No games lost at weekend

All games scheduled in the Ballymena Premier and Intermediate League at the weekend were played for the first time in quite a few weeks.

This sets clubs up nicely with at least one game under their belt for this weekend’s IFA Intermediate Cup second round. Nine Intermediate teams will be at home other than Ballymoney United, who travel to Ards Rangers as Glebe Rangers are at home on the same day.

 In the IFA Junior Cup three Junior Teams will be in competition with remaining teams all playing league games.
