play fellow promotees Raphoe. Captain Lee Marshall is back fit to lead the team and Chris Redpath also returns. Raphoe recorded a surprise 3-1 away win over Belfast Harlequins on the opening weekend so they not to be trifled with. Hit off is at 2.30pm for our travelling fans.
South Antrim 2nds v Kilkeel 2nds
The seconds host Kilkeel 2nds at 1pm at FSL. All eyes are on Neil Wilson to see if he can continue his scoring run and oust Ian McElhenny as top goal scorer. Although yet to win a game, the seconds have been very impressive in their cup campaign, getting good results against the big names, but this is the League now, and narrow losses don’t get points on the board, the boys will need to be on top form.
South Antrim 3rds v Cookstown 5ths
The 3rds are home to Cookstown 5ths. The 3rds finished 3rd in their Junior League 4 Cup group, not high enough to progress. Cookstown 5ths finished 4th in the other group, so this should be an even game. Can Kurtis Gamble play the hero for the second week in a row?
South Antrim 4ths v Antrim 3rds
The 4ths have qualified from Group B for their League Cup, so we’ll keenly track their progress in the Semi-finals later in the season. This however, is their opening league game so will need to grab the points from this game on home turf. Antrim 3rds finished bottom of their group with a solitary point, obtained from our 5ths. Surely this is goal city for Ian MacElhenny and Stu Glenn?
South Antrim 5ths v North Down 5ths
The 5ths travel to Comber to take on North Down 5ths. This is the team that the 4s recorded their infamous 14-1 win against just a month ago. Trevor Wallace will be quietly confident of a win for his team. Simon Taggart and Adam Glass Junior seem to be the go to players for goals so they should enjoy this outing.
BREAKING NEWS: North Down can’t field a team and the 5ths take the points, rumour has it their players cowered in fear at the prospect of playing against Trevor Wallace and his cronies.
South Antrim Ladies v Ballynahinch Ladies
Looking to keep their run going after hammering Cooke Ladies last weekend, the Ladies face Ballynahinch away. Hopefully key players Zara Carson and Alex Dugan won’t be too haannngiinnn’ after their Formal during the week. Ballynahinch have yet to win a game so far this season, good news for the girls in black and red.
South Antrim Ladies 2nds v Mossley Ladies 4ths
The Ladies 2nds host Mossley 4ths as they look to climb the table, this Mossley team is currently in 5th position in the league, one below the South team, though only by goal difference as both teams have 6 points. Key player Lucy Fitzpatrick is a doubt to be back in time from a school trip to Spain to make the game, the team captain is reportedly questioning her commitment to the team.
