1sts: The men travel to Shawsbridge for a 2.30pm hit off against the competition favourites, Instonians. These two sides haven’t met in over 10 years (not counting the Super 9s final) so this will be South Antrim’s chance to take on the last of Ulster Hockey remaining heavyweights.
2nds: The 2nds first outing of the season sees them meet Junior hockey titans Bann 2s at FSL at 1pm. With Chris Mark, Darren and Mark Hutchinson all on holiday, and with James Brown and Jack Redpath promoted to the 1sts, this will be a tough game indeed.
3rds: The 3rds take on Campbellians 2nds, in the Junior 4 League Cup at home at 2.30pm. Missing a number of players themselves, the 3rds are going to find this game every bit as tough as last weeks.
4ths: Can captain Graeme Alister improve upon last weeks 14-1 win? They play Quinns 3rds away in Belfast. Ian McElhenny and Alan Hamilton Jnr will again be expected to bag 5 and 4 goals again respectively, but can they do it? Graeme Alister says YES!
5ths: The 5s are away again this week, but not quite so far, just the down the M1 to Portadown to take on their 3rds. Can they do what the 1sts failed to do, and bring the points back to Lisburn?
Ladies 1sts: They’ve already bagged their points as Ballycastle forfeited with “lack of players”. Elaine Aiken & co must be very intimidating…
Ladies 2nds: They follow the Mens 5ths down to Portadown also to play their 3rds, lets hope there’s no mix up and they play the right teams *chortle chortle*.
Good luck to all teams and well done to the Ladies 1sts who’ve already had their luck.
