Clean sheets galore this weekend! Mark McIlvenney of the Seniors kept a clean sheet in the Seconds’ 3 – 0 win out at Whitehead .. or somewhere up there. Kayo Dobroloski of 14 Star only had to go to the Grove to keep everything and everybody at bay in a 5 niller at 9.00am on Saturday morning. Luke Kilpatrick notched up another one in 16 Star’s 2 – 0 win at Hydebank while 15 Star’s Ethan Lin joined the table with his first clean sheet of the season on Friday night. Well done
With so many fixtures falling foul of the weather this week and last, we’re delighted just to have anything to report to you this week at all.

Congratulations to the under 15s who brought home the first trophy of the season, when they beat Albert Foundry 2 – 1 in the Supplementary Cup final at a wet and chilly Seaview.
