Christmas Period Preview Dec 21, 2018

Manager Stephen McDonnell & Captain Simon Kelly give us their thoughts ahead of the busy Christmas period. 

‘Tomorrow we travel to Seaview to face a very tough & physical opponent in Crusaders. They will be looking at gathering momentum heading into the Christmas period, however we are in the same mindset. We will have to be well organised and take our opportunities as the game plays out.

‘We look forward to playing both Newry and Coleraine over the Christmas period. Two tough opponents who will offer us lots of problems however we have been doing well in recent times and hope to carry that consistency forward with us into these two fixtures.

Stephen McDonnell, Manager 


‘Disappointing not to have a game last weekend due to the Glentoran game being postponed but we now look forward to a very busy Christmas period. Over Christmas we have alot of tough fixtures, starting with a trip to Seaview this Saturday.

‘We also have two massive home games in which we hope there will be big crowds especially for the local derby match against Newry City. Newry are on a good run at the minute so we will be expecting a very tough game from them. Then our following home game is Coleraine who we beat at home a few weeks back. We will be hoping for the same result but know we will be in for another extremely hard game
