06 Sep CIYMS vs Ballynahinch Preview
This Saturday sees CI take on Ballynahinch 2s in a Conference fixture being played at Campbell College . Hinch 2s are always competitive and only lost narrowly to Grosvenor last week. With Brian McLaughlin coaching the Hinch senior squad, they will be well drilled and fit. CI have had a big win away to Dundalk a fortnight ago, and despite a reversal against an excellent Dromore team last week, will be looking to return to winning ways this week. Some very promising League debuts were seen from the young recruits last week and Saturday offers a chance to build on that. Please try and come along and get behind the boys.
Elsewhere in Championship 1, Ballyclare will be hopeful of a convincing win at home to newly promoted Clogher Valley, a newly reinforced Carrick will look for a home win against Portadown and Dromore will be tested but should prevail on their trip to Fermanagh to take on Enniskillen. Harder to call will be the Grosvenor v Instonians clash at Malone. Both are likely to feature in the top 4 but the recent recruitment drive by Instonians should probably give them the edge. We will play both before the end of September.
