Another important wins for 2 of the 3 senior teams. The 1st XI with a win in a close game against Cregagh on Saturday which sees Lisburn still sitting pretty on top of section 1. The seconds, unfortunately didn’t get started on Sunday, the rain means that they will have to re arrange that fixture. Finally, the 3rd XI continued their winning ways without even having to turn up this time in Junior 5 which sees them move to within 1 win of a possible promotion spot, congratulations to William and his team and we hope they can continue winning ways in for the rest of the season ahead. All three teams are in action this weekend with the firsts at home to local rivals Derriaghy which is definitely a game worth coming along to watch. The seconds are away to CIYMS II’s on Sunday in a must win game and the III’s are Woodvale III’s in the park on Sunday where a win will continue to put pressure on those 2 promotions spots.
