Ballymoney United boss John Fall is dreaming of a plum draw in the next round of the Irish Cup after a 3-1 away victory in Belfast against Newington YC at the weekend.
Gerald Gillan grabbed two and Dermot Larkin was the other United scorer as they overhauled a 1-0 deficit at Seaview to book their place in the 5th Round of the cup with the big boys of the Irish League.
Fall told Times Sport: “I am delighted with this win. The players put in a great performance and showed we are as good any other Championship Two team and I would like to especially thank the fans who travelled up to support us. Now I would like a big draw and it would be great to be at home or to have a good day out on the road. We played Ballymena in the League Cup and enjoyed ourselves and we want more of these type of games.”
MAGHERAFELT SKY BLUES 4
Magherafelt and Dunloy shared eight goals and the points in the McReynolds League Cup game. Ciaran Monaghan scored a hat-trick for the Sky Blues and Michael Devlin got their other goal while Chris Smiley, Karl Fitzpatrick, Duane Scott and an own goal saw Dunloy take a point from the game.
Ballybogey dropped their first points in the league this season when they played Dervock on Saturday morning .
It was a typical derby where both teams really wanted to win the game which finished 1-1 with ‘Bogey’s scorer being Andy Mooney and Dervock’s Corey Simpson.
It was a good game for the big crowd .
Ballybogey officials believe they will need to get missing players on the park for the top of the table clash next week away to Ballycastle.
