FIXTURE BOARD

SAT 9TH APRIL

RANGERS

This Saturday Rangers host 1st Bangor OB in a league fixture at Iveagh Park. The reverse fixture in Bangor a few weeks ago went Rathfriland’s way and on current form this one should do likewise.

Rathfriland currently top of the league and another three points this Saturday would help them on their way. Kick off 2pm.

RANGERS RESERVES

Rangers Reserves this Saturday host Armagh City Reserves in a Reserve Championship league fixture at Ingram Park. The visitors sit third place in the league table with games in hand so will be a tough encounter although Keith Megaw’s boys have taken six points out of the last six and will have the confidence to give this one a real go. Kick off 2pm.

COLTS

At the time of going to print, the Colts’ fixture is still to be confirmed.
