MONEYSLANE’S first team will travel this weekend to in-form Lurgan Town who will be tough opponents and come on the back of a good win at the weekend against Banbridge AFC.

Lurgan beat Slane earlier in the season at Crystal Park in the league by four goals to three in an enthralling game and Slane will be looking to overcome that this coming Saturday at Lurgan Town Arena.

A good crowd is expected to travel with the squad and Neil McCullough will be hoping the weather is kind and they get back on the pitch and secure all three points. All players and supporters are reminded that the kick off time is changed back to 2.15pm.

Moneyslane Reserves will host Lisanally Rangers this Saturday at Dromore Leisure Centre in Round One of the Harlequin Oil Tanks Mid-Ulster Cup with a 1.45pm kick off.

Manager Marty Hanna and Assistant Manager, Gareth McDowell will have their players well drilled for this game against tough opposition.

Lisanally play one division above Slane and were promoted last season but Slane will be up for this game and you can be sure of an action packed game with plenty of goals.

Meanwhile the Third team will travel to Bells Bridge, Dromara this Saturday to lock horns with the League leaders in a local derby encounter and will be confident after beating them way back in November by four goals to three.

Manager Davy McCullough has Slane in a great league position this season sitting in fourth spot having won eight, drew one and lost three out of twelve games played and he will be hoping to add another three points to that tally.

Again this will be a big ask for Davy and the players who will be well pumped up for this local derby blood and thunder game.
