Newry 1-3 Ballinamallard

The Mallards closed the gap at the top of the Bluefin Sport Championship with a fabulous away victory. With a defeat for Loughgall and Portadown also dropping points it means that Harry McConkey's men are two points off second and first positions. It was a fantastic start with Matthew Smyth and Ross Taheny both heading in Duwayne McManus corners to give an early two nil lead. Mark McCabe did pull a goal back before half time for the hosts but when they were reduced to 10 men after the break, the Ducks took full advantage. Ryan Campbell netted a third to seal victory and cap a comprehensive performance. Dergview, who were defeated today, are the visitors next Saturday to Ferney Park

Mallards 4-2 Welders

The Mallards returned to winning ways after last Saturday's blip away to Ballyclare, with a fifth league win in the last six games. Having conceeded on the brink of half time, the home side responded after the break with an equaliser from Sean McEvoy before Ryan O'Reilly headed his side infront. Jason McCartney made it 3-1 with an inswinging free kick before the Welders pulled a goal back with a free header. Captain Richard Clarke made sure of the points however when he slotted in a penalty after Callum Moorehead had been fouled. Another pleasing win and performance from the Blues.


Today's home match will introduce the #OnTheBall campaign which will provide free sanitary products in the female bathrooms for all who need to use them. All of these products have kindly been donated by members of the ladies committee. We are among a very small number of Irish League clubs who have joined this campaign and hope that many more will follow! So ladies, please take what you need and enjoy the match!
