Ballymoney fourths have again made it to the final of the McCambley Cup, next Saturday 23rd April.

The final is to be held at the home of Ulster Rugby, the Kingspan Stadium, Ravenhill.

This is the fourth time Ballymoney fourths have made it to the final over the past 15 years, however the team has always ended runner up, with previous defeats to Ballnahinch, Ards and last year to Malone.

Captain John Waide has played in all four previous finals and this will be his third final as captain of the 4ths team.

He explained: “We again face a strong Malone side in a repeat of last year’s final.

“However, this Ballymoney team has recently been playing great attacking rugby and we are hopeful that we can reverse last year’s result and finally get our hands on that prestigious McCambley trophy.

“There is currently a great buzz of excitement and anticipation around the club.

“We are expecting a big travelling support, with currently three supporters buses and numerous other members and friends heading on the day to the Kingspan to support their team.”

If anyone would like to travel on the supporters bus and hopefully witness the Ballymoney team finally lift the McCambley Cup please contact the club house 028 276 62991.
