Homers strengthen in bid for 6 in a row!

Thursday, 3 August 2017

CHAMPIONS Harryville Homers are going for a BSML record of 6 in a row this season and manager Robert Duddy has been busy in the transfer market as he hopes to keep his charges on top domestically and also make inroads in both Junior competitions once again.
Ryan Bamber and Jonathan Spence have both joined from Intermediate sides and will add more competition in a squad already littered with quality.
The rumoured return of David Nicholl will also add more quality to Homers who once again are likely to be the team to beat.
The chasing pack is likely to be led once again by Ahoghill Thistle who have managed to keep hold of their panel from last year and have added more experience at the back in the form of Alan Norton. Manager Stewart McDonald will hope they can build on a very successful season last year and knock Homers off the top.
All Saints will once again be among the front ranks despite having a quiet summer in the transfer market. The return from injury of Ryan Gregg and Gordon Dillon will give Manager Eoin Hudson more options throughout the park and he will be hoping his side can get closer to the front two this year and maybe add some silverware for the first time since 2013.
Abbeyview were the surprise package last year and they will be hoping to kick on from their 4th place finish and Rainey Cup success as they look to add consistency to their season.
Carniny Rangers and Clough Rangers suffered lacklustre campaigns last season and both will be hoping they can improve and challenge once again for Top Four and trophies.
Of the three promoted sides, Southside Rangers look the best equipped to deal with the step up as they will look to consolidate their place in Division One.
Both Carniny Amateur & Youth and Ahoghill Rovers will be hoping they can pick up enough points to keep them in Division One, but both know they will be in for a tough season in the top flight.
