It has really been very disappointing over the last six weeks. Firstly two home matches against Knockbreda which we lost 3-1 followed by another defeat 4-1 to Loughgall saw two clubs below us close the gap considerably. Next up was two away matches against the two clubs below us - firstly Limavady where we left with a 1-1 draw followed by a 2-1 defeat at Dergview. It was after this match that Colly Malone and the football club parted ways. Colly was brought in at a difficult time and certainly steadied the ship however, with injuries to key players, and with some believing the grass was greener on the other side in the January window made it all the more difficult. We all wish Colly well.

Next up was a break from the league when we hosted South Yorkshire Police in the last 16 of the Police Sport UK cup at Newforge. With the PSNI defending the cup the team ran out comfortably winning 8-2 - we now travel to play Avon & Somerset in the quarter final in April.

In came new manager Sammy McFadden. Sammy, no stranger to the club had played for the RUC team in the old 'B' division. Sammy hold the Pro Licence and everyone connected to the club wishes Sammy every success.

First up under Sammy was a home match against Ballyclare Comrades at Newforge. This was a match in which the police really should have won especially in the first half however, it's the same old story of not taking our chances resulting in a 2-2 draw. Next up was an away trip to Breda park to play our bogey team. This match saw Breda win 5-2 and was an example of how you should take your chances when they arise!

With no match for two weeks hopefully this will give the management team time to prepare fo the relagation battle with four matches remaining - our destiny is in our hands!!

Onwards and Upwards,
Ken Green,
Chairman.
