100 not out

Defender Colm McLaughlin made his 100th Ballinamallard appearance on Friday evening, and it was one that he won't forget in a hurry! The 24 year old joined Ballinamallard on loan from Sligo Rovers in January 2013 but he only made 1 first team appearance before joining Institute in the summer. Whitey Anderson re-signed him ahead of the 2014/15 season and his 30 appearances deservedly seen him pick up the Managers Player of the Year award. Colm continued his fine form before unfortunately picking up a serious injury away to Coleraine in January 2016 which seen him go under the surgeon's knife, and he spent a full year on the road to recovery. Since then he has gone on to wear the Captain's arm

Ballinamallard 6-4 Cliftonville

Ballinamallard United collected a crucial three points after hitting six goals past Cliftonville in a sensational game at Ferney Park. The Mallards moved in front on 13 minutes through a Ryan Curran finish into the top corner after Sean Noble did well to cross the ball from the right. Noble added a second eight minutes later when Stephen O'Flynn delivered the ball forward from inside his own half before Jay Donnelly pulled one back for the visitors after the ball fell for him from a blocked Ross Lavery effort. Gavin Dykes' side restored their two-goal advantage on the half-hour when a Levi Ives error on the right allowed O'Flynn through to beat Brian Neeson. And it was 4-1 very early in the

Warrenpoint Town 0-1 Ballinamallard

A valient effort from the Mallards who pushed their opponents all the way, having played the final 25 minutes with 10 men. In the first few minutes of the match Stephen Moan cleared off the line whilst Ryan Curran hit the bar with a header mid way through the half. On 39 minutes Conor McMenamin headed the hosts into the lead after a corner wasn't properly cleared. On 65 minutes Darren Murray slipped in behind the Mallards backline before falling to the turf, and referee Keith Kennedy awarded a foul and sent Ryan O'Reilly for an early bath. Brush denied the Point a second whilst Curran went close again for the Mallards, who despite having the majority of the second half play, couldn't find th

Ballinamallard 2-2 Glentoran

There was late heartbreak for the Mallards in this thrilling encounter at Ferney Park. The home side looked to be set to take all 3 points after an excellent performance, but a James Knowles free kick deep into injury time gave Gary Haveron's men a point. Sean Noble scored his second in two games after 12 minutes, when he slotted the ball past Elliott Morris after Shane McGinty had played him in on goal. Morris then pulled off an excellent stop to deny James McKenna before Glentoran equalised on 19 minutes when a free kick from wide ghosted through a packed penalty area and into the net. Both sides had further chances before the home side were awarded a penalty on 39 minutes with Shane McGin

Davy Kee returns on loan

Ballinamallard fans will be thrilled with the news that midfielder David Kee has returned to the club on loan after a two and a half year absence, and becomes out sixth January signing. The Killen man originally signed for the Mallards in January 2009 but his impressive performances caught the eye of Linfield, whom he eventually joined in the summer of 2015 after initially rejecting their approaches. He made an immediate impact with a goal in the Europa League away to Slovakian team Spartak Trnava before unfortunately falling out of favour after a change of manager, and he joined Coleraine in October 2016 where he was immediately appointed Captain by Oran Kearney. At the start of the 2017/18

Ballinamallard 4-2 Immaculata

The Mallards progressed into Round 6 of the Tennent’s Irish Cup with this home win over Amatuer League side Immaculata, and they will now face Ballymena United away. Sean Noble scored a debut goal on 6 minutes when he picked up a loose back pass before rounding the goalkeeper, whilst Leddy and Curran both went close in the opening stages. Immaculata almost equalised on the counter attack as half time approached, but James McKenna got back just in time to put a block in against Adrian Oliver and it remained one nil. The second half didn’t start well for Ballinamallard, with ex-Linfield player Brian McCaul firing a free kick straight through the Mallards wall and past Brush for an equaliser, b

Quartet sign for Ballinamallard

The January transfer window is barely open, but Gavin Dykes has already snapped up another four players in an effort to strengthen the Mallards and lift them off the bottom of the table. Joining recent addition Ryan O'Reilly is Sean Noble, Michael Kerr, Stephen O'Flynn and Packie Mailey, who will all hopefully have clearance to play ahead of our Tennent's Irish Cup match at home to Immaculata this Saturday. Noble is a 21 year old right sided attacker who was previously on the books of Carrick Rangers, Waterford United and Bray Wanderers, and he can play right midfield or striker. Michael Kerr is a young right back who joins on a six month loan from Crusaders. The 19 year old is highly rated

Ballinamallard 0-3 Crusaders

Stephen Baxter's men took full advantage of other postponments to move top of the Danske Bank Premier League with victory at Ferney Park. The Mallards frustrated their opponents in the first half but the loss of Ryan O'Reilly at half time, combined with some magic from Jordan Forsythe set the tone for the second half. Forsythe controlled a clearance on his knee before smashing a volley off the right post to give Crusaders the lead. An unfortunate Matty Smyth own goal added a second, deflecting Heatley's cross past Brush, and Gavin Whyte could have got his name on the scoresheet only for an excellent interception from Ross Taheny. Billy Joe Burns added a late third, shooting through a crowded
