Despite victory today, unfortunately we have been relegated from the Danske Bank Premier League after 6 seasons. It was a season that promised so much but never delivered until it was too late. We haven't been good enough and accept our fate. We've made some wonderful memories and friends throughout the league, and despite the hard times, we've enjoyed every minute of it! County Fermanagh needs Premier League football & we will return stronger than before. It's been a histori
Ballinamallard United slipped out of the Danske Bank Premiership after six seasons despite this defeat of Glentoran at The Oval. In the end the Mallards' revival under Harry McConkey towards the end of the campaign proved to be too little, too late to avoid automatic relegation for the Ferney Park side. The visitors had a big chance to race into the lead early on when, on nine minutes, James McKenna's goalbound header was cleared off the line. However, they only had to a few
Once again we are delighted to be awarded both a Premiership and UEFA Licence for the 2018/19 season. We of course indebted to those who helped to prepare and submit the relevant documentation, but in particular to Jackie Palmer and Keith Thompson for their assistance.

It's another hard earned point in our fight for survival, but with Carrick Rangers win over Glentoran we fall bottom of the Danske Bank Premiership on goal difference. Michael McLellan put the home side ahead on 10 minutes but Ryan Curran responded immediately, meeting Colm McLaughlin's cross from the left to score his sixteenth of the season. The Mallards had further chances to win the game but couldn't find a way through. It means that the relegation fight goes down to the

It was tough going at times, but character came to the fore for the Mallards who recorded a vital victory over relegation rivals Carrick Rangers tonight. That result moves us off the bottom of the table and two points ahead of Rangers with two games remaining. Shane McGinty, who put in a sensational performance, opened the scoring on 40 minutes when he turned in midfield, drove forward and smashed a shot into the net from 25 yards giving goalkeeper Harry Doherty no chance. It
Huge congratulations to Stuart, Marc, Paul, Adam and our U-13s who are through to the final of the NIBFA Cup after a stunning performance against Portadown. Having gone a goal down the boys fought their way back with goals from Alex Magee, Conor O'Hanlon (pen) and Padraig Dillon in a terrific team performance. The boys can now look forward to the final against Bertie Peacock Youths
