The fixtures for the 2016/17 Danske Bank Premier league have been released, with the Mallards starting at home to Linfield on Saturday 6th August, in a game which could see former Mallard Roy Carroll make his Linfield league debut.
Following that, the Mallards travel to Shamrock Park on the Wednesday night to face Portadown, before another home fixture on Saturday 13th against Ballymena.
We will travel to Dungannon on Boxing day and the 3rd January, with a New Years Eve game at home to Portadown sandwiched inbetween with a 3pm kick off.
Newly promoted Ards will be the opponents on Saturday 17th September at Ferney Park, with the reigning Champions Crusaders the following week at Seaview.
After last season debacle, Ballinamallard will be hoping for better luck with two trips scheduled to Carrick Rangers.
Ards, Ballymena, Cliftonville, Coleraine, Linfield and Portadown will all visit Ferney Park twice.
