Friday 6th August

Reserve ‘Cup(all games at 7.30pm)

Group One

St Mary’s Aghagallon v Lamh Dhearg

With no points to date in the competition Aghagallon will be seeking a better return this time as they welcome Lamh Dhearg.

Lamh Dhearg have gained a full return of points to date and they may well continue on the winning trail in this one unless the St Mary’s side show big improvement.

Gort na Mona v Kickham’s Creggan

Despite an opening win over the visiting Aghagallon, Creggan have failed to add to their total in a couple of outings since and they will be hoping for a second win when they visit Gort na Mona

Gort na Mona have failed to gain a win in this competition and although home advantage may well aid their cause a win for the Kickham’s men looks the most likely conclusion.

Casement’s Portglenone v Erin’s Own Cargin

Casement’s have impressed with back to back wins to date and they will look to continue in such positivity in this one as Cargin visit.

Cargin recorded a comprehensive victory over the visiting Aghagallon and will travel to Portglenone in search of further success and although the Bannsider’s will give the Toome men plenty to ponder on the visitors may well gain a narrow verdict.

Group Two

St Brigid’s v St Gall’s

St Gall’s lead the way in this section albeit on score difference over St Brigid’s and their South Belfast based rivals will travel to Milltown seeking to leap frog their hosts.

St Brigid’s lost at Hightown last time to St Enda’s and they will hope for a better return this time, but the home side may well retain top spot with victory over their visitors.

St Enda’s Glengormley v O’ Donovan Rossa

St Enda’s recorded a victory over the visiting St Brigid’s last time and will look to continue on such positivity as Rossa visit Hightown.

The Shaw’s road side have one win in the competition to date and in the current climate a home win looks the most likely scenario.

Reserve Shield (all games at 7.30pm)

Group One

St Joseph’s Glenavy v St Paul’s

Glenavy moved to second place in this group with a win over previously unbeaten Tir na nOg last time out and the Chapel Hill side will look forward to this visit of St Pauls in a positive mood.

St Paul’s have one win from their three fixtures to date and although the Shaw’s road men are not to be discounted, a home win does look the most likely result.

St James Aldergrove v Tir na Nog Randalstown

Aldergrove lead the way in this section and they will look forward to this one as Tir na Nog visit Crumlin.

The Randalstown side lost for the first time last time out to Glenavy and need to win this one if they are to stay in contention but home advantage to swing it in favour of an in form St. James’ side.

Group Two

Cuchullian’s Dunloy v Con Magees Glenravel

Dunloy lead the way in the table with three wins from three starts and they will hope to continue that form from the visit of Glenravel. Glenravel will travel to Dunloy in search of points but ground advantage may well aid the Cuchullian’s to another win.
