Where the mountains of Mourne sweep down to the sea, Ballinamallard were found to be!
Harry McConkey and staff brought the first team squad to South Down for a 2 day training camp which included a match against Premiership side Warrenpoint Town.
"The camp was a real success for us in terms of time on the training field and team bonding, and I am delighted with a 1-0 win over Warrenpoint at a venue where we have traditionally struggled" commented McConkey upon the teams return.
"We are very grateful to Bobby, Mark and Robert for making us feel so welcome at Annalong FC; their pitch was in excellent condition and we were left wanting for nothing! On behalf of the Club I would also like to thank Donna and her team for the excellent facilities and hospitality at the Cornmill Centre, Annalong. All our meals were of great quality provided by chef Joey at the Galley Restaurant, and with top service from Aileen, Jennifer and staff".
Thank you to all for making these few days very special for all at Ballinamallard United FC.
